Emily Bird

DCBD Central Doula

Emily (she/her) was drawn to birth work after her own experience with the joy, uncertainty, and powerful transformation of pregnancy and childbirth. Emily has an MA in International Training and Education and has worked for over 10 years on women’s empowerment issues and youth development programs in underserved communities both here in the U.S. and internationally. Knowing first hand the importance of a compassionate and skilled support person during life’s transitions, she became a doula to support and empower families through this special time in their lives. Emily brings a calm and encouraging perspective to her role as a doula. When not running off to a birth, she can usually be found spending time outside with her family, experimenting with new recipes, and trying to squeeze in time for yoga, running, and new podcasts.
