✶ 3 month postpartum meeting to connect you with resources for parenting past the newborn stage and finding your new normal. We close our container and mark the end of our time together.
✶ A personalized birth vignette that powerfully captures a moment from your birth. Like this one.

What is a doula?
What does doula support look like?
What are the benefits of working with a doula?
Are doulas just for home births?
I plan to get an epidural, could a doula still help me?
Yes! As a doula I fully support unmedicated and medicated births. A doula will make sure you're informed and prepared for birth and the postpartum period. Once you have the epidural, your doula will help you change positions to labor in bed using peanut balls and bed settings and making sure you are as comfortable as possible. Your doula will also be there for emotional support and guidance during pushing and in the postpartum period.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
This doula is a true gift to babies and birthing people everywhere. I am Emmy's biggest fan and have recommended her to anyone on the path of conception, pregnancy, birth, or loss. She is wonderful.
JESSICA / BIRTH
Emmy is an absolutely amazing doula. She was recommended by a friend when I had to be readmitted the second night home from the hospital. She put my family at ease with her overnight care of our 4 day old son. Since then, she has been an incredible member of our "village" - we've learned that it takes a village! She is a calm, positive presence in our home and our son gets excited to see her. She takes the time to check-in with me and my husband. She has been a wonderful resource on a variety of topics. When he and I disagree on an issue (sleep training, feeding, swaddling, etc.) she has been thoughtful, impartial, and a great ally as we navigated new parenthood. If I could give her more stars I would!!
MEAGAN / POSTPARTUM
Emmy is a profound and compassionate healer with a medley of tools and teachings at her disposal. She has the unique ability to hone in on the roots of issues while also holding immense space for gentle navigation of healing.
