Testimonial for Melissa F. Haley (they/she)

To whom it may concern

I am writing this testimony to attest to the incredible value of having Melissa as my doula. I was in a emotional rockslide when I was first put in contact with her, being overseas away from home, becoming pregnant during a catastrophic pandemic, living in a van and having no income other than my husband being on unemployment, times were very hard. And bringing life into the world is meant to be one of the most joyous times of your life but we were faced with many unexpected hurdles.

Having Melissa as our doula was a true joy. In these unprecedented times we were unsure of the amount of support we would receive via zoom. However we were pleasantly surprised with Melissa’s ability to make us feel supported from a distance. She provided invaluable resources in terms of birth education and various techniques to help us make prenatal decisions. I was impressed with her knowledge and also her way of including my husband who throughout the process grew immensely in confidence on how best to support me, his wife, through the whole journey.

We received beautiful gifts in the mail, that were surprising, inspiring and incredibly useful, from explorative art projects to essential birth tools. You really felt that Melissa put her whole heart into her work and we quickly evolved from strangers to friends. It will be a privilege and a important support network to all future parents who work with Melissa. I would without hesitation recommend her to family and friends and am sincerely grateful to have had her as part of my birth team.

May this letter show our full support in Melissa’s journey to becoming a fully accredited doula.


With full hearts
