Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

Advice for the husbands out there...


If you are like me, when your wife approached you about hiring a doula you probably thought it was an unnecessary additional expense. Well I'm here to tell you it's not! I’m positive she saved us money. We did not have a doula for our first child and I found myself getting in all kinds of uncomfortable positions to help comfort my wife when she was laboring. Double hip squeeze and all kinds of back breaking positions, plus trying to remember what we learned from our birthing class. It wasn’t easy. With our second child we hired Melissa and she was awesome! She was so much help to my wife and I before, during, and after the delivery of our son. Not only did she do a lot of the uncomfortable support things during labor which free’ d me up to hold my wife’s hand and help encourage her; she also took maternity pictures, newborn pictures, and came to our house a few times when my wife was having trouble getting the new baby to latch/nurse correctly.


We unexpectedly went into labor early, and Melissa even left her own birthday party prematurely to come meet us at the hospital. We had planned to have her help us labor at home by when my wife’s water broke and contractions started we had to get to the hospital quick. Melissa had a lot of experience recommending various laboring positions and even took tons of pictures during the birth which was really cool for my wife to see since she never would have otherwise.
All I can say is that if we ever had another kid I would hire her in a heartbeat. 10 out of 10!
