Mommy of Baby Elena
I feel brilliant and exuberant now that I know the power within me. I would have never known this without the help of Michelle. She is a wise angel!
Baby Clarissa Lindsey
My mommy says, "There is NOBODY better than Michelle. I highly recommend her to anyone! She has attended both of my births, and I truly couldn't have done it without her by my side. The love and compassion she has for clients is truly amazing. Her voice is very soothing, which really helped me to relax during my laboring. Of all the many the things she taught me, she really taught me to trust my body during the birthing process and it helped me tremendously."We loovee, love, love her!"
Parents of Baby Ryder
We really appreciate the difference attending individual HypnoBirthing classes with Michelle made. Our classes were catered to our unique needs. We can't imagine attending group classes now.
Parents of Baby Samson
Samson was born all natural at home in the water. He was 9lbs! Labor was not painful like everyone says. It was hard work, but comfortable. Our bodies are capable of wonderful things! HypnoBirthing works! My husband was so calm and loving through the whole process.
Michelle's Grandbaby Samson
My birth was gentle and beautiful thanks to my Mommy's and Daddy's serenity as I was born. Thank you so much Midwife Mary, Auntie Meg, and all the Inspiration Family Birth Center staff.
Mommy of Baby Mia
Birth can be a joyous and ecstatic experience! I was smiling and laughing as my baby girl entered into the world.
The McCandless Family
We were all born gently with our HypnoDoula Michelle's presence and voice providing support to us all. Mom says that she could not have had such amazing births without you.
Michelle helped put my mommy's mind, heart, and soul at ease before, during and after my birth.
I had an awesome birth! :)
Mommy & Baby Coryn
Thank you so much for preparing us to meet whatever turn our birthing makes.
Baby Madelyn Rain
Hello! I was born naturally despite my Mommy having to be induced. My Mommy practiced HypnoBirthing with Michelle throughout her pregnancy & my birth experience was beautiful. The room was peaceful, quiet, & filled with lots of love. The first time I got to meet my 'Auntie Michelle' after I was born I instantly remembered her voice & greeted her with a big smile to say, "Thanks for being part of my birth story."
Daddy & Baby Leia
Experiencing the birth of my child with the HypnoBirthing method and the help of Michelle was not only spiritual, but also it has become the best moment of my entire life.
Mommy & Baby Banner
I am so often incredibly overcome with gratitude every time I think about the last trimester of my pregnancy. Without your coaching, I would have struggled more in labor I believe. Everyone at Inspiration Family Birth Center and you imparted such a wealth of knowledge in such a little amount of time. I consider you a gift from the gods!
Mommy & Baby Lucy
My grandmother (who birthed 7 babies naturally) cried at the beauty of my birth story. She has heard so many stories. I was the first unmedicated 1st timer, & the 1st unmedicated mom with 'back labor'. Hearing that made me feel so strong & grateful to myself for not giving up for the first time in my life. I couldn't have hung in there without HypnoBirthing & my knowledge of birth. THANK YOU for helping me to welcome the process in its raw, natural state. It was the most beautiful experience.
We love Michelle!
Mom to Marlea
The baby girl you helped me bring into the world 10 1/2 years ago. I don't think I could ever adequately express how grateful I am for the way you helped make it such a beautiful and powerful experience. Thank you!
Although my mama had used HypnoBirthing for my big brother's birth, she felt that Michelle's refresher class would help her get mentally ready for another natural labor. Luckily, Michelle was at the hospital to support mama because at 10cm dilated she hit a mental roadblock. But Michelle knew just how to talk her through doing a fear-release. Not 15 minutes later, I was born! Thanks Michelle for helping my mama have a lovely, natural birth!
Mommy of Callie & London
Michelle was my doula TWICE. Callie's birth was such a wonderful labor and delivery, and London's was even more special. I am now considered an 'oiler', and with her aromatherapy background, and my collection of essential oils, she was able to get me through a non-medicated, no-epidural, wonderful birth yet again! Michelle is a phenomenal doula- so calm. She truly transcends you to where your body can to where your body can let go and deliver bundles of joy, without fear!
The Bleakley Family
I've been practicing your Hypnobirthing since my first baby was born, almost three years ago, and the impact it made on my second home birth was simply amazing. The birth was everything I wanted it to be and more and i could not have done it without you. I felt like you were right there in the room with me the whole time. Thank you for teaching me and sharing yourself with me. It was really amazing: even between my strongest contractions, I was able to drift away from it all.
