My goal is to guide parents to raise happy, healthy, children. I have been happily married for over three decades to my husband, and together we have a beautiful daughter and wonderful son. I have been in the field as a postpartum doula/parent educator for over 20 years. I am looking forward to blessing children and parents for many years to come.
I first met Michelle Helm on October 11, 2002. I had came home from the hospital with my first-born son. I was like a deer in the headlights with no clue whatsoever on how to sustain the life of an infant, and Michelle made everything wonderful. By the time I had completed my time with her I had given my baby his first bath, put him on a great feeding schedule, and had him swaddled and sleeping peacefully. Four kids and six years later, I found out that I was expecting twins. The thought of four kids ages seven, five, four, and three plus twin newborns was a bit daunting, so I called Michelle again. She literally was a godsend. I don't know what I would have done without her. In the midst of complete and utter chaos she brought a peace to our home. She helped me put the twins on a perfect eat, wake, sleep schedule throughout the day. Because of their perfect life during the day, they were happy, sweet, and healthy and sleeping through the night at six weeks old. When I would tell this to people who inquired about my little twins, they were astonished. Michelle became our parenting expert and we would talk a lot about family and parenting, and the best way to manage a large family with children so close together in age. Michelle has been with me throughout milestones with my kids. Her knowledge of children and family life was a treasured gift. She has had a wealth of knowledge helping me with my older kids and giving me discipline tips. My three-year-old had a very strong-willed personality. Michelle coached me through showing me how to be consistent and kind and she shined a great light on my daughters personality and showed me that her temper and frustration were actually her need for control, which then helped me to parent her successfully. If every family could have a little “Michelle Wisdom” on a regular basis, the world would be a happier place!
Michelle is the BABY WHISPERER!! She has helped us through many different struggles with our recent baby. We first called her when he was about 4 months old, because of his constant waking up at night and not really feeding, just waking… within TWO days he was sleeping through the night! I know all babies are not the same, but we were pleasantly surprised! We called again for help, when he was 10 months old. After two or three months of health issue after health issue, his sleep hit a roadblock. After our 1 hour conversation, she immediately identified the issue, gave us a new game plan and believe it or not, by the afternoon of following this new plan, our son was sleeping through his nap cycle again! She has helped us tremendously. Our first son didn’t have any sleep issues, so I never thought I would need any help with our second child, but each child is different, and I thank God I found Michelle as a resource! She also had some great tips on foods to try, ways to try them, etc. Don’t hesitate to give her a call! She is worth every penny, and is quick to identify the problem and get an immediate plan in place.
My experience with Michelle started soon after my oldest daughter was born. Not only was my daughter sleeping through the night way before I thought possible, but perhaps more importantly Michelle was a much-needed support, sounding board, and wealth of knowledge for a terrified new parent. As time went on, Michelle worked with our second child and then stuck by our side to advise on parenting and discipline techniques for both of our children. She was always available to answer my many questions and to be a listening ear, offering sound and instructive feedback. Both my husband and I highly recommend her services.
Michelle is worth every penny and more. As a new mom I was so overwhelmed by what to do and how to do it. It was so nice to just surrender from all the opinions and options and just focus on executing her protocols. Which work! My son slept for 10 hours straight the FIRST night on her program. He slept for at least 10 hours every night from then on. He was 6 weeks when we started, he is 3.5 years now. He has never once had a sleep regression and is very consistent with his sleep. All of this is thanks to Michelle’s program and guidance. The best gift you can give a new Mom is sleep. Without sleep her hormones will struggle, her energy, her emotions, her post birth healing etc. It was worth its price x 10. Thank you Michelle!
Michelle is a godsend, and is my go-to for child/infant sleep and behavioral solutions. As a new Mom, I read so many books on sleep, but with lots of conflicting information and methods I was a totally confused as to how to approach sleep training. Michelle first consulted for our daughter Scarlett, who at 4.5 months old was waking almost every hour to hour and a half at night. After our sleep consult, I implemented her schedule and protocol and within 1 day, Scarlett was sleeping 11 hours at night and was on a solid nap schedule. Then once we switched Scarlett to her toddler bed, and was consistently getting out of bed at night, Michelle guided us through a sleep and behavioral plan to get her to stay in her bed. Our very strong willed little girl was sleeping through the night within a week.
Most recently she coached us through a schedule and protocol for our 6 week old daughter Annie. Within a week Annie was on a solid sleep schedule. Michelle knows babies and children! She has a god given gift for assessing infants and children and giving their parents the best plan and knowledge to help their children become independent sleepers. Michelle gave us the gift of sleep after so many sleepless nights, and I am eternally grateful.
Michelle has changed our lives as new parents. From immediately catching a milk protein allergy in our newborn, to helping me with his feeding schedule, to assisting with his sleep schedule, she has made becoming a new parents a breeze. There is no price that can be put on a happy baby/child and happy parents . . . she is worth every dollar. My child is now 9 months old and we can't wait to schedule our disciplinary consult! I feel like a pro and have so much confidence knowing I have Michelle by my side!
