Testimonial for Julia Larson

When searching for our doula, my husband and I were looking for someone knowledgeable, supportive, and who vibed well with us as a couple. We wanted them to be gentle and warm, yet assertive enough to advocate for us when or if necessary. It was important that they understood my apprehensions about delivering in a hospital, given the high rates of maternal deaths and other negative outcomes for black mothers. Julia ended up checking all the boxes plus more! We were impressed by how naturally kind, knowledgeable, and genuine she was.

She provided us with a wealth of information and resources to put our minds at ease and help me feel physically and emotionally prepared for what was to come.

During my intense unmedicated labor and delivery, Julia remained calm and non-judgmental. She reassured me that I was doing well, encouraged me to keep going, and helped me stick to my birth plan. She approached every situation with patience, warmth, and understanding, which made me feel comforted and supported even in the most stressful moments. She was intuitive and attentive, and seemed to know everything I needed before I even knew I needed it. She also helped my husband to be more confident in his ability to support me during my labor and delivery, and reduced any stress he may have felt had she not been with us.

Postpartum, Julia and her partner Dana visited our home to check in and see how we were adjusting, then drew me a relaxing bath, followed by a full-body massage.

The icing on the cake was when Julia presented us with a thoughtfully written birth story that captured all the details and special moments of our baby’s journey into the world. I had no idea Julia had even been taking all these notes. She was able to capture memories that my husband and I had completely forgotten or may have eventually forgotten.

If I have another baby, I will definitely hire Julia and Dana without a second thought.
