Testimonial for Julie Garin

Long but worth the entire read. Where do I even begin. At first I wasn’t sure about working with a daytime doula since I wondered what the real benefit would be. My contract with my overnight postpartum doula was ending and I needed mommy skills to get me through the entire day. I did my diligence and spoke with Julie’s references of which all spoke very highly of her, that gave me the confidence to sign a contract. Right away she helped ease my anxiety by helping establish a routine I could use with my son whether day or night or anywhere we went. I was surprised I finally had some precious moments of “me time”, to eat, take a shower and most importantly nap! With her positive reinforcement my confidence as a new mom grew each session. I learned how to best bond with my son and spot for cues but most importantly how to respond and not be on reactive mode. We would set goals each week. For example, feeling confident driving with my newborn and creating practical spaces for us to fully function. All while Julie was right there encouraging me the whole way through. Julie is super resourceful and the fact that she’s a mom herself you get the sense of community tribe every women needs. I seriously felt like she’s the Mary Popin’s of the doula world. She would carry all these tools in he r bag. She helped me through my trying times of motherhood and I’m eternally grateful for her contribution to me and my son's transition postpartum. Thanks to her I connected to a mommy and me group and identified a tongue tie issue my son had. Julie is a good quality person with a great attitude, always positive, and encouraging. She has my highest recommendation.
