Meet The Doula
My name is Emily Coates, and I am a birth doula serving the South Sound area in Washington State. My husband and I live with our three daughters in the wonderful city of Tacoma. I love women, and I love the wisdom, joy and energy that come when we support one another through life. I especially love the sacred journey of pregnancy, childbirth and mothering.
Having supported many women through pregnancy and delivery over the years, I am honored and grateful to finally do this sacred work as a full time, professional doula. I am a Birth Arts International trained doula, and can't speak highly enough about their fantastic training and certification program. I believe that every woman should feel safe, loved, supported, and cared for during her labor. My desire is to empower women in pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond by helping them to develop and trust their own instincts, and by sharing knowledge, tools and resources to assist them as they walk out their journey. I would love the opportunity to meet with you as you plan for the arrival of your precious baby.
