Birth Doula Profile - Lorie Michaels
I believe there is no calling higher than supporting women in creating a magnificent, peaceful, and empowering entrance into this world for a child. In my own son’s birth, I created a space wherein I was totally surrounded by love and joy – my own experience was truly wonderful and I revel in the memories. My goal is to create that kind of space for the mothers I work with.
The women I have had the honor of supporting and witnessing in childbirth are amazing and have my utmost respect, admiration and humble appreciation. My job as a doula is to support you in your decisions, share what I know, give you comfort and be a supportive advocate to you and your family.
Professionally, I am a healer, a counselor, an advocate for women and children in domestic violence, a website designer and train educators on software programs.
I love listening to audiobooks, reading, walking with my dog, yoga, cooking, DIY home projects, sailing, and doing nice things for people.
Congratulations, and I wish you a beautiful pregnancy and birth.
