Welcome

My name is Milly Friedman. I have been a Personal Fitness Trainer, Nutrition Coach and Business Owner for over 11 years. I have always been an advocate for woman’s strength. As a Momma to my active preschooler Adeline Mae, I have experienced the transition of Motherhood, one of life’s greatest adventures. Becoming a Doula has allowed me to follow my passion to serve women through this great triumph of their lives, Pregnancy and Childbirth. Beginning at baby’s conception a woman begins to experience her body in an beautiful, incomprehensible way. Each pregnancy and birth has its own unique circumstance and individualised experience. My knowledge of anatomy and physiology allows me to support them through their transformation with consistent, continuous physical and emotional support.

How a Person experiences birth matters.

Melissa was a dream come true for my husband and I. When we met her for a meet and greet we instantly connected as if we’d known each other for a long time. She provided so much ease, comfort and calmness throughout our process. She is very organized, personable and truly cares about your concerns and needs. My husband and I felt so prepared and supported throughout my pregnancy. It was SO reassuring to have someone to call during labor to guide me through until the hospital, and then swoop in and take control of everything around me so my husband and I could be present together for the arrival of our baby. I truly believe my labour was such a peaceful and empowering experience because of having her by my side. She continued to be there for us after our son was born and would answer phone calls from me crying and overwhelmed at 3am with an upset baby. Having a doula was the best experience and I recommend Melissa to every mom I meet! She is phenominal at what she does!

Melissa is amazing!! even 2 months after birth she still there for me even through text or call!! She is very down to earth and amazing human, she not only does her job exceptional of being there the whole 2 days of labour but she makes sure mom n dad are healthy mentally & physically raising baby whether it’s for feedings, ways of reducing stress and just overall helping to improve your lifestyle. She makes you grow into a better human being which is astonishing way more than a doula, she is passionate about babies and your family, she is the best and I wouldn’t want to change my birth any other way!
