Welcome to Blissful Births and Babies with Melissa!
I have a supportive, non-judgmental approach to birth. I became a doula to support women and their families in making their own choices about their birthing experiences—whether that means a totally un-medicated birth or a prescheduled Caesarean section. I believe that a woman should have the birth she wants. As a doula, I will not judge your choices. I’m there to support you in making the best decision for you, your baby, and your family. I am sensitive to the fact that by hiring me as your doula you’re letting me in on one of the most intimate and personal experiences of your life. I will work with you and your partner to envision your ideal birth experience. We can write a birth plan together or I am happy to follow one you have already prepared. I am also there to provide support and guidance in outlining alternatives if a change to your birthing prefrences becomes the best option for you.
I have attended Birth Arts and received my Birth Doula certificate in 2013 and have helped my clients prepare for labor, delivery, and early parenthood. I love being part of the journey!
I want you to feel empowered to have the birth you have always wanted. I also want you to be prepared for the various challenges that labor and delivery (and hospital protocol and provider bias) can bring.
To make sure I am a good match for you, I offer a free 1 hour consultation.
