Hi! I'm Emmylou, and I am a certified labor and postpartum doula. A labor doula is someone who offers continuous emotional, physical, and informational support to families leading up to and during the birth of their baby! Postpartum doulas offer similar care once the baby is Earth-side, assisting both the baby and the new parents.
The human body is magic. Of all the incredible things it can do, I believe that birth is the most impressive and inspiring. Pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period are all moments that should be admired and held with attentive care and understanding.
Doulas make up for what is lacking in our health care system and society at large today. Everyone is entitled to holistic, evidence based, and client-specific care. As a doula, my mission is to provide culturally competent, heartfelt, and continuous support throughout these magical moments, honoring and trusting in the body and the birthing process. I help expectant families by instilling confidence, providing comfort, holding space, and advocating for them. The support I offer is one that I like to create with the parents-to-be, collaborating with each family to create care specific to them and their needs. As a queer person, I feel particularly passionate about working with queer and alternatively structured families as well.
