Testimonial for Melissa F. Haley (they/she)

We had Melissa recently help with the birth of our first daughter a few weeks ago in October. Originally we didn't think we needed a birth doula, but as we got closer to the due date we realized that we wanted to prioritize having a great birth experience so that we would be fine to have our second in the future. Melissa was fantastic and wonderfully supportive - we are so glad that we decided to have her!

We had a great talk immediately over our first Zoom meeting, and Melissa was in constant contact and was highly involved in my updates about our daughter's status in the weeks prior to my due date. It was a struggle as the OBs recommended earlier induction, but Melissa helped to provide us as much educational material as she could to help us make the decision. 

In the end, we induced a few days prior to my due date, and she was there for us as soon as we needed her at the hospital. Even though it was our first time meeting in person, I felt as if we were close already - I can't say how much I appreciate that she also helped my husband in keeping us relaxed, and was there to also hold my hand and coach me while pushing!

Melissa genuinely loves what she does, and we definitly felt her deep commitment to making sure our experience went well.
