Tina Morton, CD, CPD
Birth & Postpartum Doula, Evidence Based Birth® Instructor
After being enthralled with the birth processes of her own children's births, Tina set out on a journey to assure birthing women unconditional support during their birth experiences. She truly believes that there is a right birth for every expecting mother, and that being presented with wholehearted, unbiased support and education will leave a lasting positive impact on the lives of both mother and baby. Aside from having three of her own children to have given her the most valuable maternity, birth and postpartum experience possible, Tina has received extensive professional, vocational and practical training via ProDoula and CAPPA to prepare her as a birth and postpartum doula. She is also an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor and loves to empower families with evidence based care information, offering workshops to families and birth professionals alike. In addition, Tina has a Master's Degree in the education field and over 12 years of Early Childhood education under her belt. Tina lives in the west suburbs of Chicago with her husband, three boys, and big black lab. When she's not thinking or talking about birth, she enjoys reading and spending time outside with her family.
Kelsey Haliti, AAHCC
Birth & Postpartum Doula, Bradley Method® Instructor
Kelsey has always had a passion for supporting others. After graduating with her Bachelors in Psychology from North Central College, she and her husband found out they were expecting their first baby. It was through her personal experience of pregnancy, birth and postpartum that she found her calling in birth work. The validation that proper education and reliable support are crucial during one of the most important events in the lives of new families has been her driving force. She trained and certified with The Bradley Method® to become a natural childbirth educator and birth doula, and has since also trained with ProDoula. In addition to having top quality training experience in the birth industry, Kelsey also has personal experiences in multiple birth options and scenarios. Her knowledge of, and passion for, all things pregnancy, birth and postpartum stem from years of professional and personal involvement in the birth work world. Kelsey lives in the southwest suburbs of Chicago with her husband, two children, and German shepherd. Aside from motherhood and all things birth, she enjoys dabbling in photography and leading a holistic lifestyle.
