Hi! I am Michelle. I believe in a woman’s strength and intuition in childbirth, and her right to make informed decisions surrounding her birth. With both of my children's births it was especially important for me to surround myself with people who believed in my strength, who helped me make informed decisions, and who trusted me to do so. I look forward to giving back to you and your family what was given to me – bringing these beliefs to your chosen birth setting, with compassion and without judgment.

Pregnancy and childbirth are beautiful times in a woman’s life, and miraculously normal. My hope as a doula is that I can help you and your family feel empowered, informed and nurtured through the daily miracle of childbirth.

My service includes:

2-3 prenatal visits
24-hour on-call support beginning 2 weeks before your estimated due date
Continual physical and emotional support throughout labor and childbirth
Breastfeeding support
1-2 postpartum visits
Phone and email support for up to 6 weeks postpartum
Referrals to any necessary services or information you may need
Fees: $600-800 sliding scale
