My name is Melissa. I am 27 years old and live in Washington DC. I was born and raised in Connecticut and moved to DC in 2010 to pursue a nanny career. I have worked in childcare for 10 years and I am now beginning my journey to become a birth doula. I have taken a DONA birth doula training course and intend to become certified as a postpartum doula. I believe an empowering, positive birth experience in important for new parents' confidence and for establishing a bond with a new baby. I am particularly passionate about helping low income families, young people, and LGBTQ+ individuals.
