"Right away, Julie helped ease my anxiety by helping me establish an easy routine with my son that increased my confidence. With her help, I finally had some precious moments of “me time" to eat, take a shower, and most importantly, nap! Also, Julie is super resourceful and the fact that she’s a mom herself you get the sense of community that every women needs. Without a doubt, I felt like she’s the Mary Poppins of the doula world. Julie helped me through my trying times of motherhood, and I’m eternally grateful for her contribution to me and my son's transition postpartum."
"There is one thing at the top of my postpartum must have list: Julie as postpartum doula. Julie was more than helpful... she supported us as new parents. My husband and I thought we could do it all ourselves. We read all the books and took all the baby care classes. Baby arrived and we had no idea what we were doing! We were so tired and had so many questions. We could ask her any baby question and she had real life tips and tricks that worked- sleep and feeding schedules, bathing, care and my well-being. I credit Julie for helping in my recovery and saving my breastfeeding journey (they don’t teach her tips at the hospital). Julie brought a calm, kind presence to our house. We were so comfortable with her and felt so confident after her guidance! We will refer her to any friend that is expecting and will ask for her help again when we are ready for our next one :)"
"Julie was an exceptional postpartum doula for me and my family. Prior to meeting Julie my husband and I were extremely sleep deprived and had tons of questions on caring for a newborn. Julie helped us through it with such a caring and gentle approach. She's very knowledgeable on all things related to feeding and helping calm fussy babies to help them sleep. I felt calm and reassured that our baby was in good hands on the nights she stayed with us. She shared helpful observations that were documented for us to refer to, which was also very helpful as a new mom since I often have difficultly remembering things! She gave us wonderful suggestions to help our newborn with feeding and sleeping by implementing routines and shared helpful resources. Julie's non-judgmental and caring approach was just what I needed as a new first time mom transitioning into parenthood. I'd highly recommend Julie to anyone needing support during (what can be) a very challenging time for families."
"If you are looking for a birth doula, Julie is your person! Having Julie as our doula was hands down the best decision we made during our pregnancy. We were first time parents and having Julie helped us tremendously. She is super nice, very passionate and knowledgeable about what she does. She always checks in on how I was doing throughout my pregnancy and after birth. She's also very detailed and prepared us really well from birth plan to postpartum care and everything in between. Because of Julie, we had a positive birth experience and postpartum and we couldn't thank her enough. We highly recommend Julie to anyone especially first time parents! We look forward to working with her again with baby #2! ??"
"We were fortunate enough to have Julie's help with our second child, and are so grateful we did. She truly went above and beyond for our family, and her expertise helped us in the moment and for months to come as well."
