Dr. Melissa Sonners is the host of the Be Inspired Mama Podcast, a community for women who want to transform struggles into victories by taking action.
She has extensive training in prenatal, postpartum and pediatric care. Melissa shares the latest research with parents and children who are pursuing healthy lifestyles and navigating the complex demands of balancing it all. She completed the functional neurology childhood developmental course through the Carrick Institute and is one of only 52 professionals who earned her diplomate in chiropractic pediatrics from the Academy of Family Practice in North America.
Self-care took on new importance for her when she became a parent and then again when she experienced health challenges. Melissa was diagnosed in 2017 with a neurological form of lyme disease with meningitis and encephalitis. She considers lyme disease one of her greatest gifts, since it forced her to put herself closer to the top of her daily to-do list. She enjoys speaking and teaching about self-care to inspire other women to prioritize their needs.
