About Me

Hi, I’m Melissa, your doula and birth educator


I know exactly how daunting it can feel facing into the uncertainty and unknowing-ness of childbirth and parenthood.


I have two little ones myself, and before my first birth I can honestly say I had no idea of the true power of my body and the depth that the experience of giving birth could bring.


I also had no idea how much pressure it placed on women to have birth experiences that “tick all the boxes”.


I believe that all births can be beautiful. And that a positive birth experience is less about how it looks on paper and more about how it feels for the people involved.


And I’m on a mission to help women have incredible birth experiences that are free from judgement and fear. 


Hearing a women and her partner say “I can do this”, seeing the sparkle and determination in their eyes and knowing they really mean it is an honour and a privilege.


My childbirth education, birth doula and postnatal support services are all about helping parents have the empowerment and support to trust their instincts and make confident choices.


And I’d be honoured to help you.


"We can’t thank Melissa enough for her support and all of the amazing information she taught us. Melissa has such a clear and positive way of educating and there wasn’t any questions too silly or weird she wouldn’t answer!" - Danielle and Dave

I would like to acknowledge the land on which I reside and work is the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri and Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation and I pay my respects to elders past, present and future. I also acknowledge that their cultural and spiritual connection to land are still as important to the Wurundjeri and Bunurong people today.
