About me

Hello, I’m Michelle and I live in Bath with my husband and twins, who are amazing and bring happiness and light to every situation.

Having previously worked in care, for the NHS, The Priory and schools in various councils. I worked as a support worker for adults, young adults, and children with learning disabilities including autism, mental health problems, and physical disabilities. But knew I wasn’t working in quite the right area of support, for me. Until I found the wonderful world of doulaing…

Working one to one with people is what I have always enjoyed, getting to know each other, building a relationship of trust, acceptance and empowerment. Being a doula is what I was meant to do, so I trained with the Developing Doulas, a course that is recognised byDoula UK, to become a mentored birth and postnatal doula.

Outside of work, I love spending time with family and friends, chocolate, dancing, theatre, art, dancing, music, paella, cider, tidying up (odd I know), cuddles and did I mention dancing.

I am continually learning to develop and grow as a doula, as well as keeping up with new and evolving research.
