Morgan HughesEarly Care Director
- Practicing since: 2017
- Early Care
Morgan’s journey to midwifery began during her undergraduate studies. What inevitably brought her to the doorstep of community-based midwifery was the idea that the birthing experience can be a highly personal and social event, her empathy for diverse human experiences, and the simple belief that health care should be holistic.
Morgan has worked with Friends of Michigan Midwives to further state licensure efforts, volunteered at MomsBloom in Michigan to aid parents in the day-to-day life of the immediate postpartum period, and offered birth doula and placenta encapsulation services to her communities. She is a Licensed Midwife in Washington State, a Certified Professional Midwife through the North American Registry of Midwives, and a professional member of the Midwives' Association of Washington State (MAWS).
Morgan believes that pregnancy is a transitional and vulnerable time where people deserve to be treated with the utmost respect, sensitivity, and love. She has supported hundreds of families through the childbearing year and has attended births in homes, birth centers, and hospitals. Morgan’s clients would describe her as compassionate, non-judgmental, easygoing, and attentive. She strives to ensure that the intentional care she provides makes a lifelong effect on her clients.
