Emily Edgar

Birthkeeper

Hi, I'm Emily

It’s so lovely to find you here.

I trust in the magic that is birth.

I lovingly support and hold space for women and their families throughout pre-conception, pregnancy, birth and into Motherhood.

Holding space is what we do when we journey alongside another with our ears and hearts open wide. It is a safe space free from ego, judgement and expectation, and instead is filled with empathy, compassion and softness.

My heart is here.

I find myself in this magical realm, after a spark within was ignited during my own fertility journey and initiation to Motherhood.

I bring with me my love of birth, my Reiki Master and Meditation Practitioner training and my unwavering faith in women’s bodies and their ability to bring their babies into the world.

My role is to holistically support and gently guide you back into yourself on this journey, to ensure you have the most positive, safe and loving experience, whatever this looks and feels like to you.

My dream is for every woman to remember and reclaim her true power during this sacred Rite of Passage, so their new life can unfold exactly as it should – beautifully, messily, lovingly.

I’m a 70’s music lover, op-shopping, cacao drinking, Generator by Human Design. I love walking on lush grass barefoot, painting my nails, healing with herbs, and spend an awful lot of time looking up, in awe of our glorious moon. I believe oat milk is the greatest creation, am constantly rearranging furniture and plants in my house and once started, can talk about birth and spirituality until the cows come home.

I’d love to hear from you.

In those first few months after the birth of your baby, you are bonding, healing and transforming. You are meeting your new self. 

This is an incredibly potent time that deserves to be celebrated and nurtured.

I am present to holistically support you and your family in any way that you feel you need during these months.

We will begin with a ‘Birth Revisiting’ session– where you will be heard and held, without judgement, in the sharing of your birth story. Sharing your story in a safe, loving container can help you create meaning, heal, rejoice in the highs and find the ‘lessons’ or magic that can help you mother your baby from a place of confidence and love.

No two sessions will look or feel the same, however, during our time together you can expect nourishing, home cooked meals, natural, handmade balms, scrubs and self care products, time for you to sleep, shower or take that walk around the block in the sunshine, while I fold the washing, vacuum the floors and read books to your older children.

I can help you navigate getting out of the house, join you for appointments and point you in the direction of where you can find another layer of support within our lovely community. Or we can simply sit and chat with a hot cup of tea.

Investment for our time together $50/hour. Minimum of 2 hours per session.

Baby Carriers – A range of different baby carriers, woven and stretch wraps and ring slings to hire to get a feel for what works for you and baby before investing in your own – $40 per week.

Library – Offering informative and inspirational books on conception, labour, birth, breastfeeding and parenting, available to borrow – $30 unlimited books.

Hire a TENS Machine – The Obi TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) Machine is one of the most effective labour TENS machines on the market, it is available to hire for comfort purposes during your labour – $60.

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing practise using Universal Life Force Energy, promoting deep relaxation and natural healing.

It is a non-invasive practise used to bring about balance and harmony within the body, by releasing stored energy (memories, beliefs, and patterning.)

This creates contentment, relaxation, a decreased feeling of stress, fear, and anxiety and in some cases a reduction of physical illness and unease. Reiki can facilitate quicker recovery times from injury and illness, improve sleep, deepen spiritual and mental growth, and increase awareness and wisdom.

Intuitive reiki sessions can be held in person and also by distance, as it is the energetic body, not the physical body, we are working with.

*I am currently only offering distance sessions, unless booked with my Full Bloom birth preparation sessions or postpartum offerings.

All sessions will include a free grounding meditation recording and opportunity to chat at the conclusion, to share experiences and any messages that may have popped up during our time in session.

"...As soon as she arrived to our home on that special day, a sense of calmness surrounded our space. Emily went seamlessly between us all throughout labour and birth, holding the space for each of us to feel safe and fully supported." Sarah
