Doula Type: Birth, Trainee
Phone: 0435 442 206
I am Michelle Christensen. I come from a small desert town in southern Utah, in the United States. Over the past few years I've called England, Germany, and now Western Australia home. I am passionate about nature, music, yoga and, of course, birth.
My love and obsession for pregnancy and childbirth began with my own childhood. As a child, I worshiped the mothers in my community; fascinated by observing their bodies change and new babies join their families. It felt both magical and natural at once, and I knew I wanted to someday become a mother. Although I haven't yet become a mother, I have the greatest love and anticipation for the moment I do.
Years later I came to learn of doulas. Women serving women - supporting them through the experience of birth with knowledge, love and support. I enrolled in a doula training course with Australian Doulas am so excited to now be serving the Perth community as a birth doula.
My goal as a doula is to guide women towards feeling confident, informed, empowered and supported throughout their prenatal preparation, their birth, and postnatal journey. I consider it a beautiful honour to be welcomed into the birth space to support, love and witness women in their most powerful, sacred moments of birth and journey into motherhood.
My birth doula services include prenatal meetings, support during birth and postnatal meetings. I am currently serving the Perth metro area.
If you are interested in meeting to see if we are a match, please feel free to reach out.
