Emily is a mother, a performer, a teacher, and a DONA trained doula. She attended her first birth in 1984. She was three, and the client was her mother. The importance and intensity of this moment were not lost on Emily, who then grew up not afraid of, but fascinated by birth. Many years later, this fascination was solidified by her own experience carrying and giving birth to her daughter. She has now been attending births as a doula for three years. As a doula, she helps women face pregnancy and birth with the strength and joy they all inherently possess.
She lives in Somerville, MA with her daughter.
