Amber- CPM, LM
Owner/Director of Mindful Birthing Green Bay LLC
Amber has four children of her own and has been in birth work for 10 years. She started out as a birth doula and childbirth educator after the birth of her first baby. After she became a student through the Midwest Maternal Child Institute (MMCI), she moved on to become a perinatal educator and lactation support person.
In 2017 she completed the Certified Professional Midwife program through MMCI and graduated with an Associates degree in Midwifery in 2018. Amber earned her credentials in early 2019 after completing the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) portfolio evaluation process (PEP) and officially opened Mindful Birthing Green Bay LLC.
Previous to her path to midwifery, Amber graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Cross Cultural Health with an emphasis on Birth (Independent Major) and an Anthropology minor in 2011 from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
As your care provider, Amber is there to provide unbiased information and emotional support that benefits birthing people and families during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

Marissa- Advanced Student Midwife
Marissa and her family moved to Wisconsin from Kanas in 2020. She already knew in her teenage years that motherhood and midwifery care was where she was meant to be. Her first birth was to a premature baby and this is what truly started her on the journey to birth work and finding her gift of mentoring others. Marissa was also able to have an HBAC (Home Birth After Cesarean) in 2021 with her second baby.
Marissa is a certified birth & bereavement doula, baby wearing educator, and is currently a student midwife at Southwest Technical college! Additionally, she spent a year completing a midwife assistant training program and attending births as an assistant.
Jessica- Student Midwife & Birth Doula
We'd like to introduce you to our in house birth doula, and now student midwife, Jessica! Jessica has been married to her amazing husband for the last 14 years and is a proud mom of five children! In 2016 she started classes to become a birth doula and after time off for her own babies she started working full-time as a doula in 2021.
Jessica knew that at some point she wanted to become a midwife and started learning with local midwives while attending their clients as a birth doula. Jessica is so excited to be moving forward in her path to midwifery as a student midwife!
Lindsey- Student Midwife & Doula
We'd like to introduce one of our new student midwives, Lindsey! Lindsey is a student midwife at SWTC and a birth and postpartum doula. She lives in Green Bay with her five wonderful children; three girls and two boys. In her free time she loves gardening and tending to her plants and her family loves going camping and being outdoors. Lindsey’s love for the birth world came shortly after her first daughter was born and from that moment on she knew she wanted to help women feel empowered by having a voice in their birth. “Don’t wait for the storms to pass, learn how to dance in the rain." -unknown
