About Doula EAC

"Erin was born to be a Doula." - Maegan Baron

 Doula EAC - DMV premier Doula service

Erin has always loved the birth experience and has spent years supporting her friends during their childbirth experience. Four years ago, she decided to leave teaching Kindergarten and focus on childbirth education and supporting families transitioning into parenthood.

She has attended trainings with DONA, Mamatoto Village, Spinning Babies, Birth-Ready Method, Divine Birth Wisdom-Grandma's Hands Herbalist Course, and several other workshops and courses. 

What's most important to Erin in this work is creating an environment in birth that is nurturing, educated and smells amazing. Erin has always believed that "Every Body needs a Doula," and deserves to be pampered into motherhood while learning about the different options and choices that are available to them wherever they choose to give birth.

Where do I begin?

When I look back at my pregnancy it will always make my heart warm, and a great big portion of that is because of Erin. From our very first virtual meeting, all the way to post-partum, Erin has showed up fully providing her knowledge and expertise. She has made me feel comfortable to confide in her whenever it was needed; I trusted her expert opinion, and she made me feel supported.

I definitely felt spoiled from the care she provided while I went through labor (she showed up fully equipped) with the personally crafted body wash and body oil. I literally can't imagine what my pregnancy would've been without like without her.

As a doula myself, I can say with no hesitation that Erin is a top-notch Doula. I'm forever grateful for her for making my first pregnancy. If you haven't caught on by now, I highly recommend her services.

Erin was one of the most beneficial pieces to both my pregnancy and birth. Nothing about my experience was textbook but I felt strong and prepared for the entire experience based on the knowledge that Erin provided me with. I am not an easy person to coach or manage, however Erin made sure to adjust her style to provide me with the coaching I needed. Honestly, had I not had Erin, I would have been absolutely fearful for my birth and its unexpected turns, but with her knowledge and having her by my side I felt like I would be successful no matter what my unborn child or the hospital brought. I would (and have) recommended Erin to others for their pregnancy and birth.

Having a doula was beneficial but having Erin as my doula was a blessing.

Erin was born to be a Doula.

She is enthusiastic and passionate about her work. She is super easy to get along with, fun and down to earth. From the start she was supportive of my husband, and I birth plan. She lent a lot of encouragement and knowledge as my pregnancy progressed and when the days of waiting for baby's arrival felt real long! She helped me keep my focus and thinking positive. When labor began, Erin was magical. She helped my labor pains decrease by more than half with her use of massage and pressure techniques. My husband and I both agree we could not/don't want to imagine having a baby without her by our side. We truly appreciate all she did for us. And her education, encouragement, support and connections she brought even after our baby was born.

If you're thinking about getting a doula, DO ITTTTT! And choose Erin! You won't regret it.

Erin is a well-prepared, effective and caring doula.

Her understanding of our birth plan and specific concerns made her indispensable during our VBAC labor and delivery. As a VBAC client, she was incredibly supportive and utilized several methods and tools as comfort measures and provided helpful advice in preparation for labor. My partner learned a lot from her during the process and found her assistance to be indispensable. With her support, we successfully had a vaginal birth and healthy baby. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

If you are looking for a thoughtful doula who is well-informed with resources and also flexible, Erin is a perfect fit. Our midwife team at our hospital even remarked about how fantastic Erin was in providing us with support during nearly 36 hours of labor.

We worked with Erin for the birth of our first child, born September 2021.

Since first meeting Erin on a virtual interview, I knew she was the perfect match for us. My partner loves her and so do I.

She was incredibly supportive during the pregnancy: answered all texts, calls, and reached out. She provided amazing resources and made me feel comfortable through the entire journey. I literally don't know how I would have given birth without her. She was an awesome support for me and for my partner. She helped me through contractions and was there for me from the first signs of contractions until after baby was born. Erin used massage techniques, oils, and scents to make labor much more comfortable.

Erin is funny, comforting, supportive, and knowledgeable. She connected us with her friend who does placenta encapsulation: the pills have made me feel great the past two weeks as a new mom. The best decision I've made as a new mom was hiring Erin. We now think of Erin as a part of our family and if I could do anything over, it would be to hire her earlier!!
