Hi, I’m Emily and I am a Birth Doula and Prenatal Yoga Instructor.
My eagerness and passion surrounding pregnancy and birth began in 2014 after I completed my 85hr prenatal yoga teacher training. Almost immediately after that training I knew two things: I would support women as they entered motherhood, and I one day would become a mother myself. Soon after, I found out I was pregnant with our first baby. I dedicated myself to learning everything I could about pregnancy and birthing babies, and prepared myself for a home water birth with a team of supportive midwives and one extraordinary doula. In 2017, I completed the DONA International Birth Doula Course and have been working with families in the Red Deer area since. As your doula, I will provide you with emotional and physical support, and help you and your partner obtain information and facilitate conversation so you can make informed, educated decisions. I support Midwife births, hospital births, home births, water births, cesarean births and everything in between.
When I’m not at a birth you can find me cooking creative vegan meals, travelling with my husband Brennan, and raising our kids, Molly and Sunny. Oh, and drinking good coffee.
