Welcome beautiful friend! One of my favorite things in life is connecting with women like you—hearing their stories and partnering with them in creative ways. I’m thrilled that you’re here.

My name, Emese [eh-meh-sheh], means “mother” in Hungarian. I never thought my name would capture the essence of a life passion, but here we are. I guess we could say that I ended up growing into my name.

I’m here to help women thrive and grow more into their authentic selves as they adventure through pregnancy and motherhood.

As you may have noticed, this “mother-becoming” (matrescence) journey radically impacts every aspect of who we are—and causes a major identity shift. What makes this even harder is that societies insufficiently support women and under value motherhood. It’s no surprise many mamas feel overwhelmed, exhausted, forgotten, and even isolated—yearning for more rest, beauty, creativity and joy.

As a pregnancy & motherhood support specialist, I am a:
• Pregnancy & motherhood-focused life coach
• Women’s circle facilitator (locally, in my community)
• Women’s wellness consultant
• Registered nurse (RN)
• Board-certified women’s health nurse practitioner (WHNP-BC)
• Certified Perinatal mental health specialist (PMH-C)
• Menopause Society Certified Practitioner (MSCP)

For those interested, my credentials are: RN, WHNP-BC, MPH, PMH-C, NCMP

As a pregnancy and motherhood support specialist, I believe that radical and life-giving transformations occur when women are empowered and in community with one another. So, I created special opportunities through which we can work together and help you grow more into your beautiful sassy self—unique, courageous, and whole.


It’s my honor to partner with women through 1:1 and group coaching, as well as consulting. By intertwining my various skillsets, I create a safe space for you to hear yourself think, explore areas of your life, self-discover, redefine motherhood and achieve your goals. Think of me as your “thinking and feeling” partner ready to come along side of you and cheer you along this exciting process.

I strongly believe that when we blossom, it positively affects our world—our relationships, families, workplace, and communities. No, self-care is not selfish: through it our families can flourish and our communities thrive.


I live in California with my husband and three little tornadoes who keep life colorful.

With over twenty years of health care experience, I’ve been specializing in women’s health for over 16 years.

After completing bachelor of science degrees in exercise science and nursing, I earned my master of science in nursing from Boston College, and master of public health from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

I recently wrote a book, which my family and I refer to as my fourth baby. It’s called "To Carry Wonder"—and it won an award! The book is a curated blend of story and art with evidence-based insight, aiming to nurture, inspire and equip women across the four trimesters. I’m so grateful to my family, friends, and book team who helped me “birth” this baby so I could finally share it with the world.

Now with all that, dear mama, what are we waiting for? Let's connect and invest in you!:-)
I can hardly wait to meet you.
