Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

My husband and I were expecting our first child in May 2020 and had heard about Melissa from some close friends. I had wanted to try an unmedicated birth and knew a doula would help us acheive that. After meeting Melissa, we knew we wanted to have her on our team for our birth immediately after leaving. Little did we know we were about to be in a global pandemic...Melissa came to the house and prepared us as best as she could for a labor where she might not be able to come. We felt ready to tackle our labor unmedicated with her help and would have her on Skype through the entire process. Our labor ended up being a whirlwind of an experience with a very dramatic water break and long labor. Although I ended up with an epidural, I strongly believe that Melissa gave me the knowledge to recognize when I was suffering and to accept whatever happened with an open heart. Once we got home, she came to the house and helped me with breastfeeding and just sat and talked with us. She's quite literally always one text or midnight phone call away for any questions or first time mama concerns. I couldn't be more grateful to have her on our side for not only our labor but postpartum as well. She's also an amazing photographer and gifted us some precious memories of our pregnancy and pictures of our new family. 

I feel like Melissa has become a good friend and she has the purest heart!
