Emma intentionally provides prenatal and postpartum support to the mother, the birthing person, the family. Her role is to guide and inform you as you welcome your baby and navigate the transition into parenthood. She does this in a nonintrusive way through a variety of services that are tailored to your families needs.
Education, information, care and respect are things she values and aims to bring this to you as she assists to empower you to birth and parent your child. She brings her knowledge and experience of welcoming babies in a home or hospital setting or for caring for the family unit during the postpartum period to you in a caring manor.
