Melissa helped me prepare for birth by diagnosing my posture, alignment issues and strengthening my core and pelvic muscle. The difference was radical! I had no sciatic pain, and Melissa helped me actively isolate and work out the "tight" areas as the pregnancy progressed. I was able to deliver my 2nd baby naturally with no tearing and recovery was almost immediate. This was a transformative experience for me. There is no substitute for specialized training and experience and Melissa was able to help me get to exactly the normal, healthy, and confident birth experience I envisioned. Highly recommended!!
