Melissa Strong, Birth Doula
I’ve always known that to provide care for others brought me immense joy. After finding my path as a Doula, I am reminded daily of my passion to be working with amazing women to bring their miracles into the world.
Over the years, I have always worked with and gravitated towards children, however, after the birth of my Daughter Tallulah in 2009, it became clear that I wanted a more hands on role for creating the foundation in which women become mothers. After completing my training through DONA International, I have been fortunate enough to begin my career working with women and their families to have an empowered birth experience. I love advocating for ANY choices a mother and her partner make to welcome their baby into this world. I love the diversity London offers from hospital births, homebirths, Midwives and Obstetricians. There are so many ways to bring a baby into the world, and I am lucky enough to be a part of it, providing support, encouragement, comfort techniques, advocacy and partner inclusion.
My philosophy is: “Your Body, Your Birth, Your Baby”. My goal is making the childbirth event a wonderful experience!
