Stefanie Haralson

We meet Michelle through UMC Birthing Center and it was a perfect match for us! We  heard about Doulas and knew we wanted to have the most natural birth if possible and the best way to get that support would be having an experienced coach to be by our side and that's exactly what we had. Michelle was always available for me to ask questions and we were in weekly communication when it got closer to time. When the big day come, she was on the phone giving ideas to us, because we wanted to do the majority of our work at home. Once we were on the way to the hospital she was there with all her bag of goodies and more technics to help along the labor process. She not only was she there for my husband and I, but kept our family updated when she could. As soon as our baby boy came into the world, she was there helping me breastfeed, it's wonderful to have someone so experienced and helpful, especially after you feel like you ran a marathon! She went above and beyond for us, I look forward to having her for all our future births! My husband and I would highly recommend Michelle!!
