At first we had no clue what a Doula even was but a previous client of Michelle’s suggested her to us for my first baby back in December! We decided we would give a Doula a shot and oh my gosh we were so fortunate we did! Michelle came to our house to explain EVERYTHING about Doula’s, explained how she will help us through labor, and gave me a little pampered session of foot rubs and such! Having Michelle by my side allowed my contractions to feel so minimal that I did not even need an epidural! She helped me breath and also helped to comfort my fiancé and mother, allowing them to just be there for support and not having to help me with breathing. Things went crazy and I ended up needing a c section after not progressing for over an hour at 8.5cm. My mother and fiancé were not comfortable going in for that, so Michelle went in to support me! How amazing! I went from just hearing about Michelle to feeling like family with her from all the support she gave us! I will definitely be having Michelle by our sides again for our next baby in the future!
Michelle is wonderful! She is so caring and understanding and takes the time to really get to know you and your needs. She meets with you as much or as little as you need before the birth and provides ample resources for any questions you may have. She is a wealth of knowledge and was so supportive of my needs throughout the birth and after-birth as well!
Michelle is absolutely outstanding. I had a birth experience that did not go as planned at all (do they ever??) and long story short it ended up being a long 36 hours. My goal was to go non-medicated but after a rough 17 hours of laboring and little progress I decided to change routes. But let me tell you during those hours, I would never have been able to make it that far without Michelle. Even my husband said he couldn’t have done it without her. She was the most supportive, loving, selfless, and caring person during the entire process. And even after deciding to get and epidural, Michelle never left my side and gave me all the words of encouragement needed because I had felt like a failure. (Which I wasn’t, my body was just exhausted). My husband has also been in awe of Her, he has said numerous times that he doesn’t think he could have gone through it all without her help and support. Also postpartum, Michelle has been nothing short of amazing. Dropping by to make sure my mental health has been well, cooking meals, offering advice, breastfeeding support, and so much more! I cannot recommend her enough. Even if you don’t want the FULL experience, Michelle will help with whatever you may need. IF I ever have another one, she will be my go to again!!
