Doula, Childbirth Educator, Breastfeeding Counselor, Massage Therapist
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.

In case you need a hospital-grade electric pump, I have Hygeia pumps in stock for RENT. These pumps are different from the single-use pumps that are sold in stores. These pumps are helpful for trying to increase milk supply, maintaining milk supply, and for everyday, long-term use. These are not casual pumping pumps. Also, if you obtain a prescription from your doctor, and get a receipt from me, you can submit both to your insurance company and hopefully, they will reimburse you. If you would like more information about rentals, call me at (831) 238-0655. If you would like more information about Hygeia, visit their website at: www.hygeiainc.com.
- We are now offering Bringing Baby Home Visits. For more information, please take a look at our Services/Pricing Page.
