About / Bio
I live with my husband and five children on the Tweed Coast of NSW. I trained as a Doula with Optimum Birth and as a Childbirth Educator with Childbirth International. I am a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and a Breastfeeding Counsellor with ABA. I am also a Hypnobirthing Australia Practioner. I passionately believe that given the right information and support, pregnancy, birth and the early days of parenting can be the most amazing experience of your life. I have one of the best jobs in the world!!
"I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone whom has any concerns and fears about childbirth. Michelle was wonderful support during the later stages of my pregnancy, birth and the weeks following. Michelle has a natural warmth about her and was always happy to assist with any concerns I had. The contact after the birth was so much appreciated and you could really feel her genuine desire to help. Thanks so much Michelle for your knowledge, support and wonderful encouragement you gave. Myself and my husband thank you so very much, we now have a beautiful little boy to cherish and enjoy !" J&T Gold Coast "We can't recommend Michelle highly enough. Having had the best possible labour I owe a lot of that to Michelle. Michelle helped me to believe in myself and feel that I could have a drug free natural birth. She is such a warm caring mother and it was great to experience someone like her through the last stages of my pregnancy After having a drug free natural labour I can't thank Michelle enough, and have a beautiful little girl to admire and love." A&N Chillingham "I can't Thank You enough for all your support during the birth and leading up to it. I don't think I could have got through that without you and I am forever grateful ! The thought of having a baby for the first time scared the crap out of me and you gave me the knowledge and encouragement and confidence to believe in myself and my body to be able to deliver my baby naturally and with confidence
