My name is Melissa Bailey and I am a DONA International trained Doula. I am an all inclusive Doula and serve families primarily throughout Durham, Raleigh, Apex, Cary, Hillsborough and Fayetteville areas. I have been a Doula for over 10 years and have attended well over 400 births. Being that support person while a child or children are birthed into the world is one of the most amazing things! Birth is my passion. It feeds my soul!

Having a solid support system surrounding you during pregnancy, labor and postpartum is so important. I provide unwavering encouragement, support, and guidance throughout your pregnancy, birth & postpartum. I am there to support the laboring person as well as their partner and family because what many don’t realize is that the partners have a birth experience that they have within them too and I want to help facilitate that so that everyone is left looking back at the birth and smiling!

Specializing in VBAC’s (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean), LGBTQ+ Births, Plus Size Births, Multiples Births, First Time Births, Natural/Un-Medicated Births as well as Medicated Births and Water Births. I have a plethora of experience attending births in a Hospital, Birthing Center and Home Birth setting. Also offering pain & comfort support through using Rebozo Techniques, Acupressure and Massage.
