Emilia Smith

Emilia Smith, CPM, LDM, IBCLC, is a midwife and lactation consultant. She is a graduate of Birthingway and is thrilled to be a part of the faculty at the institution that supported her through her midwifery training. She now teaches Fetal Assessment and Postpartum in the midwifery program and Complex Maternal Situations,  Pregnancy & Birth Impacts on Breastfeeding and Breastfeeding Education & Counseling in the lactation program. She is also a clinical preceptor. She feels unbelievably lucky to be a part of Rosehip Midwifery along with Birthingway faculty member Heather Hack-Sullivan. During her process of becoming a midwife and lactation consultant, Emilia also became a mother. She is now a mama to three amazing and strong people. “Becoming a mother for the first time was a transformative experience. I was at once myself and new; motherhood felt simultaneously foreign and familiar. My children are constantly teaching me new things about myself and the world and I am so grateful for their presence in my life.”
