I truly believe that having Emily as our doula following the birth of our twins made all the difference in my mental health and confidence as a new "twin mom". The thought of transitioning from a family with 2 kids to a family with 4 kids under the age of four was anxiety provoking to say the least. Emily's caring and thoughtful nature helped to ease this anxiety and make the transition easier on the whole family.

Emily is a pleasure to work with.  She is reliable, consistently showing up on time and making alternate arrangements ahead of time, should the schedule change. She is efficient, often anticipating the needs of the babies she works with, observing their cues and acting accordingly.

Emily is like a breath of fresh air when she comes into your home. I always felt less overwhelmed and more in control on the days she was with us.  Together we would pick up the pieces and get caught up with the pile up of housework that comes with having newborn twins. She helped without judgment and I always felt comfortable with her in my home.  During the first few weeks I was able to rest and shower more often then I normally would postpartum because I had the help from Emily. A nap and shower can make a world of difference for your mental health!

I would 100% recommend Emily as a postpartum doula and I truly believe the transition from 2 to 4 kids went smoothly because of her support and encouragement. She is a very smart, caring individual and the babies responded well to her calm demeanor. We couldn't have been more blessed!!

Emily was the doula for my daughter‘s birth. I was unsure if a doula would be right for me, but by the end of our first meeting, I had no doubt I wanted Emily to be part of my birth experience. My husband and I are very happy that we made the decision to have her there.  She was the ultimate support person both before and during delivery, not just for me but for him as well! He felt supported by Emily through the process which I believe enabled him to also be a stronger support for me.

Emily is very professional, knowledgeable and kind. She has great ideas and techniques for easing the process of labour and birth. She adapted easily to our situation as it changed unexpectedly. Having an extra pair of hands through that time was great and we felt very comfortable with her from our first meeting through to our post-birth follow up.

If we ever have another child, we will absolutely be asking Emily to be our doula again. I would recommend her to any pregnant person, with any birth plan.
