Erin Young has been a licensed Massage Therapist since 2002. It was through massage therapy that her passion for emotional and physical support blossomed. In 2008 she attended her first Doula training workshop. In 2012 she combined her massage practice with her doula work. She began writing curriculum and teaching other birth workers which led her to pursue certification in Childbirth Education in order to teach families. In 2018 she launched a Houston Birth & Baby, a doula agency that employed many doulas throughout Houston. She is a respected entrepreneur in her community, and she is sought out for mentorship from other doulas.
The work Erin has done as both a Massage therapist, doula, and a childbirth educator positions her to speak with confidence and firsthand knowledge of what is involved in supporting a pregnant person through most physiological and emotional changes that occur in pregnancy. Additionally, she is trained in postpartum mental health disorders, the physical needs of parents and infants, as well as the emotional shifts that occur after birth. As an educator for the adult population, she has the ability to connect with different learning styles and methods which, in turn, communicates the information effectively and thoroughly.
