What age do you wish you could be permanently?

34 because I gained the self confidence in my 30’s I never had in my 20’s but my body was still young.

What is your ideal way to spend the weekend?

Camping and boating with friends.

How do you like your coffee?

I’ll take it in any form but I prefer strong with a touch of sweet.

What are you most looking forward to in the next 10 years?

I’m looking forward to never moving again after building our dream home this year and moving a ton. I’m looking forward to being settled and watching my children grow into amazing teenagers, then adults!

Why did you become a doula?

I became a doula after attending my sister’s birth which was very tumultuous and difficult. It was the first time in my life I felt like I was in the right place at the right time. I stayed calm in a tense situation and was proud of how I handled everything and was there for everyone around me. About 3 weeks later I took a doula training and loved every minute of it. I have loved it ever since

Becky Emmons is a Labor and Postpartum Doula serving Eugene, Corvallis, and surrounding areas.
