I’m Melissa Danielle.
I’m so glad you’re here. I show women how to make peace with their periods so that they can give birth to babies and dreams. Since I self-diagnosed my PCOS in 2017 (with lab work confirming it a few months later), I’ve learned that fertility is more than about one’s ability to conceive — it’s a VITAL sign of overall health. I’ve been a health coach for over 15 years, and I’m now on a mission to help women balance their hormones and restore their fertility so they can feel good in their bodies.
As a graduate of Institute for Integrative Nutrition, along with continued trainings in reproductive wellness, birthwork, therapeutic massage, and other healing modalities, I’m committed to helping women develop body literacy and personal freedom.

Go from Stressed and Obssessed to Empowered
While there may not be a cure for PCOS, you can take steps to balance your hormones, improve your fertility and overall health.
I’ve partnered with The Fertility Expert, Dr. Marc Sklar, to help you develop the body literacy you need to understand the role your hormones play in weight management, your menstrual cycle, fertility, and overall well-being.
Best of all, you can do all this in the comfort of your own home.

Whether your PCOS has been triggered by insulin resistance, androgen excess, inflammation, or coming off the pill, there are key supplements your body needs to reverse your symptoms and restore your fertility to its optimal state.
While zinc, magnesium, iodine, selenium, iron, and vitamin D are essential to ovarian health, minimizing PMS and period pain, PCOS requires a bit more support, such as inositol, NAC, and antioxidants.
I recommend FH Pro for Women, a fertility grade supplement that contains the aforementioned PCOS helpers, along with FH Pro Omega. You can learn about these supplements by clicking here.
Please note: It is highly recommended that you consult with your primary healthcare provider who is supporting you on your PCOS wellness journey about the use of supplements. It is not necessary for you to take all of these supplements at once. Your doctor, naturopath, or other medical professional will be able to offer the best guidance and recommendations.
Eating for PCOS
Because there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to wellness, it’s unrealistic to believe that there’s one way of eating that will work for everyone with PCOS.
While a diet that focuses on leafy greens, quality protein and fat and foods that increase insulin sensitivity while also decreasing inflammation is ideal, highly restrictive diets are not sustainable over the long-term.
If your weight is contributing to your PCOS symptoms, I invite you to consider focusing on changing your relationship with food by learning how to plan out your meals instead of focusing on eating to lose weight. When you focus on what you’re eating, you’ll learn to make the connection between what you eat, how you feel, and how your body responds.
But meal planning doesn’t have to be a chore. With apps like PlateJoy, you simply plug in your eating and cooking preferences and the app will do the rest. Depending on your city, you may also be able to get grocery delivery through the app (extra charge). Try it out for yourself by signing up for a free trial. Use code GET10 to save $10.
Get Fit, Fertile, & Free with Me
A commonly held belief is that health is experienced through “eating right” and exercising. But there’s more to health than food and fitness. And since PCOS is both a metabolic and endocrine disorder, it’s not that simple. Insulin resistance, estrogen excess, androgen excess, and inflammation are just some of the factors that disrupts ovulatory cycles and causes unwanted weight gain that is hard to release.
This is why I’ve joined one of the most successful health and fitness companies to support women with PCOS. As a health coach, I’ve spent almost 15 years guiding people towards their own version of health and happiness. I’ve used my training and experience to reverse almost all of my own PCOS symptoms, and now I’d like to pay it forward. If you’re looking for a holistic approach to reversing your PCOS symptoms, one that offers nutrition, fitness, personal development, accountability, and community, you’re in the right place.
Fit, Fertile, & Free is an online community for motivated women who are ready to commit to taking daily action to improving their health naturally with support and accountability. You’ll simply choose your level of investment and I’ll help you choose the fitness and nutrition options that best fit your goals.
For most of us, getting a diagnosis after months and even years living with missed periods, anovulatory cycles, and difficulty conceiving, along with a host of symptoms feels like a major win.
Since PCOS doesn’t have a cure, there’s little most doctors can offer beyond telling you to lose weight or prescribing medication that only masks, but doesn’t get to the root cause of your symptoms.
As an integrative nutrition and women’s health coach who also lives with PCOS, I can help you figure out the best course of action to help you balance your hormones and take back your health.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to managing PCOS, but there are some foundational steps you can take TODAY to start seeing improvements in your body and overall well-being.
