Brittany Klingmann

Orthopedic physical therapist with special interest in Pelvic Health. I am a Mom of 2, and engage in an active lifestyle. My personal postpartum recovery and participation in high impact and strength sports including CrossFit and Weightlifting has inspired me to help bridge the gap for postpartum women. Providing education to the gym owners/coaches/personal trainers is an asset moving towards improving awareness and support for women. MPT, BSc Kin, CAFCI, CF-L1

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.
