Testimonial for Melinda Ferguson, AdvCD/PCD(DONA)

When I met with Melinda, I immediately felt comfortable and heard when speaking with her. She asked me great questions that helped me understand what it was I was hoping to have in a doula and what I envisioned for my birth. Whenever I needed to get a hold of Melinda, she was very easy to contact and promptly returned my phone call or email.

I enjoyed working with Melinda because she is intuitive, experienced, calm and confident in aiding the birth journey and process. She was very open and thought of every option and Spinning Babies technique to help me move my baby down the birth canal. Melinda worked with me for 40 hours while I labored at home to help me try to have the natural, unmedicated vaginal birth that I wanted for my baby and myself. While I was not able to deliver at home or the birth center that I had planned, Melinda helped me find resolution and be okay with changing my birth plan which helped me stay calm during the transfer process to a new environment and new care providers at the hospital.

Overall I appreciated how resourceful, kind, dedicated and giving Melinda was in my experience with her. I was very lucky to work with her during my birth. I absolutely recommend Melinda for doula care. She followed up with me after birth to make sure the baby and I were thriving and offered breastfeeding support and helped me with advice on processing my birth and ways to heal postpartum. Melinda is a wonderful resource to the community for families, mothers and babies.
