Michelle Stroud has been a Holistic Health Practitioner since 2001, starting her training in reflexology with the Ontario College of Reflexology and moving on to specialize in fertility, pregnancy, birth and postpartum, energy healing and doula support.
Completing trainings with the Healing Arts Learning Organization (now Doula Canada), Usui Reiki Master Teacher Shawn Rashotte, the International Institute of Reflexology, Dancing for BirthTM, Spinning Babies, Access Conciousness and more.
Michelle has been developing curriculum for years, both for her own programs and for other organizations. She has trained students from all over Canada, the United States and abroad to be doulas, Reiki workshops, Energy Healing for Fertility, Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum, Placenta Encapsulation, Advanced Comfort Measures for Birth, Prenatal Yoga, and a variety of retreats.
Some of Michelle's own doula students have gone on to not just have successful doula businesses, but are doula trainers or manage the doula training organization Michelle previously helped to develop and grow.
After years of contributing to the curriculum of, teaching and marketing a successful conventional national doula training organization, Michelle had to follow her path to develop a holistic program that included all of the modalities that Michelle uses in her practice with her clients, a program that is true to the holistic nature of her work.
The Holistic Reproductive Practitioner training program is a culmination of more than 19 years of learning, teaching and working with clients both in the session room and at births. Michelle also brings a wealth of knowledge from her own experiences in healing, growth, struggle and transformation using a variety of techniques and modalities.
Her passion is contagious and her desire for others to find success and abundance through fulfilling work that supports others in their growth and healing is obvious.
Developer and Instructor of the By the Moon Holistic Reproductive Practitioner training program.
