"Mel's ability to sense what I needed before I had to ask was incredible. Whilst I was in labour, I often forgot that she was there, but when I needed something, she was immediately at my side. When my birth plan changed (as these things can do!), Mel's presence was by far the most reassuring thing, and she didn't hesitate to change her plans to ensure she could be there for me.
As a doula, Mel wasn't just there for me but she supported our whole family to have a truly empowered birth experience."
