We're delighted to introduce the newest member of the Birth team. Melissa Maimann is a practicing midwife who will answer new questions each week on trying to conceive, pregnancy, labour and birth and your newborn baby.
Melissa is a midwife with over 10 years experience who works at Essential Birth Consulting, offering a range of private midwifery care options including natural birth, waterbirth, homebirth, vaginal twin and vaginal breech births. Melissa is the first private midwife in Australia to combine her midwifery services with specialised obstetric care for a continuity of care.
If your query is urgent or health-specific you should contact your caregiver. Answers to your questions will be featured here on the Birth website. Due to the high volume of questions there can be no personal responses.
