Melissa Haskins

Certified Postpartum Doula
"I have a heart for nurturing every kind of family as they navigate the first tender days, weeks, and months of their parenting journey!” Lactation support | specialized in multiples and more, but love singletons too!
Following my heart's calling, I ventured into becoming a certified postpartum doula in 2005. It was a natural progression from my passion for birth support, and I discovered my true calling in providing families with much-needed nurturing and invaluable resources after they brought their precious baby/ies home. Seeing these families thrive and flourish with the essential care and support they received has become the central focus of my doula practice.
The journey of new parenthood is a momentous and tender time, filled with both excitement and uncertainty. As a doula, I feel deeply honored to care for these new families as they navigate their way into their roles as parents. I see myself as a guiding presence, offering unwavering support, reassurance, and a listening ear whenever needed. Witnessing the strength and resilience of these families as they embrace their new responsibilities brings me immense joy and fulfillment.
Supporting and nurturing families is not just a job for me; it is a true passion, a calling that fills my heart with gratitude and purpose. I take great pride in being a part of their journeys and being a pillar of support during such a profound and transformative time. Every family I have the privilege of assisting holds a special place in my heart, and I am committed to making their transition into parenthood as smooth and joyful as possible.
Being a doula has given me the opportunity to witness the beauty of new life, the strength of families, and the power of love that surrounds the birth of a child.

It is an honor beyond words, and I am incredibly proud to be a part of this sacred journey with each and every family I have the pleasure of serving. My heart is forever filled with gratitude for the gift of being a doula and making a positive impact on the lives of these wonderful families.
