Michele 2013

Thank you for visiting Mum’s the Word.  My name is Michele Nizza.  My Mission is to provide you with the education and information you need to make an informed decision for you and your family.

I have supported many families as a Birth Doula since I started Mum’s the Word in 2000, having attended numerous workshops and seminars to learn how to best support birthing families.  Recently, I created an Advanced Doula/Advanced Childbirth Educator Training to support other Doulas wanting to create a professional practice.

My goal is to offer families an educated journey from the beginning of their pregnancy, through childbirth, and postpartum/breastfeeding.

I offer:

  • Birth and Postpartum Doula Services
  • Pregnancy Classes
  • Childbirth Education Classes
  • Bringing Baby Home Visits
  • Breastfeeding Assistance
  • Breastfeeding Classes
  • Breastpump Rentals
  • Massage, specializing in Prenatal and Postpartum
  • Advanced Doula Trainings
  • Doula Mentoring
  • And so much more!


  • I am currently accepting doula clients for various months throughout the rest of the year.  If you would like more information about how I can best support you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
  • If you need a class before your due date and our class schedule does not fit your needs, please contact me.  I will honor the $75 price and provide you with a mini private class.
  • I offer Hygeia hospital-grade breastpumps for rent.  To check availability, please contact me at:  (831) 238-0655.
