Woman of the Week: Emily Frigo

Babes, meet Emily Frigo! Emily is the founder of The Association of Herbalism and Healing Arts, a full spectrum Doula studying Midwifery, a Clinical Herbalist, and a Women’s Healing Arts Practitioner and Educator. Talk about doing it all.

Here’s what she has to say about her fertility journey: “I found holistic health and herbal support during my journey through a stillbirth, recurrent miscarriages, and secondary infertility. I went on to suffer an injury during birth which resulted in lifelong chronic pelvic pain, and debilitating postpartum depression. I was disconnected with my body, with my health, and with my overall sense of well-being.I saw a variety of physicians and specialists who brushed off my infertility, didn’t hold space for my losses, and completely ignored my pelvic pain.

It was during these experiences that I was called to being an advocate for my own health, and mixed modern science, earth medicine, and healing arts to heal my mind, body, and spirit. After over a decade of professional education, I now share with others how to make informed choices about their health and how to reconnect with themselves by connecting with their intuition, knowing their own power, and using the natural world for healing.”

We felt so honored to get the chance to hear Emily’s story. We appreciate her openness. And more so, her willingness to provide education and assistance with the battle of fertility and hormone health is inspiring.

Here’s more about this amazing lady!

Favorite Beverage: “Hot White Mocha”

What are you passionate about?: “I am passionate about women reclaiming their power in health and wholeness – specifically around their menstruation, sexuality, fertility, and menopause.”

What do you do really, really well?: “Continuing my education! I am a life learner. I am always, always studying something new. Society tells us that education stops after college, but that is not my story. I find strength in always following my curiosity.”

If you could do anything with your time, what would you do?: “No financial restraints? I’d purchase forestland and start a holistic health collaboration. Professionals would come together, and we would grow herbal medicines, offer safe spaces for women to come and find healing, host community gatherings, and have birthing suites for families to use during labor and postpartum.”
