Emma Devin - Birth and Postpartum Doula
When I was 4 years old, my mom became pregnant with her second child. I nearly hugged the life out of my childhood best friend in sheer excitement at the prospect of meeting my new baby brother! While I have learned to tone down my sometimes-aggressively-friendly tendencies, my enthusiasm for all things birth related has never waned. Despite having the privilege of traveling and moving extensively in my short life, a career rooted in my passion for the birth and parenting process had never occurred to me as a viable option.
It was not until I had been working closely with two friends, from pregnancy to postpartum, that I found out what Doulas were. I was immediately enthralled, and ended my conventional studies in Art/French Education. I soon after moved to Victoria, and pursued the Holistic Doula Certificate at Pacific Rim College. Through this educational and empowering journey, I have emerged as a birth advocate and graduated as a passionate Birth & Postpartum Doula.
