New Mom’s Comments:
“I would highly recommend Emily to anyone. She is easy to talk to and is very knowledgeable about all aspects of childbirth. She offered emotional support as soon as we got there – very excited about the new baby on the way. She made sure I knew what was going on at all times, what doctors and nurses were doing…She rubbed my back, feet, legs..helped and encouraged me to get into certain positions that would relieve pain. I am grateful that Emily was there – I do not think my mother and husband alone would have been of much help with all that I needed.” – Patti (delivered baby girl in hospital)
“Emily was an excellent doula. When natural labor options were exhausted she continued to support and encourage me. I remember her telling me how strong I was and how well I was doing. That was very meaningful to me. Emily’s support began long before delivery day. She is very educated and informative with respect to birth / breastfeeding/ pregnancy issues. I have learned so much from her”. – Rebecca (delivered baby boy in hospital)
“Emily, Thank you so much for all your support during my pregnancy. It really meant a lot to me. I LOVE your studio and hope to get back there more often.” -(Helen, delivered twin baby girls in hospital).
