Emily Morioka | Postpartum Doula, Lactation Educator & Counselor and Sex & Intimacy Coach
When: ***Series canceled*** Sundays, January 7th through February 11th (6 classes total) 10-11:30am
Cost: $90-$120 for the series
Background: This is a series that captures 6 themes around pregnancy and offers community support to help delve into topics that many people experience during pregnancy but don’t have the space to talk with others about. Obstetricians cover physiological health but rarely make space to cover the many other facets of pregnancy. As a birth doula, postpartum doula, intimacy coach, and integrative health practitioner I want to offer a space every week to bring more consciousness/empowerment/community into your pregnancy and offer a small group to connect with - potentially into postpartum!
Logistics: Each class is 1.5 hours. We will have 30 minutes to talk about each topic, 30 minutes for a guided meditation, and 30 minutes to reflect and close. There will be snacks and tea provided. I offer handouts, local resources, articles, additional guided meditations online, and discounted postpartum services and CPR classes. Please note, this class is for anyone who is pregnant or is a partner of a pregnant person. All genders and identities welcome.
Themes: Some of the themes include changing bodies, relationship dynamics and communication, grounding yourself, identity and transition into parenthood, preparing for postpartum, looking at birth and breastfeeding plans, welcoming in challenges and finding strength.
Passionate about the phenomena of healing, sexuality and intimacy, and non-licensed and alternative modalities, Emily works independently as an integrative health practitioner, postpartum doula, intimacy coach, CPR and First Aid instructor and sex educator. She began teaching sexual education ten years ago and her passions in sexuality and health pushed her to pursue a MA degree in Integrative Health as well as certifications as a wellness coach, birth and postpartum doula, lactation educator and counselor, guided imagery practitioner, American Heart Association CPR and First Aid instructor, and new mom’s group facilitator.
