Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

It's difficult to put into words the gratefulness that I feel about having Melissa as part of Team London. I'm a father of now 3 girls and this was my first time having a doula. As I got to know Melissa during the talks and visits, I immediately saw how much she truly cares about her moms and the special bond she has with them. I have two teenage daughters, from a previous marriage, who both had appointments for their birth, including a c-section. I never got to witness the intensity of laboring. Going into this laboring and birthing process, I felt prepared (as much as I could be) and had a better idea what to expect because of Melissa, especially while trying to navigate through this crazy pandemic. At the time of hearing about her from my wife, I had never even heard of a Doula. I feel like the Doula role should be mandatory for anyone going through pregnancy, especially first time mom's and dad's. There's no manual that comes with first time pregnancies, but a doula is the closest thing to that. Even though her priority role is being there for mom, she taught me what it takes to be a great laboring partner by educating me on what to do and say through all the different possible scenarios. As a husband who was next to my wife while laboring at home in the middle of the night, it was incredibly reassuring to know that I could call Melissa for guidance and the fact that she was ready to jump out of bed and come to the house, regardless of time, is something you can't put a price on. Melissa is a true professional who has experienced countless, successful births on her watch and having that type of experience on our support team has been nothing short of a blessing. Her experience has been backed up by and verified by a couple of the best midwives in the treasure valley. If you're in the Boise area and going through pregnancy, I highly recommend getting in touch with Melissa.
