Closing the Bones and Postnatal Recovery Massage
Hello! I am Michelle, a birth and postnatal doula working in Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire.
I became a mother in 2013 and muddled my way through birth and the first year of motherhood with very little knowledge or support so when I was pregnant with my second child a year later I found myself a doula.
Having a doula at my second birth and postnatally made me realise how important the role of a doula is and it inspired me to want to train as one myself to give back to other women, so a few years later, here I am!
I began my journey to becoming a Doula UK recognised doula in 2017 when I took the Developing Doulas training course and I’ve furthered my studies recently by learning the Closing the Bones massage and a Postnatal recovery massage.
Outside of the world of birth I spend my days homeschooling my children and doing long-distance 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’m also comfortable supporting you to free birth.
As your doula I am passionate about helping you to become empowered to achieve the birth you desire. I will offer you my support emotionally during your pregnancy and labour and will listen to you and care for you openly and honestly.
