Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

I just gave birth to my 2nd baby a perfect little boy! I cannot express how different my two experiences have been. I had a little girl 2 1/2yrs ago, had an epidural, and was given pit. There were no complications with the birth and we were both healthy BUT my daughter was a horrible nurser and I suffered from post partum depression, the troubles with nursing didn't help our bonding and the first few months of her life were very difficult. After doing some research on the side effects of epidurals and pit I decided I wanted to try a natural birth. I was skeptical that I could do it because I'm a pansy when it comes to pain! My husband introduced me to Melissa. Our husbands are war buddies and he thought her expertise might be helpful. Melissa met with me twice before I gave birth and provided me with encouraging words and great advice on how to deal with the last couple months of pregnancy. I was overdue and Melissa was there encouraging me to hang in there and wait till he was ready. When I was 5dys overdue I scheduled to have my water broken. Melissa was there with my husband and me when I checked it and stayed with us through the whole process. After the Dr. broke my water Melissa was there making sure I was comfortable, showing me different positions to ease the pain, reminding me to release tension, and reminding me of questions I had for the Dr. When my contractions were coming closer and stronger Melissa massaged my hips and helped me through each contraction. Before I knew it, it was time to push and my handsome little guy was born! Melissa was very aware of what was important to me and spent the entire day making sure I was comfortable. She showed me a few techniques to help with nursing and my little man latched on right away. The birth of my son was a wonderful experience and my husband and I are so grateful that Melissa was there to cheer me on! We love our little man so much and had such a wonderful experience with Melissa as our Doula!
