About Us


Hey there! It’s me, Melissa!! I am the founder and lover of Little Bird Flies.  I am a registered Nurse/Midwife, certified birth and post-partum Doula and Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner.  I am a birthkeeper, mentor and Optimal Maternal Positions (OMP) Ambassador.  I live and breathe birth, the nurturing of women- helping you to rediscover your truest self- one filled with confidence and power.  Every woman has the capacity to be a badass birthing Goddess it just takes a little breath, a little unravelling and a little love.

I am a childbirth educator, I teach Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth program to women, birthing individuals and their birth partners from all over Melbourne and Australia wide.  I teach the Positive Birth Course because it provides you with the knowledge, tools, techniques and support to allow you to create your very own birth story, one that is empowering and filled with joy.  I am a big advocate of creating and maintaining a safe space for mum to labour in- this space requires her birth support partner and team to protect it with all their might, to be able to ask questions, advocate and listen closely.

I have over 15 years of experience working with mothers and parents at every stage of child growth and 8 years in Australia’s Maternity system as a nurse/ midwife.  With a background in integrative and holistic health practices as well as breathwork and nervous system regulation, it is such a privilege to be able to work with women on their journey to motherhood and meeting them at whatever stage they are at.  Childbirth is the beginning of a transformation like no other.  It sees you in your rawest form, in your ultimate power and I am here to help you do this.  To help you to rediscover your inner warrior and birthing goddess.  I am here to help you to surrender and to bare your birthing roar, whether that be through one of my Positive Birth classes, as your birth or post-partum doula or just through a one-off chat or consult to nut out all your pregnancy, birth and postpartum questions.
