Emma Nelson

Postpartum Doula, New Parent Coach

Originally from the Midwest, Emma decided to move to the Bay Area to continue supporting more families as a Postpartum Doula. Her mission as a doula is to nurture and empower individuals and families throughout their postpartum lives by providing care with compassion and respect. She loves to help families around the house by cooking meals, folding laundry, and anything else to make their lives easier. Her warm and caring nature as well as her gentle confidence will put families at ease while helping them navigate the addition of their little one. She likes to meet families where they are while supporting their healing, rest, and overall physical and emotional well-being. She has experience with toddlers and enjoys helping them adjust to having a younger sibling in the home. One of the things families like most about Emma is that she is always looking for anything extra she can help out with as you adjust to your new routine with your baby.

When Emma isn't working, she likes to cook, read, and spend time outdoors.

“Emma was my postpartum doula after my second child was born. She was the first postpartum doula I’d worked with and I cannot imagine my postpartum experience without her in it. She was intuitive, kind, helpful, thoughtful, gentle, funny and graceful with me, my toddler, my partner and my newborn as we all navigated our new lives together. With her help, I was able to sleep so much more than I did in those first few weeks after my first pregnancy, as she helped with night care for my son. She also helped my healing with her gentle nature, amazing cooking abilities, and open-hearted presence. If I was going to have more kids, she would be an integral part of my postpartum team. 11 out of 10 recommend!” -Abigail S. -Des Moines, IA
