Emily Housman is a registered Midwife, antenatal teacher and DreamBirth visualisation practitioner who lives and works in England. She also holds a degree in Psychology and prior to becoming a midwife she worked for many years in the field of child development and autism with families around the world. It was after attending her first birth (which left her totally awed!) that she decided to became a doula and redirect her work towards families within the context of childbirth, and has taken her to where she is today.
Emily did her midwifery training in London in a busy city hospital, and she now works for the NHS whilst running her own private birth prep service. She is passionate about helping women and couples to have an easier journey through childbirth and to overcome fears and difficulties they may face along the way to becoming parents.
Imagery and visualisation has become intrinsic in her work because of how profoundly and effortlessly it helps women to connect deeper with themselves and their baby, and have much smoother and gentler births. Emily trained as a DreamBirth Practitioner at the School of Images (NYC) by DreamBirth teacher Claudia Rosenhouse Raiken, who has used imagery successfully in childbirth for years and has many, many stories from women, babies and doctors where imagery has had a profound and positive impact on how their journey unfolded.
Emily works with clients locally and around the world, offering classes and sessions online from preconception to pregnancy, through birth and into parenthood. Her vision is to support harmonious, safe and intuitive birth for families, and to co-create generations of little people who are free, conscious and happy!
