About Me: My name is Michelle Harris. And I felt the call to do more. For as long as I can remember I have been enthralled with pregnancy, birth and babies. Even as a child I felt drawn to learn everything I could about this beautiful chapter of life.
Seventeen years ago, after Massage School I felt the call to do more. I chose to specialize in Prenatal, Labor and Postpartum Massage. I also went through the certification process to be qualified to teach Infant Massage to parents. With the goal in mind of having a specialized massage practice nurturing pregnant women and their babies.
After the birth of my oldest two children, I learned how having more education and support during pregnancy, labor and birth would have changed my birth stories significantly. I also learned firsthand how disappointment in birth is closely linked to postpartum depression and how the postpartum chapter can be an isolated and very lonely time in a woman’s life. Additional support is needed in the postpartum period too! I felt the call to do more. I became a Birth and Postpartum Doula and a Childbirth Educator.
The birth of new mothers and new fathers is just as important as the birth of the child they have brought into this world and the empowerment they can feel during birth can carry over into the postpartum period! We need to surround the new parents, support them, and create a space for them to feel comfortable, confident and believe in themselves! This is includes adequate breastfeeding support. I felt the call to do more.
After breastfeeding three babies, I had the most trouble with my fourth. I had to rely on the knowledgeable IBCLC’s from the hospital to get me through that challenging time. They were wonderful! However, it was the hardest thing I had to do -go back. Packing my sweet baby up days after discharge to go back to the hospital (still wearing a giant pad) to get help with breastfeeding wasn’t just physically hard, it was emotionally hard too. I felt the call to do more.
This is the aim of my skills, knowledge, and talent, to empower, educate and support new parents, helping them to have the confidence they need as they transition into their new roles of parenthood. I offer families MORE. More support, more education, more comfort, more time, more personalized care. I am also able to help breastfeeding mamas in the comfort of their own homes -offering them more.
