Hello, Beautiful Lady!
My name is Michelle Perrigo and I am a birthing consultant to plus size ladies! I came upon this journey nearly five years ago when I had my first home birth as a plus size lady. I went on to have a second home birth, only this time it was a water birth. From my experiences, I knew that I wanted to help others, like myself, when it came to pregnancy and labor. I have learned so much in the past five years, things that I didn’t know were even possible when I had my first baby at the age of 19. There are many things that we just go along with because that’s just how it’s done.
What I found is that there are more ways than one to approach pregnancy and labor. There are more ways than just the Lamaze way to handling active labor. There are also many ways to approach prenatal care. I have a passion for sharing my knowledge with other plus size ladies. Your size doesn’t have to mean you aren’t able to experience a calm home birth or a calm hospital birth with little to no interventions.
I want you to know that you are not alone! There are many plus size ladies, like yourself, having home births, VBACS, unmedicated hospital births, as well as gentle c-sections.
