Attends home births? Some Home Births
I'm happy to attend home births that are also attended by midwives.
I work with mamas during their pregnancies to make sure they feel prepared, educated and comfortable going into their births. When labor starts, I’m there to provide physical and emotional support to the woman and her partner. I get together with mamas at least twice during their pregnancies so we can talk birth plans, practice breathing (breathing properly during labor is super important!), discussing concerns, practice labor positions, etc. I officially go on call for each mama at 38 weeks, but I’ll absolutely provide labor support before that- I just am prepared to go at the drop of a hat after that 38-week mark ??.

My spouse and I live multiple states away from and friends, and I knew I'd need another woman/mama by my side as my sweet baby grew in my belly and joined us earthside. I fell sleep n love with Emily immediately early on during pregnancy. I knew, as our doula, she'd be supportive, but there truly are no words that can explain how much support she gave. She constantly checked In with me, did face to face visits, answered my million questions, encouraged me every step of the way, trusted and beloved in me, and never once judged me for my wants. Emily was absolutely amazing to have during my birth. I pushed for about 4 hours, and Emily supported me with every single push and was so encouraging. She rubbed my head, and reminded me of what a good job I was doing, and was so excited with each progression. Emily helped make such difficult labor comfortable and do-able. She truly gave me strength when I needed it the most.
