About your Doula

My name is Michelle Schuler and I began my journey in birth work shortly after the birth of my first child in 2015. I am passionate about helping families find their inner voice and strength so that they can have a confident and active part in their child’s birth and in their life. My philosophy is that birth is a natural and very personal process, one that looks different for every couple and because of this, I support you no matter how or where you choose to birth your baby.


“Michelle has been absolutely amazing to me and my family!! I was worried about some of my wishes being followed during labor/delivery. Michelle went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable during my labor/delivery but also that my SO was comfortable. Together, Michelle and my SO were able to support me throughout the process. Michelle helped to make sure that all of my wishes were met the best they could be. Photos during my labor and delivery were very important to me but I didn’t have anyone to take them, Michelle did amazing at getting some photos while still supporting me and being by my side. Postpartum, Michelle has continued to check and see how our new family has been adjusting and she offered support at our home as well.”
