I’m Emi, Mama to three home-educated Wildling children and wife to Stephen. I’m also the head, heart & hands behind WildCopperMoon (formerly MamaPixie), where I create empowering resources for pregnancy, birth, mother blessings, and moon circles.
Stephen and I got together in 2008, and began the parenting chapter of our story in 2009 with the birth of our son, Ru. He was followed by our daughter Pixie in 2011, and Gaia in 2014. (We also managed to sneak a wedding in there in 2010!)
We also share our home in Yorkshire with our five beloved cats, Millie, Yuli, Tally, Thackery, and Corrag.
I decided to train to be a doula after the birth of my youngest daughter, Gaia. Her arrival earthside changed my life, and part of that support came from my amazing doula.
After completing my Red Tent training in 2015, I jumped right into the phenomenal world of doulaing. I am a Recognised doula with DoulaUK. You can read more about my doula work and training here. The experiences I have been gifted with through serving birthing people and their partners is reflected in the birth affirmation cards and other resources that I create, along with an understanding of how language affects us emotionally, physically, and spiritually during pregnancy and birth.
