Testimonial for Melanie Smith

We couldn’t have done it without Melanie Smith! During our first meet with Melanie my husband was still hesitant, we had both just recently learned about doulas. During our visit Melanie took her time to get to know us and tell us about herself. Melanie is the kindest most gentle person I have ever met. As soon as our visit ended my husband told me, no questions asked we need her. And I agreed! During my pregnancy Melanie made me comfortable, this being my first pregnancy I had A LOT of questions and she was always there for me. Melanie offering valuable knowledge as well as emotional support. During labor Melanie played the biggest roll, she kept me calm and offered assistance to help me with any discomfort I was having. A big portion of my labor is a blur now becuase it was quite painful and long but what I do remember was Melanie rubbing my back, offering me water after every wave as well as honey sticks (i remember these tasted like heaven), cards that read positive affirmations whiched helped me during the toughest parts of labor, kept a cool towel on my forehead... there are countless things Melanie did for us but what stood out the most to me was her unwavering and genuine care, because of Melanie I was not afraid. We couldn’t have done it without her! I am so very thankful that we found Melanie We love her so much!
