Michele has broken their leg and after surgery (04/2018) will have several months of recovery. While they’ll most likely still be available for Skype consults in about a month (05/2018), they will be unable to accept any homebirth or well care clients until probably the end of 2018/early 2019 (this timeline might get updated, as things move along).
Michele highly recommends that you reach out to Karen and Natalie of Steel City Midwives if you are needing a homebirth midwife before Michele is recovered enough and ready to accept clients again.
Thanks in advance for your well wishes and support <3
