My name is Amy Emerson, and I have been fascinated by everything babies and birth since my teens. That fascination led me to the University of Oklahoma College of Nursing, where I graduated in 1990. I worked in NICU at The Children’s Hospital during my nursing school days and when the opportunity to work in Labor and Delivery arose upon my graduation, I jumped at the chance and began working in Norman, OK. After two years, I moved to Tulsa, very pregnant with our first baby, and began working 6 weeks after an unexpected cesarean delivery. I was sure I would not be the one in four statistic that needed a c-section for birth. I was determined from the recovery room to do everything I could to VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) my next baby.
Two years and one month later, I was able to successfully VBAC my daughter after two days of induced labor. I hired my first doula and my nurse was also a trained doula. I was more convinced than ever that doula training was something I wanted to add to my nursing skills. I attended my first doula training in 1993 and became certified a few years later. I was able to utilize my doula skills as a nurse and later as an independent doula, assisting hundreds of mothers during birth.
I continued my DONA doula certification and went on to have 8 VBAC births myself, with our last one born at home. I consider it a privilege and honor to attend births and share in that moment when a new family member comes into the world. I continue to seek and learn new information and certifications to improve my skills as a doula. I look forward to being a doula for many years to come and would be honored to assist in your birth.
