Hello! Meet Your Orange County Doula!

My name is Julie Garin, CLC, CD(DTI), and I provide birth and postpartum doula support and lactation services to new families throughout sunny Orange County, California. Birth and motherhood are my passion, and I am looking forward to being a part of your journey! I am a certified doula through Doula Trainings International, a certified lactation counselor (CLC), and a USC graduate, but my greatest education has been becoming a mother myself. I have a toddler, born March 2019, and he is my whole world. My husband, son, pup, and I live in beautiful Orange County, California.

It is my goal to provide gentle, unbiased support, and evidenced-based birth education so that you feel confident and secure in your birth experience. And as your birth doula, I will be that sense of calm for you as well as your cheerleader.  I will hold space for you and your partner throughout your labor, delivery, and postpartum experience.

As your postpartum doula, I will help you navigate all that encompasses the fourth trimester. Whether its breast or bottle feeding, running some errands, completing some chores, or simply holding your baby so you can nap, I am here for you!

I am proud to support the non-profit organization Empowered Postpartum, which provides accessible, peer-led postpartum support groups in Orange County, California. Check out our groups here.

I also offer virtual birth and postpartum doula services for families from any location in the United States!

If you have any questions, please email me at julie@lagunafamilydoulas.com. Let's rock the art of parenthood together.

I have availability for birth and postpartum starting June 2022 and beyond. I have limited availability for daytime postpartum in April.
