Testimonial for Melissa F. Haley (they/she)

Melissa was my Doula the last couple of months of my pregnancy, Birth and 1 month postpartum.

I signed up for her services two months before the birth of my daughter. She was there for me the weeks leading up to me giving birth , and was very empathetic. During the last few weeks of pregnancy she was on call and She was always available, She was the best listener. she listened to everything that I was struggling with emotionally and knew exactly what to say, I am forever grateful for that.

Once I was in labor she never left my side, she gave me encouragement and reassurance. During labor she assisted me with pressure points To help alleviate pain. knew exactly where to massage and put pressure on my back during my back labor. It was a lifesaver! She knew exactly what to say. This helped me a great deal, especially during the transition phase. Once my daughter was born she provided me  with breast-feeding positioning. Which I had no idea what I was doing, so I really appreciated her guidance. In fact, since she showed me the football hold While breast-feeding, its been my favorite, Most comfortableposition for me and my baby.

I would highly recommend her for any mother to be . If you’re looking for a kind, present, generous,highly knowledgeable Doula, then Melissa is for you.
