Bear hugs for the doula after baby Lily June was born. Papa bear is a good friend of mine - I'm so honored I got to share the birth story with this wonderful family!
"As a first time mom I felt so informed with Julie. If it were just me and the doctor, I think it would have been a lot scarier for me. The prenatal exercises she walked me through made me feel more ready for birth. And the delivery room was a lot more comfortable with her in it." Ashley S.
"a very attentive and amazing partner in crime." makani c.
"Her constant support throughout was phenomenal and I couldn't imagine this experience without her. My birth went so much better than I could have imagined. I love Julie's style of communication, respect, and confidence." Sherrie N.
"Julie has been the most amazing doula we could have asked for. It's bittersweet that this is our last baby, as my last delivery experience was magical. With all her guidance, my delivery was the perfect ending to my last pregnancy. I could close that chapter in my motherhood book proud of having a painless, beautiful, non-medicated birth experience. All three of my deliveries were wonderful, but this one with a doula was the most magical." Jennifer R.
"We are so lucky to have found Julie! She helped me prepare not only for the birth of our first daughter, but also prepared us for our first days at home with a newborn. Her calm and loving presence was on par with her professionalism and great communication. We felt fortunate to have Julie's support once we brought our daughter home - her post-partum visits were so invaluable! I highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for a doula!" Catherine A.
"Not only is she an incredible doula, but an amazing person all around. Julie moved our hearts and led me to find an inner strength i never knew i had. i truly believe she is the reason i had an immensely empowering birth experience. it was an honor to have julie attend our birth and we are forever grateful." Jennifer h.
"Julie was absolutely wonderful! From coming to my house to help me though contractions at 3 am to bringing my husband dinner at 10 pm in the hospital after a very long day, there is nothing else we could have asked for. Her support and attentiveness throughout my [long, painful] labor was amazing. My husband was hesitant when I first wanted to hire a doula, but he now encourages it to other soon to be fathers. Compared to other doulas I was considering, Julie had been through the fewest births, but the passion and expertise she brought made us feel like she had been doing it forever." Sarah H.
"I honestly don't know how I'd have done it without Julie. She was a great support to myself and my husband. Our birth was very different than how we'd hope it would go, and I'm so thankful she was there to support us. " Ashley L.
"Julie was integral in our birth experience. She provided the emotional and physical support that I needed and when I needed it without me having to communicate it, which I was unable to do. My birth experience was very long and she was by my side the entire time. Her voice and words were encouraging and sweet. Some people have a knack and passion for this area, and she is definitely one of them. I will always remember them fondly when I was in pain, but soothed by her kind and encouraging words. I don’t know how to thank her enough for your presence and hard work for my birth. Looking forward to the next one!" Jessica C.
"I could not have hoped for a better experience!" Lacey P.
"Having Julie be our doula was one of the best decisions we made for my pregnancy. She kept me calm and in control even when things didn't go as planned. She has a gentleness and kindness to her that put us all at ease. I am so thankful to have had her as part the experience of our little man's birth." Ashley R.
