"It's hard to know where to start because words can't explain the wonderful experience I had with Rophe. But I will try my best. Rophe is a person full energy, positivty and light. A light to her that brightens up a room. My labor and delivery went totally opposite of what we spoke about which in reality is just apart of the journey. We can't expect the plan to go just as planned. And Rophe was there the whole way. She reminded me of my strength, power and encouraged me to remain positive. She pointed out the parts that I did accomplish as part of my plan to help keep me going after 36 hours of labor that resulted in a csection. I don't know how to thank her enough for all she did from the time our partnership started and beyond. Always responsive and attentive to all my questions and concerns.
I am so happy and blessed to have had her as my doula. " - Sam, Stoughton MA
"I had the absolute best, most amazing, birth experience with Melissa. Herself and Rophe were so helpful in all things pregnancy + postpartum. Whatever you may need, they are equipped and ready with referrals and great advice. Everything is run like a well oiled machine, from detailed birth preferences ..to back up doula plans incase of emergency.. and everything in between. I had a long labor, but the entire time I felt so comfortable and so capable, having Melissa by my side. I also had Melissa photograph my birth- which is an amazing addition to a doulas services. I truly don't know how anyone goes through labor without a doula- hiring her was the best thing I did for myself this pregnancy." - The Heinrichs, Weymouth MA
“Meeting over zoom to make our birth plan was so helpful. We were asked thoughtful questions that helped us figure out what we truly want and need when it comes to labor and delivery. We appreciated the attentive ear and how our desires were translated onto a document for us all ready to print for the hospital! Great service!!” - The Arnolds, Portland OR
"It was wonderful having Melissa there to capture our birth. She has a way of keeping the peace of the space & melting into the room. Melissa offers support & reassurance from behind the lens. Those photos are amongst the most treasured I own." - Alexa, Boston MA
"During my labor Rophe's ability to hear me & adjust to what she heard was so comforting. Through the entire labor, which was 16 hours, I felt known by my birth team. Rophe was willing to help comfort me in so many ways - both physical and emotional! At every point I felt heard and known by the team. That brought me so much comfort in birthing my first child" -A.W., Scituate MA
"We used Eden Birth Services for their virtual support as we prepared for the delivery of our first child, who has special needs. Each question we had was answered quickly. We were encouraged to educate ourselves on our options, and the right questions to ask when making decisions for our birth and daughter's care. We felt the emotional support through each text & phone call" -The Wehmans, Hartford CT
"My husband and I were so grateful for Eden Birth Services and their expertise these past few weeks! We are due in February, and we had the privilege of consulting with Rophe. She not only created a birth plan for us, but she also provided us with resources to help us make informed decisions about aspects of birth we hadn't considered. She was supportive of all our decisions, informative in answering any questions we had, and above all, she didn't push her ideal birth plan on us! She helped us create the one that worked best for our family. Walking away from our conversation with her, I feel more confident as a future mom and ready for this next phase of life. I would encourage anyone to work with Rophe and Eden Birth Services. You will absolutely feel more prepared and empowered for birth!" - The Wakens, Atlanta GA
