Dr. Elana interviews guest Dr. Michelle Hu, a pediatric audiologist, mother of 3 and is a wearer of bilateral cochlear implants. Michelle is an advocate for the DHH community - DHH stands for deaf/hard of hearing. This is a community we have not yet honored on our podcast, and we couldn’t have chosen a better guest than Dr. Michelle.

Michelle is the founder of Mama Hu Hears, a space for DHH individuals and their families to access resources and to provide a source of strength and hope for parent’s and children with hearing loss. She shares both personal and professional information to help raise DHH awareness, empower hearing parents raise strong and confident DHH children, and improve advocacy skills. 

Dr. Michelle recently launched her signature progam - “My Child has hearing loss, now what?” to help support parents who have children with a diagnosis of hearing loss navigate what to expect and most importantly feel EMPOWERED with their choices. 

This interview is not only for the DHH community… it is for anyone who wants to really learn what this community goes through so we can empathize better, know what to say and what to do when we meet a DHH individual. *And also know what NOT to say or do! Ultimately, we want you to feel more equipped to support parent’s and kiddos who are part of the DHH community.  

Topics Discussed:

  • What does DHH mean and what individuals are included as part of this community
  • Tips moms want to know when meeting DHH moms or moms with DHH children
  • What to avoid saying to DHH individuals 
  • How motherhood is effected by being a DHH mom
  • How to support the DHH community
  • Resources for parents with DHH children

Michelle Hu has been a pediatric audiologist for over 13 years working specifically with the diagnosis, hearing amplification, cochlear implant evaluation, programming and aural rehabilitation. Something unique about her is that she grew up hard of hearing herself. She was fit with hearing aids at 3 years and now utilizes bilateral cochlear implants.

Her personal experience lends to her uncanny ability to relate and be a role model for others with hearing loss and source of strength and hope for parents of children with hearing loss. She is the founder of Mama Hu Hears, a space for DHH individuals and their families. She shares both personal and professional information to help raise DHH awareness, empower hearing parents raise strong and confident DHH children and improve advocacy skills.
