Fee Details: I am committed to ensuring that everyone has access to great care. Therefore, if finances are tight, I am happy to consider a lower rate.
Birth Doula Experience: 1 years and 10 births attended
We are extremly happy we had Emily with us during the beautiful birth of our son Sam!
She is relaxed, very knowlegdeable, decisive when necessary, a great listener, and accommodated to all our wishes. We were new to the American health system regarding child birth, and she helped us navigate it flawlessly. She didn't push her own ideas and gave excellent tips that matched our needs throughout the whole process, from writing our birth plan through the birth to the first postpartum hours.
During the birth at the hospital she helped to focus on my breathing and gave excellent massages!
An additional big plus, she is great with kids and our 1-yr old daughter loved her! Emily has a warm and relaxed character and we highly recommend her as a doula!
Emily was a great help during my pregnancy and delivery. She provided the support I needed and answered all of my many questions during the third trimester. She was especially sensitive when I went into labor, helping in just the right way. She was a calm and reassuring presence when I was uncertain, giving suggestions and encouragement when I needed it. She also allowed my husband to assist me so we could go through the labor as a couple, stepping in when I needed Emily instead. She seemed to sense the right timing for these transitions without being asked. It was comforting to know she was advocating for my interests at the hospital and also gave me information about what was going on in a way that I could understand. She kept detailed notes about all of the events during labor, which I found really interesting to reflect on. I also asked her to take pictures and now we have excellent photos to remember the time. I can't recommend Emily enough! She was the perfect person to help us welcome a new life into this world, and if we have another child we would definitely like to work with her again.
