Meet Melanie! Her fascination with birth began when she was in the womb. You see, her mom was an OBGYN so some of her very first memories include looking at medical text books and flipping through Our Bodies, Ourselves. She had no interest in pursuing a medical career, so this passion was pushed to the back of her mind for many years. She grew up in NYC on the Upper East Side and eventually found herself working in advertising for companies like VICE Media and YouTube. Completely burnt out and searching for deeper meaning, she moved to LA on a whim, where after taking only one class, she magically landed in Kundalini Yoga teacher training. The yogic science and nutrition completely transformed her being physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Naturally, she craved more information and it was a surprise to no one when she decided to enroll in prenatal yoga teacher training. It was during this time that she fell in love with working with women holistically - educating their minds and bodies to function optimally. Melanie’s curiosity expanded and she wanted to know how to better support birth partners and the whole family during this transition time. Since then it has been a natural progression of ongoing expansion by learning about nourishing Ayurvedic foods, crystal sound alchemy as well as completing her birth doula, postpartum doula, and childbirth education trainings. It is her absolute pleasure to serve and guide both women and families along this transformative journey. She is currently based in Santa Monica, where she is continuously and consciously deepening her knowledge, tools, and skills.
