Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

I am a first time mother, and at first I did not think I needed a doula. I was SO wrong! I really wanted a natural childbirth, and without Melissa I may not have accomplished that goal. She was very supportive during labor. There came a point when I realized she started reading my mind - like when I needed a certain focal point to stay where it was or a cold washcloth on my forehead. It was awesome to not even have to ask. I felt so cared for. It made me be able to handle the pain better.

My husband was not there for my labor because I could not bear to have anyone in the room. I didn't know I was going to feel that way until labor started, so I am very glad I had a woman support person, my doula, Melissa to be there for me. I know for a fact that if I would have been able to have my husband be part of the labor, she would have made him very comfortable. They met a few days before my labor started, and he said, "I think I am going to need her there!" This first birth is going to be remembered so joyfully, and I feel I owe a ton of that credit to Melissa.
