Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

Finding out I was pregnant was about the scariest moment of my life. I was 16, in an already concerning mental state, and though my only option was to pretend it never happened and drive out of state to make it all just go away. But I reached out, not knowing if my decision was right at all, and I told my mom. I was able to decide with her that we wanted this baby and we were going to make the absolute best out of it. And in finding Melissa everything fell together perfectly. I was no longer scared to deliver and I was confident that I could breastfeed my baby exclusively with her help. Melissa posed as a second mother to me in the delivery room and got me through every contraction and push. I labored for 12 hours with only 1 dose of fentanyl and nitrous oxide and was able to push my baby out in only 20 minutes. My baby was also OP, and Melissa was able to get him to flip into position and make me as comfortable as possible. Melissa advocated for my needs and there was never any weird tension when I needed medicine. I would recommend her to ANY pregnant person, but I would especially recommend her to people like me. Being a teen mom is a lot less scary when you have someone like her to help you through.
