Learn how to take your dreams and make them into a fulfilling career!!! 

Michelle Hardy has been a birth professional for over 14 yrs.  She started her career as a volunteer doula assisting teen and low income women, and from that small start she has grown her business into a thriving organization.  

In 2010 she decided to switch from being a solo doula to running a non-profit organization.  At the time it was the first doula agency (organization) in Southeastern Wisconsin.  From the early beginnings of Mothering the Mother, Inc having only birth doulas Michelle has grown the organization to include:

  • birth doulas
  • postpartum doulas
  • lactation support
  • childbirth educators
  • perinatal fitness educators
  • parenting educators
  • prenatal care coordinators
  • ​prenatal yoga instructors
  • ​as well as having collaborations with chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and much more.


In addition to running her agency Michelle also trains and mentors individuals in the field.  To date she has trained and mentored 200 individuals as birth doulas, postpartum doulas, childbirth educators, in lactation support, as well as in creating a thriving birth business.  

As her passion and organization grew so did the needs of the group.  In 2014 she bought a building to house Mothering the Mother, Inc and in 2016 that building was sold to move into a better facility.  Her new facility has three classrooms, office space and a store.

Then in 2017, Michelle decided it was once again time to open her private business, Milwaukee Doulas where she offers childbirth education, birth and postpartum doula services, and lactation support.  She currently runs her private business as well as the non-profit organization she created.
