What people are saying

  • Abigail S. (Doula)

    "I loved it! This is absolutely a course that needs to be offered. Not having a c-section myself, it can be a struggle to connect those dots for my doula clients and childbirth education students who are planning a scheduled section. This was full of great info to help fill in those missing pieces."

  • Joanne H.

    "I am glad I have the info to understand what my body went through and many ideas I wish I had known in hindsight."

  • Beth P.

    "I delivered my first through an emergency c-section at 34 weeks, but was not feeling prepared to deliver my second through a planned c-section. Both my husband and I watched the session and found it very helpful. We are both now feeling more at ease and as ready as we can be. Thank you!!"

  • Marci S.

    "The C-section webinar given by Mommy Berries was excellent. It was interesting and informative, and so absolutely necessary for any women to hear after having this procedure. I recommend it to any woman who has lingering questions about how to fully recover from this procedure."

Instructor

Melissa Dessaulles

Hi my name is Melissa Dessaulles. I am a pelvic health physical therapist and founder of Mommy Berries. I’m a mom of 2 who enjoys an active lifestyle. Through my own postpartum journey, I recognized the lack of support and guidance for new moms. Women everywhere are experiencing life changing, sometimes embarrassing symptoms, that are not discussed. I have a passion to educate and advocate for proactive rather than reactive pelvic floor health care. I believe that by acknowledging the pelvic floor’s role in childbirth and providing client-centred rehabilitation, women can come out feeling empowered. You can find me in person at Wave Physiotherapy in Kelowna, Canada and on social media @mommyberrieshealth.
