Michelle Freund
Birth Centers, Midwifery


Born and raised in sunny southern California, Michelle Freund grew up with four older siblings in a warm and loving home atmosphere.  When she completed school, she traveled and acquired a passion for the Hawaiian Islands where she met her husband.  They have been together for over 30 years and have raised two sons together.  Their family has grown to include the lovely wives of their two sons and two much admired grandsons.

Her interest in birth grew as her belly grew with the conception of their first born.  On a mission to help women have better birth experiences, Michelle began her midwifery training in 1990 and currently maintains a license to practice Midwifery in the state of California. She has attended women in childbirth for over 27 years and has caught well over a 1300 babies.

Michelle currently practices at Birth Matters, Inc. By providing counseling, education, and support, women and their partners are assisted in making choices that are best suited for their own emotional, physical, and spiritual convictions, during pregnancy, birth, and thereafter.  She is responsive to their needs and respects the intuition and dignity of each woman.  She is known for her gentle spirit and calming affect during a woman’s birth time.

When time permits, she loves to travel with her husband and usually explore the more tropical climates since they enjoy diving.  Organic gardening, bowling, and movie-going are some of her preferred pastimes and she considers herself a pretty good scrabble player.  Her philosophies are “love one another”, “forgive always” and, “when in doubt, don’t”. Her birth philosophy is “Mother Directed, Baby Protected, Birth Respected”.
