I’m Emily, a wife, mama, friend, doula, musician, vegetarian and experimenter in the kitchen. I grew up in Ohio, the land of OSU football, farms and endless games of corn-hole. After high school, I moved to Lynchburg, Virginia to attend Liberty University where I met my husband, Jon. We got married in 2013 and lived in a little guest house nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains where I nannied and loved on four precious little kiddos. In 2016, we moved to Richmond, Virginia. I was 8 months pregnant and no help in the carrying-all-the-heavy-boxes department. Since then, we’ve settled into our neighborhood and enjoy exploring all the fun restaurants, coffee shops and parks. I stay at home with my sweet little one year old boy named Leo and also work part time at a locally based e-commerce clothing company called Latched Mama. They make nursing friendly tops, dresses and pajamas for breastfeeding mamas and everything is SO soft!
After finding out I was pregnant in the fall of 2015, I couldn’t stop researching and reading. I was fascinated with pregnancy, childbirth and the miracle that is the woman’s body. After having fantastic prenatal care with my midwife and an empowering birth of my son, I couldn’t ignore the pressing on my heart. I was being called to birth work; to supporting women in the most beautiful yet vulnerable season of life. I am passionate about advocating for women through that process; from the time she pees on a pregnancy test to the much anticipated first glance into her baby’s eyes.
