Testimonial for Julia Larson

Julia supported us with incredible postpartum care this year after the birth of our daughter. Our birth was a traumatic one, we had recently moved to the East Bay with our weeks old daughter, and all in a pandemic - a combination that had left us so overwhelmed. I reached out to Julia and we just loved her warm and thoughtful demeanor, and she supported us for the next 8 weeks. She made sure I had always had something to eat, prepped (delicious!) meals, organized and tidied the new home, and lovingly cared for our baby. She was also incredibly supportive of my breastfeeding journey, helping to troubleshoot feeding challenges, helping with supplementation while I pumped to build my supply, and even sterilizing and getting me set up and comfortable on my new pump. My physical recovery was rough, and my mobility was limited in the beginning. She helped me get the baby up and down our driveway so we could take our first walk, showed me how to baby wear in my carrier, and even cared for the baby while we cleared out our old apartment as we finished our move. If she sounds like the most useful person alive, that’s because it’s true, she is! Julia approached every postpartum challenge and concern I shared with her from a place of complete non-judgement, love, understanding, and empowerment. She truly helped me feel cared for and feel like I could enjoy my baby. One day she brought a guided meditation for me, to help me process some of my birth trauma. She was there to answer anxious texts when I didn’t know why my daughter wasn’t feeding. When I asked questions about newborn care that didn’t have a definitive answer, she shared thoughtful resources with me, helping me to feel confident and holistically informed in my choices. Julia was my new little family’s champion, mentally, emotionally and physically. I feel really just so lucky to have had her join our family in that tender time, leaving such a lasting mark on our story.
