Katy May May Goodson

Julieanne was exactly everything that I NEEDED in a doula. She was the first doula I've ever had and went far beyond what I expected in having a doula. I was able to reclaim my birthing experience with her by my side, which was a very big deal for me coming from a very traumatic previous birthing experience. She was entirely dedicated to me. I appreciate her so much. More than a wealth of love and support, she was professional and educated in all things birth. She is also very easy going and exceptionally understanding. I can't recommend her enough.

I can not thank Julieanne enough for helping me bring my little blessing into the world! she helped me prep for the mental battle that is labor. Julieanne supported me in all the decscions I made and helped support my family. Her energy and knowledge set my mind at ease and I won't be hiring any other doulas for future pregnancies. I am so happy Julieanne was there to experience my journey in going to get my sweet baby girls soul and I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you JULES!

Julieanne was my amazing doula during the birth of my son. Before the birth she met with me and my husband 2-3 times to talk with us about our goals and generally get to know us. We loved her openness, her warmth and compassion, and the fact that she wanted to support our goals, whatever they might be. Julieanne's demeanor puts everyone around her at ease and helped us both to relax about the birth.

My baby was two weeks late and I had to be induced. Julieanne was a fantastic resource throughout. She was there for any questions and provided suggestions, resources, and recommendations as I tried to speed things up. When I went in to the hospital she was available to me to join us for the induction once we were ready for her. She came to the hospital and transformed my room into the place I had discussed with her months before - with music and softer lights. She made the room feel comfortable and homey - which I appreciated because it meant she'd been paying close attention to my wishes from the beginning. When my induction took longer than expected, and eventually we determined that some additional interventions would be needed, Julieanne provided me with information to help my husband and me make decisions. She showed us techniques for handling difficult contractions . She also suggested questions for us to use in conversations with our doctors and nurses. She felt like an ally during a stressful and challenging birth that spanned nearly two days.

Julieanne alos encapsulated my placenta. She shared her process with me and explained how I should store and take my placenta capsules. It was comforting knowing that she undertook the preparation with love and an understanding of how challenging my labor had been. I felt as though each capsule contained a bit of Julieanne's warmth and kind energy.

My husband and I were so thankful for Julieanne's support and guidance during our labor.

Having Julieanne as my doula was a wonderful experience. She has a positive energy, is very knowledgeable about the whole birthing experience and brings a sense of calm when she enters the room. I appreciated how thoughtful she was in taking notes about my preferences for my birth and referring to these and continuing to take notes each time we met. She made sure to see my birthing from my perspective but was excellent at bringing her knowledge to the table to help me in any way. She’s super fun and easy to chat with too, which made some of those long hours go by quickly!! This was my first birth and it went wonderfully with Julieanne’s help. I’d absolutely recommend her to anyone and will use her the next go around ?

Sincerely,

Tiffany Scheid and my little pumpkin Imena.
