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.
When not doula-ing, I am a healer, a counselor, an advocate for women and LGBTQ+ families, a website designer and train educators on software programs. I love listening to audiobooks, reading, walking, yoga, cooking, DIY home projects, sailing, and doing nice things for people.
Congratulations, and I wish you a beautiful pregnancy and birth.
“You are pregnant and you are powerful. You are bold and you are beautiful. Go forward in your boldness, in your beauty and in your contentedness. Trust your body to birth and know that the collective power of women worldwide will be with you.”
