The Hummingbird

The hummingbird has great significance in my life and in many cultures around the world. It carries the symbolism of not only fertility, but of finding joy, drinking the sweet nectar of life, and of course opening the heart. Hummingbirds are also well know for being able to accomplish the seemingly impossible with their unique and brilliant flight patterns and can be a symbol of great strength and determination.

Furthermore, the very early movements of a baby in the womb feel like little flutters, so if my hummingbird has flown into your life today, I hope you take it as a sign that you have found exactly what you are looking for on your journey to becoming a parent.

In love and gratitude,


A fertility coach is a valuable resource to have in your corner!

“She listened to me. She heard me. She saw me. And she did it with such compassion, without the need to reference her own struggle (I actually don’t know if she’s ever struggled because it didn’t come up, but that doesn’t matter to me). I got to just pour my heart out to someone who could hold space for me, who could empathize, whose feelings I didn’t need to worry about, who I didn’t need to explain anything to. She just got it. And it was so freeing.”


“So excited for Emily to be offering these services! I wish there had been fertility doulas when I was struggling with infertility 10 years ago. It’s one of the most trying times in someone’s life and to have unbiased, nonjudgmental support would have made a world of difference.”
