About the founder
Bailey Michele was born in Decatur and raised in Snellville, GA. At the age of 21, she graduated from Georgia College and State University with a BBA in Accounting, then later graduated from Valdosta State University with her MBA with a concentration in international business, logistics and supply chain management. After graduation, she worked for an environmental and pharma company as their business process and production manager. During her years at the company, she implemented effective business practices and introduced a virtual learning customer experience; while also gaining her Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.
In September of 2019, her life completely changed when her best friend Crystal gave birth, and what she thought were a great three months, were nothing but times of loneliness for Crystal.
Her best friend told her about her postpartum experience. Bailey who had always been intrigued about the miracle of birth (lotus, delayed clamping, home births, placenta encapsulation, etc..) knew something needed to be done. It comes as no surprise, Bailey knew her best friend would have benefited from her placenta being encapsulated. Bailey researched encapsulation companies in Atlanta and found some companies, but they all looked creepy and did not give a nurturing vibe. After months of research and reading stories of how many birthing women have suffered in silence, Bailey knew this was something that needed to be done for all moms, but especially the moms that look like her; thus, Bailey created Peacefully Bumpin (servicing all of Georgia and willing to travel).
Bailey’s training began under Tracie Collins (Founder of National Black Doula Association). After her initial training, she earned both of her certifications – Bloodborne Pathogens and OSHA’s Safe Food Handling. As if this was not enough, Bailey continued her education to become a Doula. Everyday new discoveries happen, so the education never stops.
