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.

Baby Laura

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.
