Melissa has a true gift for being a doula. My husband and I were very pro natural birth, but we knew we also were going to be in a hospital setting. I could have never stuck to my birth plan without Melissa. For over 12 hours she stood by my side. She never sat down. She never took a break. She had me constantly changing positions to try to be more comfortable. She guided me constantly and was literally invaluable to me as a coach throughout my pregnancy. She truly shined in that delivery room and I am so grateful to have met her. Sara G.
I am available for you anytime!
ABOUT Melissa Cook
I am living a dream. After many years spent leading teams, I walked away in search of something new, something different, something that matters more than profit and loss statements and pandering to corporate figureheads (no offense if you are one). I wanted to do something that would make an impact on people. I was led into birth work through this quest and I could not be happier to serve women and their families. Now I spend my time with people during one of the most transformative times in their life. I still work long and unpredictable hours and I often put my life on hold to be present for someone else, but the rewards are far more giving than the giving that is required of me. I am blessed and humbled to support you through your pregnancy and the birth of your baby, and as you navigate the pathways of new parenthood.
I am a mother, grandmother, wife, and friend. I have four beautiful children, Stacy, Lucas, Amber and Sharon. My husband Stephen owns SDCook Home Remodeling, LLC here in Chester County and we are members of Trinity Assembly Of God Church in West Chester. We relocated to southeastern Pennsylvania 9 years ago, and I am thankful to call this area home now. I have been in the field of birth work since 2014, I began doing business as Mother Me the next year. I hope to get to meet you and your family, and I hope that you will be blessed by my business and the people you meet here.
