Emily is amazing! I could tell right away this job means so much to her and she is so caring. She was available for questions through my pregnancy and she was so helpful the day my daughter was born, I can’t imagine not having her there for support! Then after, she was there to help make sure nursing was going well. I plan to have Emily at all my future births! She is so knowlegable and honestly everything you would want in a doula!

Emily was an amazing support to me before my son’s birth, during a complicated labor/delivery, as well as postpartum! I would recommend her services to anyone!

Emily is amazing! She answers all of my questions thoroughly and answered my middle of the night phone calls. It’s a comforting feeling knowing I had an experienced, confident, and compassionate doula by my side from my second trimester through my postpartum!


Emily is the best!

I’m a Midwife and have worked with Emily in a professional capacity for the last 5 years.
Emily is the only area Doula will refer to, due to her extensive knowledge that comes from working in birth settings for over 20 years. She is less than 1 year away from graduating to a Primary Midwife and this additional Midwifery knowledge gives her an edge on other Doulas and allows her to understand and work with the medical team, in a much more in-depth manor.
In short, Emily is kind, competent and evidence driven. You can’t go wrong with her care and support in the childbearing year.
