When we met Emma we knew right away that we wanted to hire her. She has very trusting eyes and is easy to talk to. We never felt rushed when talking to her. This enabled us to take our time with questions we had as well as think outloud and have her guide us in our decision making. Emma met with us at our home pre-labor as a "check in" and went through relaxation techniques. She showed us hand and foot massages and helped us make our birth plan. What makes Emma so special and unique to us as a doula is specifically in how she approached us as her clients. She used verbaige such as "it sounds like what you are saying is." We appreciated this because as first time parents we didnt know what questions to ask or what to expect in labor. Emma was also available 24/7 to answer our calls and texts. This may seem like a standard thing for doulas, but for Emma she would respond very quickly and this was something we really valued.
When it came time to our actual birth experience, when my husband reached out to Emma she had just left another birth. This did not inhibit her from making time to check in with us every hour. Emma used essential oils at our house and put on some music as she started coaching me through each contraction. She also suggested a walk and taking a bath. Emma never took the focus and attention off of us as her clients. She used different techinques for counter pressure that worked well for me and in times when she knew I just needed by husband she would quietly stand nearby to make sure everything was okay.
Post birth, Emma encapsulated my placenta as well as made smoothies and truffles. They are the best truffles I have ever had! I cant speak more highly of this amazing woman. If you’re considering hiring a doula for your birth look no further than Emma. She is the best of the best and will provide everything you could need for a peaceful birth experience.
From the moment I reached out to Emma in regards to the services I was looking for she was so kind, helpful, informative & professional. Emma always responded quickly to any questions I had whether it was via email or text. I used Emma for placenta encapsulation. My son was born right before a big snow storm making it challenging for the pick up & delivery of the placenta & then tinctures but Emma was fabulous & personally delivered to my house after I had my baby. For baby #2, I’ll definitely be using Emma’s services as well! I highly highly recommend.
Emma was amazing! I texted her when my active labor started then again when my beautiful daughter made her appearance and she was there in less than 2 hours. Which is amazing because we are separated by about an hour and a half. I never felt uncomfortable or embarassed to ask any questions and Emma always made me feel comfortable advocating for myself. I wish I could share a picture of my print, it is beautiful. I also got the placenta capsules & cord keepsake. Very very very very happy with the outcome
