Vision: To provide equitable and respectful pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care for all.
I commit to providing inclusive, equitable, and accessible midwifery care, education, and doula services to all families who want and need support during their perinatal year and beyond.
Thank you to all who voted me Favorite Doula in Monterey County by Monterey Bay Parent Magazine for 2021-2022!
It has been my honor and pleasure serving my community for the past 21+ years.
NEWS as of April 28, 2022
Due to unforeseeable circumstances, and with great sadness, I am putting a pause on accepting clients wanting to use their Tricare benefits for doula services. It is apparent that Tricare is still not fully ready for this program to be up and running. I have spent hours doing my due diligence to make this work, but it has become too much for me as I navigate a masters program and the clients who are already in my care. In the meantime, I hope that this Tricare demonstration will be able to work out the kinks in the coming weeks and months and that I will be able to accept these clients in the near future. I will keep a close eye on their progress.
Thank you for your understanding. ~Michele
We had the most rewarding and fulfilling experience with Michele. Her training as a student midwife and her years of practice as a doula make her extremely knowledgeable, caring, and supportive. I recommend her to every pregnant friend I have.
We are committed to:
Safeguarding the right to normal, physiological birth for all childbearing people
Eliminating the disparities in birth outcomes for people of color, indigenous people, and their infants
Providing equitable and accessible care for all members of our community
If you identify as someone from an oppressed or marginalized population, know that I am committed to making the world a better place for you. All people and families are welcomed and embraced in this practice.
