Michelle Gunderson

Birth Doula, Child Birth Educator, Placenta Encapsulator

Michelle has always been fascinated with birth and babies. In 2005, she became pregnant with her first child. She remembers her family being anxious as they tried to offer support during her birth. That was when she realized the importance of having someone who has experience with childbirth to help guide her and ground her through the process. Later, she learned about doulas and the ways to support women in child birth. 

In 2013 and 2014, she trained with Cornerstone Doula Training and received her birth and postpartum certifications. Michelle decided to expand her experience by becoming a Certified Childbirth Educator. In addition to those training courses, she has also taken classes on optimal fetal positioning and how to assist women in home-births. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Michelle believes it is important to adapt all her training to the birth preferences of her clients and is passionate about supporting couples through their ideal birth journey.

Michelle brings her enthusiastic approach to every birth and has the ability to make everyone feel safe and taken care of through the entire journey. She speaks fluent English and Italian
