Doula, Pregnancy Yoga and
Spinning Babies Practitioner
Hi, I’m Michele. I am committed to supporting women through their pregnancy, birth and early parenthood journey, whatever route that might take: home or hospital, water birth or planned caesarean, without judgement or preconception.
I hope to give women the tools they need to feel confident and empowered to make informed decisions every step of the way.
My experience of pregnancy and birth was positive and joyful because I felt in control, listened to, respected and cared for and I wish for every woman to feel the same.
After your baby’s – (or babies!) – birth, I can provide nurturing care, an extra pair of hands, a listening ear, warm hugs and endless cups of tea to help you recover from birth and ease into life as a new parent. I also have strong links to other practitioners and resources which can be particularly useful to you and your baby in the early days, including cranial osteopaths and breastfeeding specialists among others.
I’m originally from Pittsburgh, PA, USA, and moved to London after marrying my British husband over 20 years ago. We have three children, one born in hospital and at the suggestion of the hospital midwives, the other two at home. We were caught by surprise with the early appearance of our second child, with my husband taking on a little more of a hands-on role than he’d expected and stepping in to guide her into the world 30 minutes before the midwife arrived!
