Birth Fee: $850

Postpartum Rate: $25 to $30

Fee Details: I am a certified DoulaBuilders doula, and trained through both DONA & ProDoula. I also continue to expand my doula knowledge with constant research and continuous education classes. I am here to help you have a smooth and informed pregnancy, labor/delivery, and postpartum period. For postpartum, I’m more than happy to work day shifts, but I love helping with overnights. I come over in the evening and get the baby settled in while you get ready for bed. Then, I stay up all night and watch/care for your baby. I can bring them in to you to nurse, or give them a bottle depending on your preference. I have also had the privilege of working with several families of twins and always enjoy it so much. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge, tips, and training on how to care for multiples during what can be such a chaotic time! Finally, my business operates as an incorporated LLC in the state of Missouri and is fully insured to put your mind at ease. Email me today to schedule a free consultation!

Katherine Roush

I used Morgan for postpartum services and she was an absolute lifesaver - I couldn’t wait for her to get to my house! My daughter was quite difficult as a newborn and Morgan spent countless nights sitting up with her. When Emma refused to sleep, Morgan held her (which meant Morgan held her 80% if the time). It was such a gift to be able to hand Emma off to Morgan and know that she would be well taken care of. I didn’t even feel any “mom-guilt” handing over my fussy baby because Morgan seemed to actually enjoy taking care of her! She never once made me feel like Emma was “too much”. One early morning when Emma was in a rare good mood, she even took a little photo shoot so I didn’t miss her little smiles! 

Morgan is truly amazing! She is patient, hard-working and extremely dedicated. I’m honestly not sure I would have made it through Emma’s newborn phase without her!

I am so incredibly thankful for Morgan. After being released from the hospital, we ended up in the NICU with our baby. Once we got out, we needed monitoring through the night. Someone suggested we get a Doula and along came Morgan. Quickly after meeting her, we knew she would be a great fit. She helped us get through a really tough time having gone days without sleep and another little one at home to take care of.

Having a baby with some health issues was extremely hard, there were a lot of unknowns. I don't think my husband or I would have made it physically or mentally had she not been here for us. We could not be more thankful for her and the peace she gave us. Our baby is now thriving and we couldn't be more happy having found Morgan when we did.

Morgan is extremely knowledgeable and helpful in answering questions. She was extremely patient and loving to our baby, making quite a wonderful experience. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a doula!

Morgan is a wonderful doula. She helped me during my first month postpartum with my 3 year old son and newborn. She is easy to get along with, always willing to help out with what I needed done that day, and is great with children (and dogs). My toddler loved having her around, and always looked forward to her visits. I would definitely reccomend her.

Morgan is an outstanding doula. She is naturally gifted with babies, and she helped me with my twin newborns with the utmost confidence and care. She is supportive and kind and very easy to be around. She was also very helpful with my 2 year old son. The whole family loved her, and I would without a doubt hire her again.

Simply put, Morgan is amazing. The amount of determination and confidence she continued to bring throughout my girlfriend forst pregnancy, which lasted over 12 hours, was inspiring. Her knowledge and her energy kept both my girlfriend and I confident that our first birth was going to be amazing and most of our fear was whittled away with her at our side. She persevered throughout the night, coming to our every need and answering all our concerns and if she didnt have the answer, she made sure the hospital staff gave us our answers. To us, Morgan was an integral part of our life changing memory and I hope those of you who have your first child, or have birth complications or just simply want the best support by your side during that beautiful time of your lives choose Morgan to be by your sides every step of the way. She will not let you down.

Morgan is an outstanding  doula  and I highly recommend her. She was my doula for my second pregnancy. I had a doula for my first pregnancy but upon comparing the two experiences, Morgan went far beyond what I had expected. She was very informative, and explained/showed me many useful techniques from pain management to helpful positions  during  delivery. She even helped my husband to get involved by showing him pain management techniques as well. My first labor experience made me nervous about how hard labor would be for a second time,  but pain was very minimal and I  give credit to Morgan for that. I do think it would not have been the experience it was without her. She not only knows what she's doing but is also very sweet and friendly. She is altogether an amazing asset to her profession!

Morgan was a big help to both my wife and me. Having her there took the stress out off of me so I could be there for my wife. Morgan was informative and was able to explain things so we were all on the same page.
