Hello my name is Michelle and I am a mommy to 5 beautiful children. Three girls and two boys.
I trained as a doula in 2010
I am more than happy to support home or hospital births.
I know how valuable it is to have good support and information to achieve a positive birth.
I am here to support not only the person in labour but their partner too and I will never get in the way of that relationship. I will support you with feeding your baby however you choose. Although I am a trained breastfeeding peer supporter and am happy to help support you to establish breastfeeding. I offer full telephone, whatsapp and e-mail support during your pregnancy and in the early weeks after the birth.
As a Mom and a doula I feel every birthing person should have access to a doula so I am happy to talk about payment plans or even trade swaps.
