As a mother who had her first baby in the hospital and second as a home birth, I definitely would recommend home birth!
Melissa is an excellent midwife; from the moment I met her I felt comfortable and well cared for. She is knowledgeable and flexible,
and family-oriented. I loved that I could bring my toddler son to my appointments and that he could participate in hearing the heartbeat
of his little sister.
I also was very impressed by Melissa's knowledge of herbs, as I am always looking to go the natural route when it comes to health and wellness.
During labor, Melissa was calm and respectful of me as a person, not just a "patient". I knew she truly had my best interest in mind and the health of my baby.
Postpartum care was incredible! I could call her if I had any questions, concerns about nursing, baby, etc. and she checked in on me regularly just to make sure everything was going well. I definitely recommend Melissa to anyone who is looking to have a home birth!
