If you’ve traveled the road of motherhood, you already know this reality. Contemplating motherhood? Do yourself a favor and have an exceptional team in place during pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum for those unexpected moments. Our biggest unexpected event where a doula became critical was discovering during our home birth that our baby was breech - folded in half and bum first. Too far engaged to turn, there was no way forward but out in that configuration. Determined to complete delivery naturally at home, Julie helped coach and encourage me through the toughest moments making it possible to proceed while the midwives were busy ensuring my and baby’s safety. Julie went far beyond her job description and automatically jumped into action with “non-doula” tasks such as carrying boiled water to warm up the tub and cleaning up the delivery goo and mess. There’s nothing she won’t do to make labor and delivery as smooth and as comfortable as possible. She’s totally reliable even at “off hours”. I would have never known she was coming off a night postpartum doula shift to attend my birth. She had ample energy to carry me through. I also have since used Julie’s newborn care services both at home and while away on business. Not just punctual, but always early - so important to relieve a new mom’s separation anxiety with a relaxed “handover”. I always came back to a super chilled, contented baby, photos of the day, and a log recording eating and sleep cycles. Not to mention, bottles cleaned and all baby stuff tidied up. No matter what stage you are in your pregnancy, I highly recommend Julie's doula as well as pre and postnatal care services. If you’ve already popped, congratulations and you’ll find that her postpartum doula services are excellent!

Julie is absolutely amazing! She was with our family for the first six months of our twins life and she kept us all sane. She is incredible with babies, responsible and one of the hardest workers I know. She is a mom herself and I trust her implicitly with my children. On top of being the best there is with babies and moms during the postpartum period, she is a great person!
