I could never have predicted how magical it would be to work with Michelle for the birth of my first child. Michelle and Abby of Beloved Births pulled out all the stops to ensure that my daughter's birth was as smooth and comfortable as possible, and that my husband and I had realistic, emotionally mature, and hugely positive expectations for the entire process.
Michelle is fantastic - friendly, warm and FULL of information - a great teacher and a hugely considerate person who showed in her every action that she only wanted the best for my birth experience and our family.
Michelle provided a personalized, in-home Childbirth Education class that absolutely exceeded our expectations. With information that addressed the physical and scientific side of birth, to the mental and emotional preparedness side - we felt like we were given tools to cope with every step of the pre-, during, and post-birth process. We walked away from the Childbirth Education class telling all our friends they needed to take it too - it was more effective and helpful by FAR than any of the classes friends or family members had taken elsewhere.
Michelle's aid in our preparation was pivotal for helping us walk into the hospital with an understanding of what was going to happen over the next day or two (or more!) and with confidence that we would be able to handle anything.
Michelle's background as both a Labor & Delivery Nurse and Doula was an perfect match for us - as we wanted to learn about childbirth with an emphasis on the science behind everything in the body, but with a focus on mental and emotional preparedness and a trust that my body would know what to do and when to do it.
We feel loved and cared for by Michelle and Abby from start to finish - working with Beloved Births was one of the best decisions we could have made.
Michelle is the calm in the middle of the storm. During the birth of our son she brought to the table a background in nursing with the compassion and support needed to help my wife get through childbirth. Let’s face it, the delivery room is chaos; doctors/nurses/support staff coming in and out, a expectant mother facing possibly the most challenging experience of her life and a husband who may be overwhelmed by it all. Michelle’s guidance and patience throughout my wife’s entire delivery was priceless. She knew what was to happen next and provided strong advocacy on our behalf. She’s fantastic and I highly recommend her services.
