An amazing help at the time of need, Emma truly empowered my birthing experience! My labor started with baby in posterior position (aka sunny side up) and a lot of back pain, as they told me in the hospital. Within 1/2 hour, Emma helped me through some poses to turn my baby! I ended up not needing any of the dreaded labor augmentations. She helped me through breathing and fully supported all of my decisions (I ended up getting epidural at 7cm). She also was invaluable in taking care of all of my family (mom and husband) emotionally, so that they could also support me, instead of panicking. :) I had a great, amazing time all through the birth of my daughter.
She also took care of us before and after birth with house visits, helped me find a great lactation consultant and answered a swarm of of my newbie mom questions. She's friendly, kind and extremely knowledgeable. It's really thanks to her that I'm remembering the birth of my daughter as empowering, beautiful experience - looking forward to repeating it and working with Emma again next time! ;)
