My name is Michelle Turner and I am a DONA trained Birth Doula and mother of 5. I consider it an honour and a joy to be with you as you become a mom and family, even if it's 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 completelydifferent just like every child is different! I would know , personally I have had 3 hospital births, one of which was an augmented labour, and two home waterbirths. Both Midwifes and Obstetricians have attended me. I havesuccessfully breastfed 5 children. I understand the challenges facing birth,societal pressures and breastfeeding dilemmas. I am a birth andbreastfeeding advocate.
