Beth Schieber

Emily was more than amazing as my doula! My husband and I felt so supported by her during the birth, but also before and after. She was so good about emailing, texting and calling me to answer my every question and offer insight that calmed my fears as a first time mom. She helped me go from nervous and intimidated to calm and onfident as I anticipated my birth. Emily also sent me invaluable resources that helped me have a more comfortable last few months of pregnancy and faster labor. She has a natural soothing ability and wisdom that really make her a great doula. Emily loves being a doula and genuinely cares for each mother/family she works with. My husband, daughter and I were so happy we found Emly!

Emily was with my husband and I the entire morning before the birth of our baby. My anxiety was high while awaiting my impending scheduled c-section. Emily was extremely supportive and kept me laighing the entire time we waited. She was there for us throughout the c-section and saw us to our hospital room. She has been very caring and supportive in my post partum days offering to watch our other children or come clean for us. We would highly recommend Emily to anyone searching out a quality doula service!
