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 kinder 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.

*COVID-19 Response*

We are still here for all of our current and future clients and have adjusted our services accordingly, providing remote prenatal visits, classes and virtual doula support customized to meet your needs. 

Once restrictions are lifted we will resume our regular in-person support.

In the meantime, however, you and your partner need us now more than ever to inform you on current restrictions, calm your fears, and to empower you both to know that you can do this (even without us there in person – if not allowed at the time you give birth).  We will still have your back and provide you with the care and support you need every step of the way.  You don’t have to do this alone!

When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted a doula to help my husband and I through the pregnancy and delivery of our first baby. We met with Melissa and felt completely at ease about having her with us on this journey. Melissa has a contagious love for life and her dedication to helping us as expecting / new parents far exceeded our expectations. Both my husband and I could tell that in the time spent with her, she was very experienced and passionate in her profession. Her presence during my labor and delivery was calming, confident and exactly what we needed. Her communication with the doctors, nurses, as well as our excited family members was always professional and kind. 

As we plan to grow our family in the future, we will be reaching out to Melissa again.

Melissa is truly amazing!! She kept me calm through out my pregnancy and my labour. She did not push her views she just supported all my decisions and gave me all the info I needed and really helped me make the right choices for me so I had my dream labour and delivery even though it was 70 hours. She stayed in contact even during the times she went home to rest. If you are looking for a doula she is totally the one for you. The doctors and nurses loved her and i adored her!!!!
