Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I am currently part of The Albany Birth Justice Storytelling Team through The University of Albany. I helped to create the project that focuses on centering the birth stories of people of color, particularly black birthing people. The goal is to learn and help create change around the birth disparities in the community of black birthing people by centering their experiences.

Elide Bell


Working with Emily was hands down one of the best decisions we made for our pregnancy and delivery. Emily was helpful, informative, non-judgemental, empathetic, calm, assertive (but not pushy) and a true advocate. Emily helped bring joy and a positive energy to our entire experience. If you are on the fence about using a doula, I can only say it was one of the best choices we made. And if you have the opportunity to work with Emily, jump on it. I would not hesitate to recommend her. 

Things happen on the fly not only with your body, mental state or with the baby, but also curve balls you are not expecting with shift changes of hospital staff or a doctor/nurse that drastically change the energy of a situation. In the thick of it when important choices needed to be made, Emily helped us make decisions we felt good about - not by making decisions for us, but by being able to calmly be informative and help explain what is happening. How did she do this? She has the knowledge and experience; and most importantly, Emily made it a priority during our prep sessions to learn and understand our views in possible different scenarios. 

During our pregnancy, she gave us excellent tips and tricks and really helped my husband and I find the right balance for us to participate in this experience together. She not only prepared me - but she prepared my husband. He regularly comments to others that ask how he was on the fence about it at first when we initially started talking about possibly working with a doula, but couldn't imagine what we would have done without her now having gone through it. And after the birth, Emily was very supportive.

I don't know how to fully capture everything Emily did for us and she will forever have our gratitude. We are thrilled that she was such a special and important part of our experience.
