Tell us about yourself!
Hi, I’m Emily! I’m a perinatal massage specialist, full spectrum doula, reiki practitioner, cupping therapist and lactation counselor. A perinatal massage therapist means that, as a NYS licensed massage therapist, I took continuing Ed courses to specialize in prenatal, postpartum and infant massage in excess (it’s an obsession!). Most recently I became certified in a form of fertility massage, and can now perform Mayan womb massage. I do everything from fertility, birth and postpartum, and bereavement as well. Basically everything I do involves pregnant people and newborns! My goal is for my business to be a one-stop-shop for all things fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and infant.
What are your Aspirations?
I hope in the next few years to become a childbirth educator and begin teaching classes privately and in group settings, and then a yoga teacher to specialize in prenatal yoga. Pretty much anything shy of becoming a midwife! (Which isn’t off the table just yet...)
I want to continue to support pregnant people and their partners in loving, confident and inclusive ways. To improve birth outcomes and reduce the maternal and infant mortality rates, especially amongst BIPOC.
Can you describe what makes you feel FABULOUS while working?
My heart bursts at the birth of a new baby; whether surgical or “‘natural”. The feeling is no less joyful one way or the other. I love hearing from massage clients that their session was the best they’ve ever had, or getting a follow up text that all their pain is gone! I feel fabulous and powerful and in awe of my abilities to heal and help others with chronic pain.
Thank you, Emily, for being someone of trust, comfort, and light for women everywhere. With your expertise, passion, and resilient work ethic -you have shown us that we can create our own businesses and help others at the same time. We know the future will be nothing but bright and fabulous for you, and we look forward to following along!
