Emily Mason

Postpartum Doula

Emily is a wife to her loving husband, Michael, and mother to their darling daughters, Bentleigh and Lakelynn. Michael and Emily started their journey together in 2012 and were married in 2013. She graduated with a teaching degree from Buena Vista University in 2015. They moved from our home in Iowa to Las Vegas to pursue teaching 2nd grade at an Arts Integration school. They later moved to Arkansas, where she taught 1st, 4th, and 5th grades. Finally, in 2017 they welcomed the most amazing little girl into their lives. Bentleigh was 10 months old when she came into their home through the foster care system. Emily became passionate about learning about the brain and the trauma that goes along with being adopted. She also started working with ICEA to write a curriculum for their Postpartum Doula course. As Bentleigh got older, the Masons decided to move back to Iowa, where they could be closer to family. They still were struggling with infertility, and when the pandemic shut down the world, Emily was able to shut down her brain and solely focus on her mental health and having a baby. We welcomed Lakelynn into our lives in August of 2021!
