Supporting Women and Families through Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum
It's so lovely to have you here!
I believe that having a baby is the most powerful, life-changing experience that a women will ever have in her life. I feel that all mothers deserve to have a compassionate, educated and knowledgeable birthing companion by their side throughout the entire birthing process. You deserve to be informed and educated on your options and supported with your decisions. YOUR birth, YOUR way.
You have the strength within yourself and I will guide you to finding that power and determination needed during your labour. Whatever your birth preferences are, I will do everything in my power to ensure that you feel heard, comforted and well taken care of during this special time in your life. I would be honoured to work with you throughout your pregnancy, delivery and during the postpartum period. I will be devoted to you and help you have a positive and empowering birthing experience!
As your doula I am committed to your health and the well being of your growing family. Our prenatal visits allow us to form a relationship where I learn about your birthing desires and your individual needs. We cover everything from pain management techniques, discussing fears and making flexible birth plans. I will be there to provide you with continuous emotional support and answer any and all questions you may have.
You will receive personal support throughout the entirety of your birthing journey. As a Doula, I promise to offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during and after birth. This is your birth and your decisions, I am there to support you. Using a variety of pain management techniques, we will work together through the entire process.
The postpartum period is known as the fourth trimester, and it truly is such a special time for you to heal, rest and get to know your baby. I ensure you are getting the proper nutrition, sleep and help/support that you need during this time. I'll help with baby's needs, breastfeeding/ bottle feeding support, older siblings, child supervision, healthy meal prep and so much more! Let me take care of the household tasks, so that you can bond with baby!
"Julia is very calm and relaxed. She maintained her composure in a stressful, fast, birth in which the midwife did not arrive in time. Her voice was soft and comforting. She was able to focus, think and do what was needed to be done in the moment despite the stress. She worked alongside my husband and respected his role. They were a great team!"
Mandy & John
"Julia was very supportive, caring and understood my needs. She is an amazing doula and was the major reason I had an unmedicated birth!"
Darcy & Alex
"Julia is an amazing doula and I would definitely have her again! She was very calming with with me during birth. She made me feel comfortable in moments of high intensity. Julia felt like a family member, but at the same time was very professional."
Iris & Peter
I was so fortunate to have Julia as my birth and Postpartum Doula! Leading up to the birth, Julia made me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed around her. She really listened to what I had to say, and she allowed me to voice the concerns and fears that I was having. She guided my husband and I while we made a birth and postpartum plan. Knowing that birth is unpredictable, the plan allowed us to all be on the same page, working as a team. Julia was the best birthing coach I could have asked for. She was by my side the entire time (which is what I needed) working together with my husband. She offered continuous support, cheered me on and gave me the confidence that I needed. She reassured me that I was capable, she massaged my lower back, she positioned me on the birth ball, she hydrated me, she nourished me, she encouraged me, she believed in me. She worked with my husband and gave us our space at just the right time. The list goes on and on! Because of Julia, I was empowered to have a natural water birth... and that’s exactly what I had. It was because of her ongoing support, physical touch/ adjustments and genuine care that I had such an amazing birth. Julia’s sweet, loving and caring personality made her the right fit. Her knowledge about birth and postpartum care was so helpful. I can’t wait to have Julia as my Doula for my second child!
