Stacey Bergin-Melito ICCE, CD(DONA) has been educating and supporting families through birth since 2001. Her interest in childbirth began during her own pregnancy and has continued ever since. Over the years, Stacey has trained and certified with international organizations including, ICEA (International Childbirth Educators Association), DONA (Doulas of North America). Independently and in the hospital setting, Stacey has taught and supported more than fifteen hundred couples on varying aspects of birth, instilling confidence and knowledge in both new and experienced parents as they navigate the myriad of choices faced during pregnancy and childbirth. With more than a decade of experience, Stacey has developed a passion for working with expecting families and those struggling with infertility.
