Testimonials from Melissa’s Clients

Brittnee R.

“I had the pleasure of having Melissa be at the birth of my son. When I got pregnant my husband wanted me to look at more of a natural approach to birth. I was very unsure I could handle it. Melissa has been a long time friend and I knew she had her baby naturally. So I went to her for answers. I went into labor and she was the first person I contacted. She was able to be with us while we were at home and when we were at the hospital! She gave me support through the contractions and offered support to help my husband too. Both my husband I don’t think I could have had an non medicated birth without her. I will definitely hire her again when I get pregnant with my next child! I couldn’t have done it without her! Thank you!”
