Michelle was part of our team when our second child was born in July of 2022. I had had significant pelvic girdle pain with my second after having a herniated disk with my first and was really drawn to her spinning babies training. She suggested resources I could connect with and was a calm and confident presense--something that was invaluable when we all showed up at the birthing center together and I was at 9cm! She was encouraging but not intrusive. She worked with my husband to provide the counter pressure that I needed through a July 4th labor that was so fast and intense the midwife missed most of it!

I consulted remotely with Michelle over the course of my induction and labor. She helped me feel empowered and supported for the entire experience. I highly recommend her for her calm demeanor, knowledge and helpful suggestions.
