Working with families is truly my life calling. I have extensive experience (almost 20 years) working with Postpartum Families, and now I am so excited to begin my journey as a Birth Doula. I believe in Doula Care for every family, that Doula Care is a necessity, not a luxury, and that it is a custom that has been fading in recent generations. I am very proud to be working with St. Louis Doulas as an independent contractor. My affiliation with them GUARANTEES my clients will have a Doula present at their birth, and that my clients have access to the many other Doulas within the agency and all their skills and specialties in addition to mine!

Julie was incredible! As first time parents, we were so nervous, tired, stressed, etc but Julie was so comforting and encouraging. Highly recommend her services.

I can't thank Julie enough for her postpartum doula service!  She completely and nonjudgmentally adapted to the needs of my daughter and I.  For me, the postpartum period was much more difficult than prenatal challenges and Julie gave me the skills I needed to care for my baby.  Julie has a love and passion for babies and their famiies.  She brought so much information and expertise on infant care and left me with the confidence to be the mom I wanted to be.  I would recommend her service for anyone, and any family, with a newborn or infant.
