About The Instructor:

Melissa Dessaulles is a pelvic health physical therapist and founder of Mommy Berries.

Melissa is a mom of 2 who enjoys an active lifestyle. 

Through my own postpartum journey, she recognized the lack of support and guidance for new moms. 

Women everywhere are experiencing life changing, sometimes embarrassing symptoms, that are not discussed. 

She have a passion to educate and advocate for proactive rather than reactive pelvic floor health care.  

She 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.
