Pregnancy and birth are immensely powerful and vulnerable experiences, and I’m committed to ensuring that every woman is heard, supported, and respected.
Who is Emily?
Hi! I’m Emily. I’m a doula and a social worker, and I’m fiercely passionate about supporting pregnant and birthing women in the Austin, TX area. As a doula, I provide pregnant women with ongoing and authentic emotional support, physical comfort measures, and education.
You deserve to labor in the presence of people who care for you deeply and will be present with you through whatever emotions or physical sensations arise. I will support you as the expert of your own birth and will ensure your access to all available information, so that you can make informed decisions that are right for you.
I use a strengths-based approach, which recognizes and emphasizes the resourcefulness and resilience of every person. Our work together will build upon the strengths that already exist within you.
