My name is Michelle Turner and I am a DONA trained Birth Doula and mother of 6. I consider it an honour and a joy to be with you as you become a mom and family, even if it for the second, third or more times! Birth is a transitional time is a women's life. It changes you in the most basic and profound ways and you will never be the same! Every birth is completely different just like every child is different! I would know ,personally I have had 3 hospital births, one of which was an augmented labour, and 3 home births (2 of which were water births). Both Midwifes and Obstetricians have attended me. I have successfully breastfed 6 children. I understand the challenges facing birth, societal pressures and breastfeeding dilemmas. I am a birth and breastfeeding advocate.
