Testimonial for Melissa F. Haley (they/she)

I'm writing this review for those on the fence: Here is why you need a doula, and why it needs to be Melissa.

My wife told me all the benefits of a doula, but when we first started shopping for one, I was discouraged by the cost. Melissa was not only one of the most reasonably priced in our areas, she also brought more than her value in her first visit. Melissa has so much knowledge on the process and options during birth, and as a former teacher, her bag of interactable lessons will teach you what to expect and what choices you can make to have the birth you want. My wife and I felt confident and reassured before we ever reached the hospital.

At the hospital, Melissa once again showed her value and strength. She concisely communicated with doctors, midwifes, and nurses - translating and buffering so my wife and I never felt burdened by them, while always advocating for the birth plan we created. Melissa knew I wanted to be hands on during my wife's labor and gave me guidance and support I needed when I was overwhelmed, and the assistance when I was fatigued. She was by my wife's side for the entire 30 hours she was in labor.

My wife and I were blessed by the strength and wisdom of Melissa, and believe every parent would benefit from reaching out to her.
