What are people saying about Melissa?

Slide 1 of 3

With our first birth, I was so happy to have doulas with us to advocate for our birth plan, keep an eye on my spouse and me, and interpret the fast-paced actions of the medical staff for us. I was so happy to have the same doulas with us for our second, which in top of everything else, allowed us to involve our firstborn in an appropriate manner. Small touches like taking photos and showing up in a middle of the night blizzard show the love that the doulas brought to our team.
