My love and passion for birth work came after my own 4 very individual birth experiences, along with attending the births of friends and family members' babies. I began to recognize that there was something truly amazing that occurred when women were given the support and education to be empowered as birthing mothers! When these mothers, and parents, were given the tools they needed to make educated choices, that were right for them, they were also given the power to shape their birth stories in a way that was their own. I have a special place in my heart for first time parents navigating their options and helping new families get started on their journey to parenthood!
“Although the popularly desired outcome is ‘healthy mother, healthy baby,’ I think there is more room in that equation for ‘happy non-traumatized, empowered and elated mother and baby."

Emily is incredible! She was my doula for my second pregnancy. She was there for me 24/7 to ease my anxiety, provide non bias information, and support me and my husband through labor.
She comforted me and showed my husband how to comfort me through labor which was very important to us. Any family would be lucky to have her as their Doula!
