About / Bio
Hi, my name is Morgan Hick, I’m a wife to my husband Josh and mother of three beautiful girls, Torah (6), Isla (4) and Jemima (1)

I come from a very large family and have been around babies my whole life. Before having my children I worked as an enrolled nurse in palliative and high care nursing homes. After having my first daughter Torah I was convinced I wanted to return to study to become a midwife, but just before giving birth to my second daughter Isla someone mentioned a doula and what they provide. After hearing exactly what the role if a doula was I felt it was my true calling.

I want to be able to support a family through the entire pregnancy process, the labour and continue to help after their baby is born, rather then just as the role of a midwife in the hospital. Because of my nursing background I have a high level of respect of medical staff and feel I can work along side them very well.

I am a qualified Doula through childbirth international. I feel extremely passionate about women making informed choices and achieving the birth that they want.  I feel that childbirth can be a very fulfilling moment and it should not be something to be feared but rather faced with excitment.
Testimonial
Having Morgan as a Doula was the best decision I made. She was there for every stress, every decision, and ever experience. Nothing was too difficult. She gave us piece of mind, and support in a time that did not go to plan, and I remember her as the positive experience in the whole ordeal. I didn’t just gain someone who was medically helpful , but also a friend and confident. My husband and I would recommend Morgan to anyone looking for a doula – Becky and  Brian

I’m so thankful for Morgan being present at the birth of my second child. My first birth was rather traumatic to me, and ended in a caesarean and I had a lot of fear approaching my second. Morgan gave me a safe place to process my feelings, and discuss extensively my desires and wishes for birth. It was a huge comfort going into labour with a friend who knew my birth plan, knew my strengths and weaknesses, and was truly by my side physically and emotionally. With her support I was able to bring my baby into the world in the manner I desired, and heal my heart a little from the trauma of my first birth. She completed a small but fantastic support team for my labour and birth, and I will be forever greatful for her support. – Michelle and Cam

The placenta capsules Morgan did for me were amazing. I suffered quite a bad blood loss during labour and I credit the capsules with my speedy recovery. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that they gave me increased energy at a time when I needed it most. I cannot recommend your service highly enough & I was a little bit sad when I reached the end of my little bottle of pills!!! Thank you so much. I will be back! – Megan
