Hiring Mel was probably one of the best decisions and investments we made in support of the birth of our first child. We found out about the pregnancy after we were already past the first trimester, and were more than a tad overwhelmed with all the variables and the decisions that go along with birth. We appreciated that Mel offered to meet us before we committed to make sure we were the right fit – we definitely were.
I met Mel when I was 12 weeks pregnant and knew right away that I wanted her to be part of our birth journey. Mel was an amazing support from the second we hired her. She constantly checked-in to see how I was feeling (both physically and mentally) and her positive attitude and encouragement always brightened my day.
I can not recommend Mel The Doula’s services enough. She will make you feel supported. She will never arrived empty handed. She will not disappoint. My over all experience with Mel was excellent and everything I could have hoped for. Maybe more? Definitely more.
She is so personable and truly cares about her clients. She makes you feel at ease immediately and her calm and warm nature was exactly what we needed for our first birth experience.
