About Emily

I was a teacher for eight years in New York before my official entry into the world of birth work.  As a health educator, I researched and taught about pregnancy and birth every semester, and it was always my favorite unit!  I was further inspired when I had the opportunity to attend the births of my nieces and nephews, and I decided to train as a birth doula in 2011.  It was on the last day of training that I found out I was pregnant myself and started the birth jouriney on a much more personal level.  I stopped teaching when my little one was born and moved to Massachusetts shortly thereafter.  While I was busy figuring out motherhood in the following year, my thoughts returned to professionally caring for women and families in their childbearing years. I began to more concretely consider becoming a midwife, and in 2013, I enrolled myself in an accredited midwifery program and fell in love with home birth. Since then, I've completed my apprenticeships with multiple home birth midwifery practices, graduated from Birthwise Midwifery School, and earned my credential as a Certified Professional Midwife.  I am happy to partner with Kara Schamell for both midwifery and doula services, offering holistic and balanced home-based care to families in Eastern Massachusetts.
