Hi, I’m Michelle!
Working with expectant parents through pregnancy, birth and postpartum is my passion. After birthing and raising my own three children, doula work felt like a natural next step for me and I have been loving every minute of it! I feel strongly that the wishes of birthing parents be respected and supported in order for them to feel empowered in their labor and delivery, as well as postpartum. My purpose is to provide individualized, nurturing care and emotional encouragement along with evidence based information to help you make informed decisions about your care and that of your baby. I look forward to being a calming and consistent presence during labor and the postpartum period.
When Michelle is not attending births or assisting new parents, she enjoys spending time with her grown and growing children, whether it be going for a hike, playing board games, or watching movies together. She can also be found in the kitchen trying out new recipes or finding a quiet moment with a cup of tea and a good book.
