Hypnobirthing and Placenta encapsulation
Hello! I am Michelle (she/her), a birth activist, full-spectrum doula, hypnobirthing instructor and placenta remedies provider, supporting families across Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and London.
I became a parent in 2013 and found it to be isolating, confusing and hard! It wasn’t until I had my second child, with a doula alongside me, that I recognised the importance of having someone care for you during birth and nurture you postnatally.
Outside of the world of birth I spend my days home-educating my children and running through the Suffolk and Essex countryside.
There’s not a ‘one size fits all’ approach to pregnancy and birth so the way I work is very personalised to you and your family and varies with each and every birth. I am here to support you however you choose to birth your baby, whether that be a home birth, hospital birth or midwife led birth unit.
I have supported low-risk pregnancies, high-risk pregnancies and I have been alongside both first-time parents and parents who have given birth before. I’ve been alongside people birthing their baby at home, in birth centres and in hospital. I’m also experienced in supporting VBACs.
As your doula I am passionate about helping you to become informed and empowered to achieve a positive birth experience. I will offer you my support emotionally during your pregnancy and labour and will listen to you and care for you openly and honestly.
If you’d like to know more about the packages and services I offer, please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!
