Compassionate Doula Services
I am a certified birth doula. As a doula I provide my clients with physical and emotional support during pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum to help her achieve her birth goals. I want all of my doula clients to own their birth and feel in control of making educated decisions regarding her care.
It's nice to meet you.
Hi! I'm Melissa the photographer and doula behind Melissa Attlee - Photography & Birth services. I am a wife, mother of 4, and Marine Corps Veteran.
In the Marine Corps I was a photojournalist, which sparked my love for photography. I served from 2007-2016 and photographed Operation Iraqi Freedom up close and personal. It may seem odd, that my photography specialty now revolves mainly around growing families, newborns and birth. ;) but that is where my journey has brought me.
While pregnant with my youngest in 2015, I discovered my passion for empowering women to have the birth they desire and deserve. While preparing for a natural water birth, I heard story after story of women who were victims in their own birth stories - sometimes unknowingly so. Since then, I've advocated for education, owning your birth and knowing your choices. This inspired me to become a certified doula to help change the stigmas related to childbirth.
