What My Clients Say

I heard, seen and supported every single postnatal visit with Melissa. I felt like Melissa had no other obligation or care in the world except for my well-being. What a gift!

Maria mother to three

Melissa was a huge source of love and comfort for me. When my first child was born I was anxious, and she had a way of making me feel comforted that was otherworldly. She is magical. Her presence at the births of my first, second, and my third babies was transformative and helped me feel safe and empowered and ready to meet my babies.

Drew W. mother of three

This company has helped me to sort out issues with PMS, explanations of why things are happening as they do, and natural remedies to help balance symptoms of these issues. I believe every woman should have this kind of support and knowledge. I would highly recommend this company to anyone in need of understanding their bodies in a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. Thanks a million!!

The Best Option for Our Family

“Everyone has different comfort levels, and this arrangement turned out to be the best option for our family.” Jennifer is a farmer, a nature-school teacher and a home birth mother of 2. She shares how she came to home birth after carefully weighing her options. “To me Hospitals were always a place to go when you are seriously hurt and needed help. Thats’ what they are so good at, so why exactly did I have to birth my child none if I was healthy? I was never afraid of going to hospital if I actually needed medical intervention but I was extremely fearful of voluntarily going to the hospital to give birth, something that to me didn’t seem like a medical procedure and more of a life event. I also was fully aware that woman have been doing this since the beginning of time with and without any help. One thing that happened while pregnant and navigating the decision making process of what is right for my family,was that I learned about how fear can actually stop labor or slow it down, its kind of cool actually a relic from our caveman days, its a biological protection mechanism so if your in the woods giving birth and that mountain line shows up, you can temporarily stop laboring to get away, or something to that effect. And that bit of information was huge for me in finally making the decision to have my child at home with a midwife.What would it mean for me and my unborn baby if I was in the hospital paralyzed by fear? I realized that for birth to go forward as smoothly as possible the mother must be comfortable, and ready to fully let go to the process, a process that we know, that is in us, that has always been in us. And I knew that of me, In a hospital setting that would be next to impossible. Lucky for me I have a very supportive husband and family that despite any differences of opinion, did not pressure me in making this decision. Like I mentioned earlier, I did however feel that there was a value in the hospital and I was willing to have my child in a hospital if It turned out that that was safer for me and my child. So we found a Gynecologist that we really trusted has my and […]

Hospital Birth and Home Birth: Why Birth Bliss Is For Everyone

Home birth or hospital birth. The choice can be so different. We can feel so strongly about what we value, and know exactly what we want. On the other side of the coin, we know exactly what we don’t want. Sometimes, it can feel like we make each other wrong for choosing something different.

Home Birth Meant I was the most important person in the room

“The best experience in my life was having a home birth with my second child. The love for both my kids is the same of course but with my first birth I was in a hospital environment and they tried to control it all. Had it not been for my doctor knowing that I REALLY wanted a vaginal birth and telling the nurses to back off, nurses who were
