    Subject:  Childbirth classes
    Comment:  We had a great experience at Melt Massage. Michelle Arrieta from For Your Birth taught the queer-only birth class. She is queer and very funny, which helps in a birth class! My partner is trans and he felt very welcome and included, too. We're still friends with the other queer families in that class. Highly recommend and happy to talk more to anyone who is interested.

    Comment:  Thanks for the great reccs! For those further north (Ft Greene/Clinton Hill), I’ve been going to Melt for prenatal massages. Sadly, they no longer offer yoga classes which I did throughout my first pregnancy.

    Comment:  Not in Park Slope, but I’ve loved Melt in Fort Greene, which isn’t too far. All of the therapists have been good, but I’ve particularly liked Jen and Kate.

    Comment:  The pre- and post-natal massages at Melt Bodywork are incredible and thoughtful, and the therapists give you advice on alignment poses and exercises you can do to combat the strain of third trimester weight or breastfeeding/baby carrying.

    Comment:  Christy - pre-natal massage at Melt Massage & Bodywork in Fort Greene. Her class is smart, super gentle and breath focused; not a power vinyasa "pre-natal" class! She is eager to help all expecting mothers find ease and comfort both in their practice and their day-to-day lives. Her style of teaching is a rare find in the overachieving NYC yoga instructor pool. I feel strongly that my ease in delivery was largely due to my practice with Christy throughout my pregnancy.Based on February 2016 Birth Experience

    Comment:  Two weekend intensive Member Review: The instructor was Laura, and she was terrific. The class was small, just us and one other couple. Laura was clearly in favor of a natural birth, but she was not judgmental or against a non-natural birth. It was two four-hour classes. The first class focused on the stages of labor and what would happen during a natural birth. The second class focused on interventions. I had already read a lot about birth, but it was really good to have a forum for talking about it with my husband, and going over things orally (Review submitted via the 2014 Birthing Survey)Insurance details: I didn't try to get it covered by insurance. I did buy a package from Melt that included the class, a prenatal massage and two prenatal yoga classes.

    Comment:  There is an awesome place for massages, that just opened in Fort Greene, and a few therapists specialize in prenatal. I've gotten a few massages from them and they were amazing. I know there have been some threads looking for great prenatal massages, they are also very reasonable.Melt Massage and Bodywork- http://www.meltmassagenyc.com/They are also offering a "get your body back" post-partum fitness workshop, where you can bring your baby while you workout. http://www.meltmassagenyc.com/classes_wkshps.php
