Wellness for all women

Meet MelissaClasses & Services

Welcome to Life Cycles

Hi, I’m Melissa Dorr – a midwife, naturopath, yoga instructor, and women’s health advocate. Welcome to Life Cycles, created to empower women to thrive during every cycle of life, including adolescence, preconception, pregnancy, early motherhood, menopause, and beyond.

Support for every season

Being a woman is no walk in the park. From period pain to mood swings, birthing to menopause, we seem to dread each milestone instead of welcoming change. 

What if there was a better way?

I help women honour their sacred life cycles and celebrate their femininity. With 15 years of experience as a midwife, I draw on evidence-based holistic tools and therapies including naturopathy, yoga, and mindfulness.
