I have always held a strong belief that pregnancy and birth are normal life events. Working with women and their families has confirmed for me that the childbearing journey is a spiritual, physical and emotional experience.
For more than a decade, I have been providing families in the Houston area with professional labor/birth doula services. In 2008, I began working as a midwifery assistant, and in 2015 began my training to become a midwife.
Over the past 22 years, I have dedicated a large part of my life caring for men, women, and children. I believe in empowering my clients through education and involving one in all aspects of their care.
As a midwife, I believe that women should be able to receive evidence based care in any setting, receive the information that they need to make informed choices and feel comfortable asking questions.
Bernadette is very knowledgeable about hormonal issues and treating them. She is the first provider I have been to in almost 10 years who is open-minded and listens well to any new information from her patients. She is very thorough, and manages to take the time to explain things to you when going over lab work if needed, even if she's juggling many tasks. She also is a very good listener.
As soon as Jaymee answered her phone, I knew IMMEDIATELY that I was going to put all my fears away and do a home birth. She was so soft spoken, patient, informative, knowledgeable it's ridiculous. I felt so empowered after I talked to her. It was the most satisfying and fulfilling moment in my life having such a blessing of a midwife by my side the entire way. The peace and serenity she brings to the birthing experience is one ALL moms should witness. Please, take my advice...call Jaymee, set up a consultation visit, and bring another beautiful life into this world. You won't regret it!
Melissa is professional, honest, reliable, thorough, funny, and kind. It is with the highest praise and respect that I recommend Melissa to any pregnant mama considering having baby in a more natural birthing environment.
