My Journey

Family Focused

Hi! I'm Hayley (She/ her). My journey into birth work began after the homebirth of my daughter in 2014. Such a magical, transforming experience! I knew I found my calling- motherhood and birth. I have been serving families throughout the childbearing years ever since! I attended my first birth as a doula in March 2015 and soon after that, began attending births as the student midwife.

I am committed to providing inclusive and caring support to families in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas.

I have been honored to get to know, support, and learn from many families around the metro and rural areas here in Minnesota and some Wisconsin families too! I love working with all families as they welcome a new addition and being a witness to the empowerment that comes along with that. I trust birth and work to encourage parents to be involved in the decisions that are made surrounding the childbearing year with education and intuition. 

Let's meet!
