Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

To even explain how much I love Melissa Johnson as a person let alone a doula I need to explain my experiences with birth. My first two were C-sections done in California (don’t even get me started) which led me to have my third at a birth center in another state. Come my fourth child I wanted the birth center feel with pain management. So I elected to have this birth at a hospital under guidance of a CNM who was amazing. She mentioned having Melissa as a pain management option and was I glad I had her there. She helped direct a friend and my husband where to push on my back and knees and had the magic touch herself. Of course I called her for the expectancy of my fifth child before I did my CNM!! Luckily she was available to help. This time it was just me and her and the CNM. Oh and a bit of laughing gas which made labor blissful between her magic hands and added IV Newbane. I swear we were linked because I only had to think of how great it would be for a drink and Melissa would appear with the hefty hospital cup or a barf bag to gag into. My favorite part was her calm voice and laughter to help through translation. I tell all my girl friends that ask to get a doula just from my experience with Melissa. She is amazing and very chill which helps to have when the world feels like it’s falling out under you. She made sure the nurses where aware of my preferences in such a firm but unassuming way that no one made a fuss. (Bad experiences in California made me question having a baby at all in the hospital again. She took the bad taste and changed it to something wonderful) Melissa listens and hears what you need and then goes out of her way to make sure your needs are met. She is also a freakin amazing artist who does henna.  She knows her business of making mammas relaxed and in their element to have a better than good birth experience. There was no awkwardness ever.  Just love.
