We had the most rewarding and fulfilling experience with Michele. Her training as a student midwife and her years of practice as a doula make her extremely knowledgeable, caring, and supportive. I recommend her to every pregnant friend I have.

Meet Michele

Michele Nizza

B.A. English, CD(DONA), CMT #66221,

I founded Mum’s the Word in January 2001.
Little did I realize how much supporting women and families would change my own life.  I have attended 300+ births thus far, each one vastly different from the previous one, and each one a learning experience for me.

My vision–to provide prenatal, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding support for mothers and families in my hometown of Monterey.

Services for Expecting Parents

For Parents

Please do not let finances get in the way of receiving the support that you need and want. Note that while I do have a baseline fee for all of my services and classes, I will offer a discounts, scholarships, and/or payment arrangements to those in need on a case by case basis. Please do not hesitate to ask how I can help you.

During our COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place orders, I am teaching online classes and offering virtual support services at half the price of my in-person classes and services.  Per my usual policy, if any pricing proves to be difficult for you, please let me know. No one will be turned away.

Please contact me at (831) 238-0655 (text or call) to schedule and register.
