Meet Abbey

Mind, Body, Babies is owned by Abbey Hall, who has been a doula since 2008.

Abbey decided to become a doula after having such a positive birth experience after hiring a birth doula to support her first birth in 2007. She then trained through DONA International in 2008, and completed her certification by 2011. She is currently pursuing additional certifications, including hypno-doula through Hypnobabies, placenta encapsulation, and lactation. In the meantime, She makes a point to educate herself and stay current in the field by attending a number of annual conferences, trainings, and staying active in local groups.
