I was so grateful to have Emily with me during the lengthy labor of my first baby. She was resourceful, comforting, and patient as the surprising twists and turns of labor unfolded. My husband and I were glad to know that we had someone with her skill and personal experience as part of our labor team!

What is a doula?

Doulas accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. As your doula, I will endeavor to provide emotional support, physical comfort, and the information you need to make informed decisions. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort.
