Testimonial for Emma O'Brien

I met Emma through a friend. It was towards the beginning of both my pregnancy and her journey as a doula. Emma met with me on a weekly basis to share information on movement, nutrition, herbal support and birth planning. Emma was and continues to be an incredible and reliable resource; any recommendation she makes, she backs up with literature and research. We practiced streches and different pain coping mechanisms, and thanks to her I made it through a very heavily-medically-monitored non-medicated birth! During labor she was a constant, yet somehow non-invasive calming presence. She made helpful suggestions about how to move, how to cool off, how to warm up,how to massage, and how to leave me alone when I needed it. I'm not sure the nurses would have remembered to give me my son if she hadn't reminded them after they cleaned him up!!

I honestly cannot say enough about this woman. Not only did she support me through my pregnancy, and a fast and furious birth, she provided welcome information, recipes, and emotional support post-partum. She wrote up our birth story when I was too tired to! I would recommend her to absolutely anyone, and know without a doubt that she could make any birth or reproductive experience or choice more informed, more comfortable, and more peaceful. I am so grateful to have met her!
