NEW YORK CITY AFFILIATED DOULAS
Emilie Adams – Tier 3
Emilie became interested in birth work prior to giving birth to her daughter in 2011. She hired a doula for her birth as she had no family in New York and just felt she wanted to have a woman support my birth along with her husband. In hiring a doula she added to her birth support team someone with a lot of experience in birth both personally and professionally. It was really wonderful to have that continual support at at home and hospital as she labored, delivered and met her daughter. Just having a doula there with her was so reassuring. She had a fantastic birth and felt truly empowered.
Since going through pregnancy, birth and new motherhood she has become a birth addict. She often marvels how amazing women are who grow humans in our bodies and bring them into the world through birth!! Her hope is that she can provide the kind of loving support to mothers that her doula provided her. It really makes for a great entry into motherhood.
In her free time she enjoys baking, knitting, going to yoga and training at the gym. She lives in New York City with her husband, two children, a dog and two rabbits. She is a Dona trained birth doula. She holds current certification in Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED.She is a certified and registered yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance at the 500hr level. She has also trained in Thai yoga body work.
