ABOUT EMILY NEW
LMT & DOULA
OR License # 24375
My passion is supporting families in their life's transitions with therapeutic touch and compassionate care. I have been practicing massage since 2012 and have been a doula since 2014. I have a strong foundation in anatomy and kinesiology through massage as well as education in Spinning Babies, Optimal Fetal positioning and Prenatal Yoga. As a birth and postpartum doula, I have served all combinations of families and love to help facilitate the bond between parents and their babies.
I see pregnancy as a time to reset one's life and evaluate habits, goals, desires, needs and everything you thought you knew about life, and perhaps cultivate a new way of living to pass down to your child. I teach the importance of nourishing one's self before others and feel that changes in our communities start with new parents, even before a baby is born. I always feel so honored and humbled to witness a baby's birth into the world and those moments are proof that love is the one thing that matters.
I believe that both massage therapy and doula work allow me to live patiently, enabling me to nurture and cultivate relationships with people while providing them relief from the stresses of everyday life. I also offer Postpartum Belly Binding and Postpartum Sealing Ceremonies. I have been a member of Brave Birth Doula Care since 2018 and love the wrap-around care that we offer to families. I now offer massages by appointment at Zenana Spa and Wellness and In-Home Postpartum Massages.
My husband and I welcomed a wonderful baby into the world in September 2019, thus I am taking a limited amount of birth and postpartum clients for 2020. Be sure to reach out soon to save your spot!
