Michelle was extremely helpful for me in my 2nd pregnancy. She’s genuine, kind and a natural nurturing and caring person. Being a mother and her experience as Doula provides her with skills and knowledge that almost can’t be taught, it’s more instincts, knowing what to do and when to do it. Most women have no idea what pregnancy and birth requires and so they don’t know what to ask for. A Doula, my Doula is ready at all times with comfort measures, nutritional tips and support.  It was a great experience for us both. I would definitely recommend her to any expectant mothers, especially first time mothers could benefit tremendously from her guidance.

I honestly find it difficult to put into words how vital Michelle has been to my experience of becoming a new mom. I wish I had thought sooner than I did to enlist the help of someone with the kind of skill, talent, and knowledge Michelle has when it comes to pregnancy, childbirth, and baby care. I was very lost, and VERY tired, and I don’t have close family who were able to offer any kind of real support. I have found Michelle to be someone I trust unreservedly with my baby, and whose guidance and opinion I value and respect. I firmly believe I would not have been able to make this life transition in such an overall positive way without having her consistent presence and maternal energy to help guide me through. I think that for anyone, the value of having support you trust through this process is incredibly important for a new mom’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. If we aren’t taking care of ourselves, and if we don’t feel truly seen and heard during this difficult time in life, it is nearly impossible to effectively care for and love our new baby. I can only really speak for myself, but I will say I recommend to every one of my pregnant/thinking about getting pregnant/new mom friends that they should establish a professional relationship with someone in the way that I’ve been able to do with Michelle. She is also consistent, punctual, professional, and receptive to my needs and the needs of my baby. I have had an incredibly positive experience, and will truly be grateful for this connection for the rest of my life.
