Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

Just say yes! Melissa is not only professional and experienced, she is also empathetic, understanding, and anticipatory. That last one is paramount! Melissa helped us not only deliver our first born but also prepare for the birth, as well as review potential scenarios that may come up. She helped my wife feel understood, cared for, and ready.

Men, you may think you’re strong enough for this task of supporting your wife through birth but let me encourage you to put down your pride and realize you might not have everything your wife may need during this process. Melissa does not just help your wife, but is also instrumental in helping you facilitate the birth your wife desires by anticipating what she or you may need. I know, without Melissa‘s amazing help, our birth would not be as smooth and beautiful as it was!

Melissa is not only strong, but she also has a seemingly unlimited number of different counter pressure points she can apply which your wife will need in labor. This allows you to focus on supporting your wife in other ways! Melissa encouraged my wife through every single contraction, reminding her that her body is designed for this very purpose that this pressure is only temporary and it is leading to a beautiful moment where she will be able to hold her baby. She recommended different positions to help the baby get in line. Additionally, our baby was not progressing down and was stuck at -1 station. She noticed that my wife’s hips were out of alignment. Because of this, we called a chiropractor for a home visit, and after the adjustment, our baby started down the birth canal properly. If it were not for Melissa, we would not have seen or known what was going on and why our baby was not progressing. Trust me when I say, you need this woman!

Thank you, Melissa!
