About me

Hello, I’m Michelle and I live in Bath with my husband and twins, who are amazing, challenging and funny, and probably my biggest inspiration and drive behind my work.

Working one to one with people is what I have always enjoyed, getting to know each other, building a relationship of acknowledgement, respect and advocacy. I am a people person. Having previously worked for The Priory, NHS and in various educational settings, I know my natural place in the world is in supporting families.

I am continually learning to develop and grow as a birthworker, as well as keeping up with new and evolving research.
