Michelle has been exactly the

Michelle has been exactly the support we needed for the birth of our daughter. As first time parents Michelle’s personable, compassionate and caring way has given us confidence, helping us relax with each chapter, including pre and post baby. Truly passionate in her role, Michelle offered information and resources aligned with our vision for a natural home birth which was so helpful and inspiring. She was superbly attentive, patient and encouraging throughout labour – Michelle’s skills and energy undoubtedly helped us achieve the birth we wanted! Her reassurance now in our journey as parents I’m so grateful for, Michelle instills faith and optimism in me regularly – big big thanks to our wonderful Tiny Doula 🙂
