Hello! I am Haley Manning.
I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula, certified through Parenting Resources Professional Network.
Trained Birth Doula and Certified Postpartum Doula since August 2016.
Certified Birth Doula since January 2017.
I am also CPR, BLS and NRP certified.
I have always loved working with families, I have a big family and I was a childcare provider for most of my life. It wasn't until after I had my son in 2014 that I realized the impact of birth work and decided, undoubtedly, that this is what I want to do. Working with families, right from the start, to support them through the experience they desire. I provide unwavering, nonjudgmental, informational, emotional, and physical support to the families I serve.
I've been married to my husband since 2010 and we have one child. My husband and I both grew up in Massachusetts and after years of moving around while Rob served as an active duty military member, we slowly settled back to civilian life. Although we miss the ocean, we fell in love with St Louis and moved to Clayton MO in 2015. When I am not providing Doula services, I enjoy spending time with loved ones, getting out in nature, creating art, enjoying music, and continuing my perinatal education.
I became a doula because I want to empower families and help improve pregnancy, birthing, postpartum, and early childhood for future generations.
