Hello! My name is Stephanie Emfinger,
and I got interested in pregnancy and childbirth when I was expecting my first child in 2007. After a fantastic natural birth experience, I became a certified birth doula with Childbirth International and then a certified childbirth instructor with another group. I am the only accredited La Leche League Leader in Dothan, and you can find more about our LLL group at facebook.com/DothanLLL. I have been interviewed on the news 2 times for my views and experience with homebirth laws in Alabama, and I was the 2013 keynote speaker for the annual “Miles for Midwives” fundraiser for the Alabama Birth Coalition.
As a doula, I have been able to help numerous mothers have a beautiful birth experience, and you can read some of their secure comments here. I love being a helper to moms during labor, and I love to hear new mothers say “I did it!” I support every woman in any choice she makes because I know that we are each at different places in life, learning and growing at our own pace, and doing the best we can with what knowledge and experience we have. As a childbirth educator and doula, I try to share with the world what choices a mother has in pregnancy and birth, and I encourage all parents do their research and become educated in every area of parenting. I am here to help you achieve your goals for birth and beyond!
