Melinda, mom of two, has been designing maternity and nursing bras and nightgowns under the Melinda G™ label since her own pregnancy in 1986.  Cezara™, designed for the comfort and support of pregnant and new moms, is her first support panty.
The idea and design for the Cezara™ belly support panty came after extensive conversations with nursing moms who voiced concerns about their Cesarean scars and lack of comfort and mobility after delivery and how this affected their nursing experiences.  Her meeting with Dr. Albert Tydings, Ob/Gyn, whose repeat Cesarean patients voiced similar concerns, led to the development of the Cezara™ belly support panty,  which provides comfort and support for moms so they can more fully enjoy their pregnancies and new babies.
When she’s not developing products for moms' comfort, Melinda, a former dancer, enjoys attending theater and dance performances and mucking about in her tomato and potato patches.

Dr. Albert Tydings, Ob/Gyn, Cezara™ Ambassador, trained at The Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York, and at the Nassau County Medical Center in East Meadow, New York. He served as Chair of the Obstetrics/Gynecology Department at Highland Park Hospital/Lakeview Hospital in Covington, Louisiana, for twelve years. He delivers over 300 beautiful babies a year. He has many young mothers as patients and he noticed that for many different reasons, they have multiple Cesarean deliveries. He became concerned about their need for support and comfort so that they can remain active during their pregnancies and post-delivery recoveries. His meeting with Melinda Gros led to the development of the Cezara™ belly support panty. His patients, who start wearing Cezara™ as soon as they desire belly and back support and resume wearing it shortly after delivery, report being much more active and physically fit, with fewer aches and discomforts, than they had experienced during prior pregnancies. Dr. Tydings is married with 2 wonderful children.
