Meet Your Doula

Hello! I'm Emily, a Knoxville, Tennessee native and mother of two. I first became interested in all things birth about 10 years ago during my college years. I graduated from Berea College in Berea, Kentucky with two degrees, one Child and Family Studies with a concentration in Child Development, and the other in Women and Gender Studies. I believe all birthing people should know their choices and be in charge of their birthing experience. Education is key, the more options you are aware of, the more choices you have. I am passionate about helping families understand their options for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experiences; as well as educating families about these processes. I would love to talk all things pregnancy, birth and postpartum with you!

 

"Because of her, my labor and delivery went so smoothly. She constantly made sure that my nurses and doctors understood my birth plan. She was able to tell when I needed more time to think about my options. She reassured me every step of the way, made sure I understood what was going on and next steps. I was and still am so so grateful for her. She was awesome, I for sure recommend her, and will be using her for all my future children. Thank you so much Emily."
