Michelle has been a midwife for 24 years. Her passion as a midwife is to support women to enjoy their pregnancy as much as possible and provide advice, support and treatments for any health problems they might encounter. Michelle has worked as a midwife in provincial and private hospitals in South Africa; and in the NHS for the past 15 years – on natural birth centres, labour wards, antenatal and postnatal wards, and as a community midwife for the past 3 years also supporting women who choose to have homebirths. She specialises in complementary therapies for use during pregnancy and following birth.
Michelle enjoys and is passionate supporting women with breastfeeding and believes that every individual woman and baby will find their own way to successfully breastfeed, and that one regime does not fit everybody. Her years of experience supporting women with different birth experiences – homebirth, caesarean section, instrumental birth, premature baby, twins etc – has resulted in an open-minded view of breastfeeding and providing support with the ultimate goal for a happy contented mother and baby.
