Meet the Team

Morgan West, LM, CPM

Morgan is a California-licensed midwife and the founder of Hummingbird Midwifery. She believes that every family deserves skilled and compassionate support to have a healthy and empowered birth.

Before becoming a midwife, she earned her B.S. in Neuroscience from Lafayette College. She has studied maternal and child healthcare in seven countries and received her early training as a midwife at a high-volume birth center in Indonesia, where she gained a reverence for women’s innate strength and resilience in birth.

Upon moving to Berkeley, she practiced midwifery at a local birth center and in a group homebirth practice before founding Hummingbird Midwifery.

She’s on a mission to create powerful experiences of health and wellbeing for growing families across the Bay Area, integrating her new studies of herbal medicine and birth trauma healing with her work as a midwife.

Evaly discovered midwifery in 2007 while listening to a segment about midwives on the local public radio station. That was enough to set her on the path to becoming a midwife. She would also learn that homebirth had been a family affair with her mom and four siblings being born at home in Mexico con una Partera (a midwife), and her dad and two siblings born at home in South Carolina. Over three years Evaly apprenticed at Sage Femme Birth Center in San Francisco, with Tres Lunas Midwifery homebirth practice, and Pacifica Family Maternity Center in Berkeley. Along the way Evaly and her husband welcomed their twin daughters, now ten years old, at St Luke’s Hospital, and their son in December 2014, born at home.

Evaly is most excited to help families build their knowledge and confidence through resources, information and building community. She believes that midwives are one bridge between marginalized communities and safe, respectful healthcare in part because of their mutual relationship built on trust. When all people can be heard and cared for together we will all be free and confident together.
