Dawn Stobart-Gebhur

I am writing to recommend JulieAnn Bergeson as a Postpartum Doula.  JulieAnn looked after my two children for 7 months.  Due to habing to relocate for my husband's job, we sadly had to say gopdbye to JulieAnn, but she was excellent!

JulieAnn was highly motovated to learn as much as she could and performed exceptionally by utilizing her best capabilities.  She frequently devoted herself for long hours to develop lesson plans for my oldest son Charlie and monitor his progress.  AS an individual who understands her limitations as a professional Nanny, she never disturbed our privacy.  

Notably, she is very skilled in:

Supervising children and caring for their needs.

Planning, preparing and serving meals to our children.

Bathing, dressing and feeding infants and children.

Preparing formulas and changing diapers.

Performing light household duties.

Performing duties of a Personal Assistant such as, scheduling flight schedules, scheduling hotel arrangements, scheduling activities for our young son, paying bills, etc.,

JulieAnn has many strengths but her main strength, according to my observation, is her talent to care for and motivate children.She alwaus seemed genuinely interested in children's mental development and presented new ways of learning that captured their attention. JulieAnn is very reliable, trsutwirthy, motivated, and able to make herself tune-up with the requirements of family and children. In summary, JulieAnn possesses all qualities that make both a Nanny and Postpartum Doula successful. Though she was hired as our Personal Assistant and professional Nanny, her qualities are amazing, she cared for our newborn daughter and stayed awake at night for feedings and changings and she is hands down so talented and gifted. 

Once again, I highly recommend JulieAnn as a Postpartum Doula.

I highly recommend JulieAnn as a Postpartum Doula.  She was our Doula for about 3 months.  She came highly recommended through a close friend of mine who hired a Doula in the past.  At first, I was apprehensive, but once we met JulieAnn, we never looked back.  She calmed my nerves.  She answered all of our questions.  She had amazing suggestions and recommendations.  She listened closely to me without judgment.  Her organizational skills were amazing, she handled our newborn with a calm, loving, gentle care.   She was very respectful and also helped us out with our other children.  Helping our children to get accustomed to their new sibling and getting them involved.  It was beautiful to witness.  I would highly recommend JulieAnn to other families.  She is a beautiful person inside and out.

My experience with JulieAnn has been phenomenal!  She asked me to fill out this review and she asked me for a letter if recommendation and I said, “Yes, Yes, absolutely!!!”  Her experience and knowledge and support were so important following the birth of my baby.  Here I was, a new Mom and JulieAnn has this calm, kind and loving personality that said, “Hey Michelle I have toot back and everything is going to be alright.”  She organized for me, helped and guided me through my breartfeedkng issues and concerns.  Shared important resources with my husband and I regarding whom to reach out to for lactation concerns.   She is a send starter, highly motivated and just a beautiful person inside and out!  She started out as my Postpartum Doula and now is a good friend.  She is simply amazing!!!!

JulieAnn,

  She is an awesome doula!  She helped me with my children when they were babies and into the toddler ages and she helped me so much.  She had good sound advice and I appreciated a lot the fact that I didn't feel judged on my questions or decisions that I made.  That was really important to me being a new mom.  She went above and beyond all the time and my kids loved her and we were so sad to see her go when it was time for her to move on.  She is so awesome and I would request in a heart beat if I have another child!  Anyone would be so fortunate to have her!  She's just great!

My experience with Juliann was very positive in every way.  She was very easy to work with and is a very good communicator which is a very good quality to have.  She helped me in many ways and has really good advice and knowledge which helped me so much being a new mom. I  appreciated all her support and help she gave me with both of my children.  I would recommend her in a heartbeat! If we decide to have another, I will definitely be contacting Juliann!  She's just awesome!
