Hi! I'm Shannon!
I am a Holistic Doula in Charlotte, North Carolina. I love Trader Joe's, thrifting, rock climbing, drinking tea and studying women's health.
I grew up watching my grandmother's calm hands as she helped women labor, including my mom and aunts. When she passed away, I was in the mountains of Switzerland questioning where my life would go next without her guiding me. And then out of nowhere popped up an opportunity to be a live-in nanny for Sarah from sagemamadoula. Later on I apprenticed with Heidi from mydoulaheidi and Kira from Min-R-T.
Since certifying as a doula, I have learned so much about the midwifery model of care here in Charlotte, NC. I am familiar with many great midwives, the best hospitals to give birth and many birth education resources. I have attended La Leche League meetings, taken various childbirth education classes (Bradley Method, Hypnobabies), and apprenticed some of Charlotte's Top Doulas!
My name is Emily Mulvey. I live in Charlotte with my fiance, two dogs, and a house full of plants! I am a Certified Labor Doula who is passionate about empowering women to have the birth they desire. I believe inherently in the power and beauty of women and of birth. My style as a doula is to create and hold an uninterrupted, nurturing space for families to have their own experience. As a postpartum nurse, I have a strong background in supporting women. My pursuit of my doula certificate was born out of a desire to spend more time supporting women than I am able to as a nurse.
