I started to see Melanie at around 28 weeks pregnant in my second pregnancy while suffering with some painful SPD. After explaining my traumatic first birth which resulted in a forceps delivery, Melanie not only worked to realign my pelvis (ridding me totally of the SPD pain within around 3 treatments!) but managed to maintain a good alignment for the remainder of my pregnancy. I was anxious about my baby being back to back and so wanted to give my pelvis the best chance and baby the greatest space. Not only did Melanie support my physical preparations, but she provided enormous support emotionally while I prepared for birth, advising me about hypnobirthing , recommending a doula, lending me reading materials from her small library, and most importantly reminding me of my body’s natural ability to birth. Unfortunately I went past 42 weeks of pregnancy and took the difficult decision to be induced, saying goodbye to my home birth dream. I used Melanie’s recommended doula and ended up having the natural, drug free birth I wanted, delivering a 10lb11 baby girl with just some gas and air at the end! She was in the perfect position and, along with my hypnobirthing skills, that made the vast majority of my labour perfectly manageable. I would recommend Melanie to anyone wanting to support their body to ‘do its thing’ during pregnancy and birth, it was the best money I spent on pregnancy care and I am so grateful. Melanie was also absolutely wonderful with my 2 year old toddler, and made a real fuss of him on every visit: she is well equipped with toys and stickers to keep little ones entertained! More...

I’ve been going to Melanie now for around 18 months, maybe longer and she is fantastic! She has improved my movement dramatically and is a pleasure to see. I would highly recommend Melanie and wouldn’t go anywhere else. More...

Without the excellent care I have had from Mel, I would have been bed bound with severe SPD at 24 weeks pregnant. The progress, support and commitment in keeping me mobile has been incredible and I am so very grateful for your care and positive outlook. A million thank you's!
Melanie is a Fantastic chiropractor! Fitted me in last minute. Definitely use her again.
My family and I feel 100% safe in Mel’s hands. She is knowledgeable, caring, and has a great sense of humour too! She is a wonderful chiropractor and we would highly recommend her.
Mel was able to get to source of my problems after one visit, and recommends a course of exercises and adjustments that keep the problem in check.
Mel has been amazing. My previous pregnancy resulted in an unplanned c-section and I had pelvic issues throughout the pregnancy and also post. My baby was also 2 weeks overdue. With my second pregnancy I started to visit Mel not expecting to see significant changes but was stunned to find myself feeling better than ever. I also had a transverse baby that Mel successfully managed to turn with ease. I had no pelvic issues and to my delight I got the natural delivery I always wanted. I firmly believe Mel contributed to my good health and can’t recommend her enough.
My only issue is I’d love to see her everyday as I always feel amazing after she’s adjusted me!!
Honestly, my advice, even if you’re not sure, just go for one adjustment and you’ll never look back! More...
