Morgan Forrester, MSW
- Certified Birth Doula
- Professional Social Worker
- Postpartum Doula
- Placenta Encapsulation Specialist
Morgan is a nurturing and compassionate partner to all of her clients, providing a strong and steady presence. Morgan’s love for maternal & child health existed before she even had the words to describe her passion. From an early age, she has been drawn to providing support to families and children. This ultimately led Morgan to the field of Social Work. For the past 4 years, Morgan has worked with families, children birth-5, and the medical community in a variety of capacities as a professional social worker.
With the recent birth of her niece, Morgan was provided the opportunity to support her sister through pregnancy and birth. This experience, along with her faith, is what ignited the flame to pursue becoming a professional doula. As a trained social worker, and Christian, she utilizes her spiritual gifts and professional skillset to support women, partners, families, and children. Because she has been able to turn her passions and gifts into a career, Morgan never feels like she is actually doing work when supporting others as a doula or social worker.
Morgan obtained her Bachelors of Social Work from the University of Louisville in Louisville, KY and her Masters of Social Work from the University of North Carolina. She is a Certified ProDoula Labor Doula, as well as a trained Postpartum Doula and Placenta Encapsulation Specialist. Morgan is excited to provide physical, emotional, and educational support to families in the triangle. Her approach to birth is free of judgment and focused on helping the laboring mother find the path that suits her needs. Morgan loves to empower women and their partners by helping them make educated choices and to rely on their own intuition during pregnancy, birth and life.
After growing up in Kentucky, Morgan moved to North Carolina in 2014 and now lives in Raleigh with her dog, Nova. In her downtime, she loves working out, reading, perusing antique stores, volunteering at church, exploring the Triangle, and enjoying Netflix. Her faith, friends, and family are the most important thing in her life.
