Hello! I am Michelle, a birth and postnatal doula working in Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire.
I became a mother in 2013 and muddled my way through birth and the first year of motherhood with very little knowledge or support so when I was pregnant with my second child a year later I found myself a doula.
Having a doula at my second birth and postnatally made me realise how important the role of a doula is and it inspired me to want to train as one myself to give back to other women, so a few years later, here I am!
I began my journey to becoming a Doula UK recognised doula in 2017 when I took the Developing Doulas training course and I've furthered my studies recently by learning the Closing the Bones massage and a Postnatal recovery massage.
Outside of the world of birth I spend my days home-educating my children and doing long-distance running through the Suffolk and Essex countryside.
