Transform Your Experience of Birth & Parenthood
with this 12-Week course

I strongly believe that every woman should have the information, and be supported in their decisions, to experience birth and motherhood in a way that they choose. My mission is to support women, and advocate their individual decisions on what they feel is best for them, and their families, based on their personal circumstances and the information available.

Mel is extremely knowledgeable in all things related to pregnancy, childbirth, and caring for your newborn. She educates, empowers and supports, and becomes a true companion in the journey through motherhood. 

Robyn de Klerk

I truly believe [Mel] played a massive part in helping me have one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It was just incredible and I don’t think that would have been possible without you. Your work is amazing – THANK YOU!!

Chloe Fletcher

I cannot recommend Mel highly enough. She enabled us to have the most positive birth after having had a previously traumatic experience. Mel is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and committed. 

Angela Holmes

She was fantastic. She was so kind and full of knowledge on how I could achieve the kind of labour that I wanted. It went exactly to plan and not many women can say that. I have no doubt that this was due to Mel’s techniques with me during early labour. She taught me exercises to ensure that the baby’s head was in a good position for a swift, uncomplicated labour. Mel has a very warm personality and is extremely caring. 

Jo Richardson

At about 7 weeks I started to find breastfeeding really painful with sore nipples. I knew I wanted to continue but it was getting increasingly hard. I turned to Mel who immediately provided invaluable practical advice and reassurance. Mel was proactive, confident in her advice and importantly kind and supportive. With her help I got through the tough patch and continued breastfeeding for 18 months which my son and I loved. I don’t know where I would have turned to without her.

Holly Richardson

Having a prem baby and being unable to breastfeed her for 2 months was the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. Having lived in the hospital for one of those months and constantly being told what to do by doctors and midwives, stripped me of my confidence as a mom and a person. We were so lucky that Melody became a part of our family’s journey just before I wanted to give up. Her knowledge is so extensive on everything “birth and beyond”, that if something wasn’t working for us, she could always offer an alternative that suited our needs and values. With Melody’s awareness of the massive emotional journey motherhood is, her support and guidance allowed me to gain my power back as an instinctive mother. It takes a special person to do what she does. If you have the option to have her be part of your new family’s story… don’t hesitate to reach out to her.

Nina Kay

This All Sounds Great But…

What if the programme isn’t for me?

If you attend & engage in the first 14 days of the programme & don’t feel that it’s quite the right fit for you, we will offer you a 50% refund

What if I can’t afford it?

We believe strongly that finances should never be a barrier to the ability to access the information & support you need to feel fully empowered in your journey of Birth & Beyond.  Please contact us directly at hello@allthingsbirthandbeyond.co.uk so that we can find a way that works for everyone.

Will my information be protected in a group setting?

Absolutely!  The utmost care is taken to protect your information & privacy during the 12 week programme & beyond.

What if I need more help?

You will be provided with three 1:1 consultations & have the support of your online community.  Should you feel that you need more help, we will absolutely sign-post you to further support or alternatively you have the option of booking a further 1:1 for personalised 1:1 support at a time that suits you.

What if I don’t have a lot of time & fall behind in the modules?

Over the 12-week programme, there are 6 modules to cover.  Essentially we cover a module in one week and engage in a Q&A the following week.  This will provide you with plenty of time to stay on top of the information & engage in the group chat as & where you can.
