Emily’s profound connection with pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and the world of babies ignited back in 2011, a pivotal moment as she was gearing up for her nursing school journey. During that transformative time, she serendipitously embarked on a DONA-approved doula and childbirth preparation class to complement her academic pursuits. Little did she know, this marked the beginning of an incredible journey that has left an indelible mark on her life.
Throughout her journey, Emily has been a steadfast source of support for countless women and families across northern Utah and even ventured into Wyoming. Her passion thrives in the company of expectant families, where she offers not only her expertise but also a compassionate guiding hand. Emily’s mission is clear: she’s here to empower families, helping them navigate the labyrinth of choices and options as they embark on their unique journey from pregnancy through birth and into those tender early weeks of parenthood.
In 2013, she took a detour on her path, dedicating a year to midwifery school and spending two transformative years alongside a local Certified Nurse Midwife. Together, they facilitated births in the comforting embrace of homes and birth centers, deepening Emily’s understanding of the sacred birthing experience. However, life had other plans, and the arrival of Emily’s own children in 2014 and 2019, after enduring years of infertility and pregnancy loss, temporarily shifted her focus from midwifery. During this precious time, she reveled in cherishing her sweet girls.
Emily’s journey continued as she evolved in her role as a doula, actively seeking opportunities to expand her knowledge and impact. In 2015, she honed her skills by completing lactation counselor training, reinforcing her commitment to nurturing new families. In 2021, she embarked on a new chapter, delving into community health worker (CHW) training, solidifying her dedication to community health, reproductive justice, equity, education, and advocacy.
Emily’s heart remains tethered to her original purpose—to advocate and provide unwavering support to growing families in the beautiful landscapes of Utah. Her joy lies in assisting families as they welcome their little ones into the world, ensuring they embark on this profound journey with confidence, active involvement, informed choices, and a profound sense of empowerment.
