Mel’s class is fun, information packed and was easy to fit the course into my busy schedule. I love that I can watch at my own pace, print the notes and review the lessons whenever I need a refresher. I feel like I am able to offer even better support to my birth and postpartum clients since I’ve taken her course. Thanks Mel! Elise Ruel Elise Ruel Doula Services

The Teacher

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.
