REPRODUCTIVE COACHING
&
BIRTHWORKER MENTORING

 

Do you have questions you would like a midwife to answer? Do you want a second (or third) opinion? Are you in need of a sounding board? Are you a newer birthworker and seeking a mentor? Do you require help writing a birth plan? Applying for social services and require a proof of pregnancy letter?

 

Health & Reproductive Coaching
Information and education regarding holistic health, perinatal care options, mindfulness, stress reduction, herbalism, and self-managed healthcare options.
 

Frame of Reference: Michele ("Misha") has been providing midwifery & well-person care since 1998, community & folk herbalism since 2003, inclusive sex & sexuality education since 2015, and peer counselling since 2000. Their care is evidence & trauma-informed and rooted in bodily & cognitive autonomy, nonviolent communication, and somatic processing.

Birthworker Mentoring

Together we can explore your pathway options to becoming a birthworker, engage in peer review & chart review, discuss how to establish partnerships with other birthworkers, inclusive practices, mediation with clients, conflict resolution, and restorative justice. 

Misha is a traditional community midwife of over two decades, community & folk herbalist, inclusive sex & sexuality education teacher, Jewish & Humanist/secular chaplain, former substance use & victim survivor peer-counsellor, social & health advocate, and radical unschooling parent of two ('03 & '16). They identify as queer, transgender nonbinary/genderqueer, fat, disabled, autistic, Romani, & Mizrahi. More about Misha here.

You are here because you want to talk about what is on your mind. Let us schedule time together to address your needs.

We can meet virtually or in-person, depending on the nature of our meeting.

Virtual meetings are typically done via Google Meet.

In-person consultations are reserved for proof of pregnancy letters ONLY, since this can only be done in-person. These meetings are usually done at the client’s home. Meeting at an alternative location, like a friend’s home, can also be arranged.

 

COVID-19 POLICY: Masks REQUIRED for anyone present aged 5 years old and up, regardless of vaccination status. The appointment MUST BE rescheduled if the client or Misha has any symptoms, or if anyone in the client's or Misha's home or direct-care & contact has symptoms.

Before each visit (if applicable), you will answer some questions regarding your general health, about specific concerns/complaints you have, or about what is keeping you up at night. When applicable, visits are followed up by an email (within 48 hours of the end of the visit) with notes taken during the visit, links to additional information/resources as available, and any care plans/suggestions explained, if necessary. Most of our time together allows me to gather information to then make the best recommendations possible based on that information.
