Hi there! I’m Emily. Rowena is the child who prompted me to start this project. You can read more about her here.
I am a Postpartum Doula and Moving Forward Maven based in Austin, TX whose mission is to embrace growth and improvement during times of overwhelm and disconnect. I believe in doing what feels like relief so that we can start to feel better. I learned this the hard way, having lived for years with a perinatal mood disorder and mystery illness after the birth of my daughter. After trying many things in hopes of feeling connected to life again, I found that relief came when I moved forward with baby steps instead of sitting in stagnancy. Even now that I am recovered from health struggles, I implement the Moving Forward concept into my life. It is a practice that encourages me to take the next steps towards relief, growth, and joy.
I bring my services to women because I want them to feel better. Regardless of the phase of life you’re in, whether it’s 1 month postpartum or 7 years after the birth of your third child, I want to help you find relief and move forward towards a life of wellness.
