How we can work together

Prenatal Care

Navigating pregnancy can feel overwhelming. Moving from a pre-pregnancy lifestyle to the changes pregnancy brings doesn’t have to feel confusing. From prenatal care to what to pack in your hospital bag, start here.

Postpartum Support

Birth trauma can often be confused with postpartum depression. If the typical perinatal counseling or postpartum support groups aren’t helping, birth processing can facilitate healing.

Professional Development

Birthworker (doula) training and healthcare professional education are not teaching active advocacy skills to protect client decisions. Are you ready to expand your professional practice and change the culture of care?

  • Every mom who didn’t experience a seamless, perfect birth experience needs to check out The Good Birth Co. Emily Edwards was my doula for Mateo and helped me navigate having a baby in a pandemic, as well as unravel some of the trauma from my birth experience with the twins. It’s so wonderful having such an unbiased, knowledgeable cheerleader in your corner when you’re going through such a significant change such as bringing life into the world.

    – Ashley E., Birth Experience Consulting Client
  • Pregnant people will benefit from Emily’s years of experience navigating the hospital setting as a nurse. This gives her the ability to challenge policies as she was working with in the system. Her current role supporting birthing people and their families means she can provide accurate information, non-biased information that her clients can make true information choices with. Anytime a medical professional presented a policy that would potentially prevent me from birthing how I wanted to, I brought it to Emily and most times my birth rights trumped the policy.”

    – Ashley M. of Mind Online Therapy
  • Having the opportunity to share my journey, concerns and wishes with Emily and hearing everything she shares has helped empower me to ask more questions and validated my own feelings/intuition. Especially when I felt confused, at risk and not being supported. Having care providers that also support me does make me feel like I’m not fighting alone.
