WHY CHOOSE BIRTH JOURNEY?
45+ YEARS EXPERIENCE
Midwife Melissa Mayo has over 30 years of experience ushering clients into the journey of parenthood. We are passionate about those we serve and take great pride in the many repeat clients that have chosen to birth with us over and over.
IN-HOME CARE OPTIONS
Birth Journey Midwifery offers a mobile care unit that travels all over the Salt Lake Valley bringing your prenatal appointments to you-- with lab draws, fetal monitoring, even ultrasound-- all in the comfort of your own home! A peaceful birth begins with stress-free, non-hurried prenatal care.
BIRTH YOUR WAY
We place great emphasis on a personalized birthing experience. You hold the reigns as we build a plan for your ideal birth. You will not hear the words "allow" or "prohibit" but instead gentle guidance and education. We honor your birth plan and your freedom to choose your course of care.
ACCESS TO ESSENTIAL TOOLS & ULTRASOUND
You don't have to forego high-tech tools when choosing midwife-led care. If you feel most comfortable with ultrasound and other monitoring, just ask! You'd prefer less exposure? That's okay too! We are committed to providing you with the information you need to make an educated decision on every procedure option.
Melissa and her support staff are devoted to providing respectful, nurturing care to you and each member of your family. Rest assured that we will work to find solutions that honor all of your goals, desires, and beliefs.
Melissa Mayo is an expert in normal, natural childbirth. She takes an evidence-based approach to midwifery with continuing education and training, peer-reviewed treatment, and a focus on prevention. She believes a midwife should be both hands-on with comfort measures and emotional support and hands-off with limited interventions and a respect for the unique process of birth.
We could not have loved our prenatal and birth experience more. Melissa Mayo is an incredible midwife who answered every single question no matter what time of day, and helped ease our baby girl into this world with a calm strength that I so needed and appreciated. We are about to have our second baby with Melissa by our side and are so glad she will be with us through this experience again. I can't imagine birth without her expert gentle hands.
Melissa is the most amazing soul. She was exactly what I needed for this birth and made it so fun and peaceful for me. I always felt she cherished and respected me and my kiddos. My boys were always involved in what was going on and we love her dearly.
People tend to not ask me a ton of questions about my home births because the idea freaks them out but the one I always get is, "Isn't it scary?" or "Weren't you scared?".
For me I could never feel more safe, comfortable, and at home than when I'm at home. It's the place where I rule the roost and make the calls. It smells like my family and is filled with joy. It's all those things that got me through my rock and hard place during labor. My husband is super supportive and loved being involved. His fondest memories are of catching our babies. So for me there never was any fear, just love.
Although the popularly desired outcome is ‘healthy mother, healthy baby,’ I think there is room in that equation for ‘happy, non-traumatized, empowered and elated mother and baby.'
