I'm Melissa Woodward - Women's Health Coach, Owner of Fearless Health and Mum to two strong willed, active boys.
Looking back on my path to become a Mum, I feel like my body has been through it all. I’ve experienced two c-sections, miscarriage, IVF, Gestational Diabetes (now insulin resistance), abdominal separation, umbilical hernia repair, uterine polyps and all the aches of every day life.
There were times I was fearful of exercise, felt alone with no one to trust on how to support me through any of the challenges. After the birth of my first son, I decided to become the person I wanted for myself. I educated myself in postnatal recovery, pregnancy, and postnatal exercise coaching. As a Remedial Massage Therapist, I even have experience with c-section scar tissue.
My goal is to help women heal their relationship with exercise by considering you as a whole person. I have helped guide many women through pregnancy, postnatal recovery, surgery recovery, and more with this gentle but effective strength training approach.
I aim to ease you back into movement, manage pain or injury, and to encourage you to give yourself permission to rest when your body needs it most.
Fearless Foundations is the program I wished I’d had to get started with exercise after each life stage, change and challenge.
