Melinda used acupuncture to fall pregnant with her second child. Through this experience and working with women as a Doula, she found many women had used Chinese medicine for general wellbeing, reproductive health, for pregnancy and labour. This lead Melinda into studying Chinese medicine, and then running her own clinic in Leichhardt. Melinda incorporates both acupuncture, acupressure and her experience as a Doula for the past 10 years to work with women during their pregnancy, supporting and coaching them through labour and birth. Melinda has also become a Birth mentor for other Doulas.
