Emily was a fantastic doula and was a huge help in making us feel more confident and comfortable.

She suggested some fantastic resources which helped us clarify what we wanted and was instrumental in helping me find a way to have the birth experience I wanted.

Emily helped my husband and me to think about what we wanted in our birth plan, but also to accept that things may not go according to the plan.

I decided I wanted to feel positive about my labour however it happened and to feel like I was present and involved in the process.

Emily helped me to figure this out and focus on this, so that although we had a birth plan we were happy with, we were also okay when things didn’t go according to the plan and I felt very positive about the overall experience.

Mieke & Jacco
”We are so happy that we asked Emily to support us during pregnancy and birth!

I really wanted a familiar face there, someone (beside my partner) who knew me and knew what I wanted or didn’t want.

Emily was there to give support and suggestions, but always so subtle. She was there when we needed her and in the background when we didn’t.

She gave my partner tips on how to support me and also took over from him when he needed some air. I was never left alone and felt so loved and taken care of! What a luxury.

 After I gave birth Emily stayed in touch with me and boosted my ego every now and then with sweet texts.
Thank you so much Emily! Couldn’t have done it without you!”
Jacco – for all the partners:

”I felt very fortunate to have somebody at the birth who was there when I needed them.

From subtle ideas about massaging my partner and running to the store for extra snacks to taking pictures with your phone (cause you’ll forget) and reminding you to ask the questions that you would have forgotten to ask the doctors or midwives.

I think having Emily there is essential.”

C & H
Jag kommer alltid att minnas hur Emily läste avslappningsmanus “waves of relaxation” för mig i flera timmar(!) medan jag badade och kunde somna och dåsa under aktiv förlossning, helt underbart. Under tiden kunde min fru få en paus, sova och sedan vara mitt stöd igen.

Emily stöttade mina önskemål om hur jag ville föda, helhjärtat, hjälpte mig hantera rädslor och stöttade mig känslomässigt före, under och efter födseln. Det hjälpte mig så mycket, gav mig och vårt barn en tryggare födsel.
Mina varmaste rekommendationer!

”Emily and my partner made such a fantastic team and I felt so spoiled and supported”

“Firstly, thank you for everything! You have been the perfect doula, and the support you gave us both was absolutely invaluable. 

Both of us feel we couldn’t have (and wouldn’t want to have) done it without you. 

You were so calming and gentle and prepared – looking ahead at what might be good to offer me, including things for my husband to offer – letting us have the experience together, while helping us achieve that. 

We both felt so connected during the birth, and we truly, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making that possible. 

You are a brilliant doula, Emily. The lucky families that have you beside them in their family journey in the future.”

Serena Martini
“After a first, traumatic birth I knew a doula may help calm and support me for my second.
From our first conversation Emily made me feel heard, supported, and safe and it was like a weight was lifted from my mind and body.

I had moments of feeling powerful and confident, and days where I felt scared or worried about the birth. Emily had the intuition and compassion to listen, gauge my mood and say what I needed to hear at the right moment.

She reminded me of my strength, allowed me to give in and surrender to what my body and baby were telling me, while at the same time making me feel so much more in control and proactive than I felt in my first birth, giving me countless tips and info on different studies to read and preparatory activities to try.

My second pregnancy and birth was an intensely emotional, peaceful and healing experience and I am so grateful she helped me achieve one of my most precious life goals.”

I called Emily “the best doula in the world”. I can’t speak of her highly enough, and even more powerful, neither can my husband.

I was desperate for familiarity and comfort during labor, which with the Swedish system of shift changing midwives and doctors, I knew I wasn’t going to get. Emily offered that plus way more.

My husband, who was skeptical but supportive of the doula thing all together, was singing her praises in the days after.

“I think that without Emily, we (me and my partner Harri), would not have had so good an experience with Matilda’s birth.

You wouldn’t believe that a few chats and theoretically small things done by Emily during the labor would make so big a difference.

It was our second baby and I can compare deliveries with and without a doula.

I think that involving Emily in my birth was the best decision!”
