12 May Meet the team – Emily
Meet Emily, one of The Baby Academy’s Certified Nurse-Midwives and Childbirth Class Instructors
Emily has been working with moms and babies since 2003. She started her work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as an RN. In the NICU, she discovered her passion for empowering families to make informed decisions and become active participants in their care. She completed her Master’s in Midwifery through Frontier Nursing University in 2015. She started as a midwife in a freestanding birth center, then transitioned to “catching” in the hospital setting for private practice. She now works as a hospitalist in a busy labor and delivery unit. More than anything, she loves to witness the birth of a parent. She believes education is the foundation that helps women step into their own power during their pregnancy and birth. She has 2 girls, one born in the hospital and one at home with a midwife.
