I’m Amy and I live with my husband, two boys, and dog in Oceanside. We love to be together, go on adventures, and have movie nights!
I am a trained postpartum doula and work to make sure that families are supported during their postpartum experience. I am there to support all family members: Mom, Dad, older siblings, grandparents, or whoever else is around and in the home during the time after a new baby is welcomed into a family. I prepare light meals, do baby laundry, household organization, grocery errands, baby related errands and much more. I am there to be a mother-figure to the family and provide them with the comfort and support that they deserve. I strive to ensure that Mom is getting plenty of rest and comforting foods so that she can recovery her body and mind. I do not perform medical tasks, however I have a lot of local resources so that I can make appropriate referrals to other sources if necessary. My ultimate goal is to work myself out of the job so that the family is fully confident to independently care for each other.

Hanna's Momma Snacks started as soon as I began my journey as a new mom. I had never been so starving than being up every few hours and breastfeeding my son. I started making my momma snacks for the middle of the night and early morning feedings so I could eat something fresh, healthy and nutritious. One of the best parts is that you can eat momma snacks straight out of the freezer or take them with you while you're out and about. They are also beneficial for nursing mothers as the two main ingredients are oats and almonds. Now, as a working mom I find that my momma snacks save me at any hour of the day while I'm on the go. Every mom in any chapter of motherhood needs a batch of Momma Snacks in their home!

Picture this: You’re on the floor in your house, sitting, perched up against a kitchen cabinet. You’re probably crying. You have everything that everyone tells you to have. A perfect partner, a 9-5 job that is financially supporting, a home you can call your own… but somehow you’re here… on the floor. Wondering how in the world you got here & wanting to escape it all.
Maybe you were here at some point in your life, maybe you’re here right now, or maybe your just about to get to this point.
This was me 12 years ago. It was in that moment I realized I was not living my passions and was shying away from my power. That’s when I decided to make the jump, the jump into we call this thing “entrepreneurship”.
From there I leapt into wedding coordinating, event production, custom furniture making, florals and catering. I even took my catering business on the water for a while, working on private Yachts. As soon as I took the jump, life opened up, gifting me with the skills, experience, and motivation I needed to create the life of my dreams!
Here’s where Hatched Collective comes in… I realized there were other women sitting on the floor wondering why they didn’t feel fulfilled. I decided to leap again, opening Hatched Collective and launching Coffee + Conversations.
Hatched Collective is a community of women who come together to help bring each other’s dreams to life. What these women have in common is an inner drive to pursue what it is that makes them happy. They have big ideas and value working in a collaborative space with other entrepreneurs. The power of women who come together to support each other equals an unstoppable power house.
Coffee + Conversations is the gathering of this community, where we create a safe space for female entrepreneurs to share their story, support one another, and feel inspired by other women’s stories.
No matter what stage of your business you are at ( been in business for 5, 10, 20 years, just starting out, or just hatched an idea) I am here to support you.

Kayla's passion is fueled by creating, educating and empowering women through the most magical and life altering transition to motherhood! She has always had a passion for serving women and has been lucky enough to do so by integrating experience as a medical professional with holistic practices. For the past 9 years Kayla has supported women as a Registered Labor & Delivery and Neonatal ICU Nurse.

Most recently, Kayla became a Certified Prenatal Yoga Instructor to further educate and empower women throughout their pregnancy and birth through holistic and mindful living. In Labor and Delivery, she gets to celebrate birthdays every single day! What most people aren't aware of is she is also given the opportunity to care for and hold space for mamas who are having the worst day of their lives. This is how Wounded Womb came to fruition. This workshop was created for the grieving mama, to facilitate healing their womb after the loss of their baby through movement and pranayama (breathing). When she isn't hustlin', you can find Kayla wandering around the world from sea to summit, watching the sunset, immersing herself in different cultures and snuggling babies! She lives in a mermaid cottage by the sea, snuggle her pittie Boomer, loves to laugh, spend time with family and lives off of Mexican Coca Cola (in moderation now) and naps!
