Hello! 

Welcome to Modern Roots Birth and Mothering! I am so happy you are here!

My name is Melanie and I am the proud owner of Modern Roots Birth and Mothering. I am mama to my two beautiful, and wild souled children, Birth and Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Educator Counselor, Birth Story Listener, Peristeam Hydrotherapist, and Intuitive Mothering Coach. I have training with DONA International, Birthing From Within®, and Spinning Babies® organizations. My vision for this community continues growing as I travel my own mothering path. I have paid close attention to the wisdom and practices that have nurtured my body, mind, and spirit and now offer this knowledge to my sisters (YOU!) as you embark on the journey of welcoming a child (or two or three!). This community is a blend of the sweetest things, from incredible support of wise women, ancient healing practices that tap into your own knowledge and power to heal, bodywork, coaching, herbs, and nourishing foods. These offerings are the ESSENTIAL ingredients in order for a woman to mother from a place of overabundance versus a place of depletion. When you are nurtured then you are able to nurture your family. Our offerings are tailored to support you on your journey. When I say your journey, I mean how you define it. So often mamas feel judged by others. I want you to know that I understand we are all walking our own paths and what works for one woman may not necessarily serve another. And that is okay! That is beautiful. As we validate the universal experience of being a mother, we also join together, as women, to support and celebrate the differences that make this your journey. I am so excited to connect with you! Blessings.
