Hello, I'm Emma. I’m originally from Sydney, Australia, and I live in Oakland, with my partner and three children. I’ve been a birth doula for about 6 years - I started my doula business in Sydney, moved it to Mexico City (we lived there for 2½ years!) and I've been here in the Bay Area for over 3 years. Seeing the different aspects of pregnancy care in several countries has given me a unique perspective and appreciation for birth as an individual, transformative and powerful thing; a moment in time that is precious, and universally valued.
I'm honest, empathetic, and passionate about providing unique, personalized support to people on their individual pregnancy and childbirth journey. Nothing makes me happier than seeing new parents marvel and feel the sense of pride in themselves after birthing their baby. I like making deep connections with people, and I am very fond of a good cup of tea and cake.
I love traveling, great food (both cooking and eating it) and playing around in my garden. I'm pretty terrible at networking, but I’m excellent at remembering random trivia.
