She is a doula.
She is not a friend. She is not a healthcare provider. She is a mother figure of the most ancient kind. Her life experience empowers you. She is a reassuring presence who will always listen to you and support you in your chosen path. She will remind you of those choices, and the reason you made them, when you doubt, are anxious, or afraid. She sees you; the real you. Her understanding of your journey supports your self-confidence. She eases pain with a touch, a word, a look…. She is a doula.

She was our rock.
"Melanie was there for us in so many ways and continued to follow up months after my delivery. I highly recommend Melanie if you are looking for a doula who is compassionate and caring, while also being strong and confident. "
I felt the passion and love.
"When it came to making decisions, Melanie would take the time to better explain my options when they would leave. I honestly believe I would have ended in a C Section if it wasn't for the clarification and the time Melanie took to explain my options."
Her confident, peaceful energy stood out from the rest.
“ She listens intently and asks questions to ensure that she understands you, your fears, and your needs.”
Ancient Wisdom. Modern Support.
