Hello, I am Michelle and my doula philosophy is to be the calm in the room and to hold a safe space for women so they can explore the intricacies of their mothering journey.
I offer one to one continual emotional and practical support, encouragement and reassurance and non-biased, evidence based information around pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
Support is flexible to suit you and your family’s needs but maybe include: talking through birth preferences, light touch massage, cooking hot meals, light housework, a good listening ear, lending of books, holding baby whilst you sleep or shower, company on first outings, and more…
Please drop me an email or call if you would like to have a chat, talk through any queries, or set up a meeting at this exciting time, I’d love to hear from you.
Safe In Your Hands is run and owned by Sue Wheeler. She is a qualified teacher and nursery nurse. She has been working with children and young people for over 20 years.
She started her teaching career in 1998 after qualifying from King Alfred’s University. She has spent her career working in different schools and nurseries within West Sussex, Spain and Bath and more recently at Bath College and Barnardo’s in Bristol.
For 2 years she worked as a deputy manager at a nursery in Bath where she used her extensive knowledge and skills to offer quality childcare experiences for all that attended.
Within schools she had many roles including course leader and D&T co-ordinator. She is passionate about creating an environment where learning and knowledge can be shared and absorbed.
Her passions continue into the field of safeguarding and when she was at Bath College she specialised in this area. This passion led her then to work for Barnardo’s for 2 years where she delivered child sexual exploitation training to the night time economy both within Bristol and throughout South Gloucestershire.
She believes that training should not just be a way to gain new skills and knowledge but it should also be a valuable opportunity to meet and interact with other practitioners and professionals; build relationships and to share good practise and support each other through what can be a challenging time.
