Childbirth Education for
the Whole YOU!
Whole body education and wellness through pregnancy to postpartum. Inspiring you to create your healthiest body and birth possible.
Pregnancy changes so much more than your growing uterus. Your whole body, mind and 'being' becomes new. This transition can be made easier by creating community and gaining information and insights from those with birth wisdom around us. That's why Inspired Beginnings was born.
Inspired Beginnings' innovative design combines personalized movement, childbirth education and health experts into energizing and engaging classes. We've partnered with Early Bird Fitness (formerly Snohomish Fitness Center) to inspire birthing families to create healthier lifestyles and improving health outcomes for birth and beyond. These inclusive classes are an innovative way to learn about your pregnant body, birth, breast/chest feeding, postpartum recovery, healing and newborn care while creating a parenting community for support. They are fun, interactive and informative leaving you feeling empowered, confident and ready for your baby's birth day.
Our classes are in partnership with Early Bird Coaching and their experienced Prenatal Fitness Trainers.
Classes run Wednesday evenings from 6-8:30pm in the large group fitness room where there is space to spread out and learn together.

Melissa's passion for serving expectant families began in 2005 just after her son was born. She has a bachelor's degree from the University of Washington in Speech and Hearing Sciences which gives her a unique approach to feeding, and latch in particular. However, after giving birth she realized how preparation and information brought an increase in comfort and confidence during labor. Experiencing this personally, it drove her to ensure that all expectant parents have access to high-quality childbirth education.
She received certification from the International Childbirth Education Association. She is also Lactation Education Certified and is a Trauma-Informed Educator through the Simkin Center at Bastyr in Seattle. She is dedicated to serving all birthing families in our local community and honors the unique perspectives, experience and personal desires of each birthing person. Our individuality is precious and meant to be honored.
