Long story short, Julia is absolutely amazing!!!
Hiring Julia as my doula was the best decision I made in regards to achieving the best possible outcome for the birth of my son. I decided to hire a doula later in my pregnancy. I interviewed several doulas during this process and knew from the moment we had our first zoom, that she would be perfect. She is very knowledgeable, assertive, calm, comforting, and supportive to name a few of her amazing qualities. The information I gained from her was priceless. We worked together so I could have a birth plan decided upon that was tailored to my preferences. Through all of the prenatal visits she was amazing and really helped my husband by answering any questions he had and alleviating most of his concerns. I believe she helped him almost as much me. Her presence during labor greatly reduced the stress and responsibilities that my husband would have had to do by himself had she not been there.
My labor/birth of my son was LONG to say the least but Julia was supportive and seemed to know what I needed during every step of the way. Due to covid restrictions only she and my husband were allowed. I believe that without her, there is no way I would have been able to have the natural birth I wanted. She was imperative in supporting me and my husband to make it happen. Following the birth of my healthy baby boy, the postpartum visits were also something I can not thank her enough for. The small details she provided during these visits are things I can not express enough gratitude for as it meant so much to me during that time.
I am telling any friends of mine that are or plan to be pregnant to hire a doula and to hire Julia!
