Hello! I am Michelle (she/her).

I am a birth and postnatal doula, a hypnobirthing instructor and a placenta remedies specialist supporting families in Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and London.

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 recognise the importance of having someone care for you during birth and postnatally and it inspired me to want to train as one myself to give back to other birthing people, so a few years later, here I am! 

Hypnobirthing techniques were so beneficial to me for the birth of both of my children, so it made sense to train to teach others!


With my second birth I had my placenta encapsulated and found the placenta pills so beneficial in supporting my postnatal healing so I decided to learn how to do this, too.


Outside of the world of birth I spend my days home-educating my children and running through the Suffolk and Essex countryside.

If you’d like to know more about the packages and services I offer, please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!
