MELLISA reeves




Co-founder & host

Laura is a labor and delivery nurse and childbirth doula who lives in Fort Worth, TX. She is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Nurse Midwifery.

I also got married and divorced before 30. This is a huge part of my life and story. How to grieve, live, hope and love again. LOVE WINS! I believe there is power in everyone's story and we all have something to learn from hearing and sharing our own.


Mellisa is a mother, writer, and birth junkie/doula. She lives in Portland, OR with her husband, 7 year old son and newborn daughter.

As a stillbirth and multiple-miscarriage survivor, I care deeply about the voices of those who have experienced loss and who also know there is more of their story yet to be told.


Through my work, my goal is to provide connection and support for women and their experiences of motherhood, focusing on issues such as birth choices, loss, anxiety & career balance.

I've always cared deeply about women expressing themselves fully and supporting them as they pursue their dreams. It was not until I saw my first birth I understood this was my calling.
