You can love your birth
You’re probably here because you already have an idea about how you want your birth to go. And you might be feeling worried about how you’ll manage the pain or anxious about what happens if things don’t go to plan.
I’m here to help you feel supported and informed. And to equip you with the practical tools and techniques to give you the best chance at the birth you want.
So that you feel calm, confident and in control as you bring your baby into the world and navigate through the early days of parenthood.
"I loved the course. I would highly recommend to everyone and anyone to invest in doing this. I learnt a lot more than I thought I would about birth and the human body and what we really are capable of. The course also educated my partner and made him so much more comfortable going in to the birth and knowing how to support me and what to expect." - Kathy
There’s something else I want you to know.
You can love your birth no matter what it looks like.
You can love your birth whether it’s at home OR in a hospital.
You can love your birth whether it goes for 2 hour OR 2 days.
You can love your birth whether it’s completely natural OR it’s assisted with pain relief and other interventions.
Because loving your birth isn’t about ticking the boxes or having a textbook perfect experience.
Loving your birth is about having the confidence, autonomy and support to make the right decisions for you, your body and your baby.
Loving your birth is about being educated and informed so you can manage the intensity your birth and feel engaged in the experience.
Loving your birth is about knowing and trusting that your body is perfectly equipped to bring your bub into this world.
Let's cut through the noise of what birthing and parenting your baby should look like. So you can listen to your instincts and have the confidence to make informed choices — during birth and beyond.
"Thanks again for all your help. The midwife's and my obstetrician actually said they used to bring in mums for the prenatal classes who 'smashed their labour' and they said if they still did it I would totally be one of those guest speakers as I just trusted my body and went with it." - Simone
I’m Melissa, your Birth Bestie.
Having two little ones myself, I know exactly how daunting it can feel facing into the uncertainty and unknowing-ness of childbirth and parenthood.
Before my first birth I can honestly say I had no idea of the true power of my body and the depth of experience that giving birth brings.
I also had no idea how much pressure is placed on women to have birth experiences that “tick all the boxes”.

"I must say the techniques I have learnt in the lesson have been helping me a lot to cope with a stressful situation which I was prepared for but nonetheless stressful... I can’t tell you how useful this class has been for me." - Sunita
