Project Description

Infertility is defined as the inability to become or stay pregnant for one year or more, or six months if the person is over 35. One in six couples experience infertility. Many couples end up at fertility clinics and undergo emotionally and physically straining treatments ofter at a very high cost. This can be a very stressful time.

As a fertility doula, I work one-on-one with clients and help them navigate the world of infertility.

I may attend fertility doctor visits, work with clients to find alternative care options to improve fertility, reduce depression and help balance emotions.

I also provide clients with education and a working understanding of fertility testing, treatment options and diagnosis.

Similar to a birth doula, I provide unbiased support and assist you on this journey without judgement.

I am your go-to guide for if you’re looking to get pregnant or contemplating different ways to conceive. I act as a sounding board, confidante, advocate, research partner and emotional rock.

I can help you understand and select from the many options to enhance your fertility and help you understand the medical, alternative and non-medical options.

I act as an interpreter of the new medical language you will learn.  I cannot give you medical advice, but I can help you with background research, talk through options with you and make sure you are empowered with the right questions to ask.

“I wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for all your yoga guidance during my pregnancy. I very much enjoyed the class each week and believe it helped me relax and prepare for labour and delivery. Our little girl was born on her due date. Happy, healthy and adorable.”

“Thanks for everything Melissa, you helped get my body and mind ready for this! I was very calm and breathing and visualization really helped.”

“My weekly prenatal yoga classes with Melissa helped me so much to relax and to get my body prepared for the big day. During labour my daughter came into distress at some point. I was able to relax my mind and body with techniques that Melissa taught me – and it worked! I delivered the most beautiful girl calmly and it was the most amazing experience. I’d recommend prenatal yoga to all women.”
