My name is Emily and I am the birth doula and owner behind Radiant Birth And Wellness. From a young age I had always wanted to be an OB/GYN, helping to empower women with their health and improve trauma-informed care. Throughout life’s twists and turns, I found that my heart was being pulled in a direction longing for deeper emotional connections that would be lost as a physician. So, I found myself working in perinatal research, asking women to donate their placentas for science. It was through this experience that I fell into doula work, already coaching women through contractions and sharing information in between talking about research. In the summer of 2022, I took my doula training with DONA international and decided to dive head first into my birth doula business. Now instead of interrupting labor for science, I protect this space merging my passion for medicine, human connection, and my desire to impact families in meaningful ways. As a birth doula, I pull from my experiences as an EMT, medical advocate, researcher, and empath. I use tools such as hypnobirthing, massage, movement, aromatherapy, and much more to support you through labor and achieve the birth you desire. Working with me you will feel confident, prepared, and filled with joy to experience birth in all its magical and unpredictable ways. I am here for you and your partner, encouraging them, advocating for you both, and making sure you are at the center of every decision. My hope is that you feel radiant knowing that you are surrounded with love, compassion, and knowledgeable support.
