Testimonial for Julia Knight

It was very daunting starting a search for a Doula, but when I met with Julia I felt at ease. She felt familiar, like someone I could really talk to about anything in a non-judgmental way. She’s warm, funny and such a positive person that you can’t help but feel excited about your birth!! One of the things that stood out to me was the way she wanted to not only support me, but support my partner. From the very beginning she was actively involved, easy to communicate with and there for whatever I needed.  Even though she had other clients at the same time, I always felt prioritized and she was always very flexible. Our prenatal visits were comforting, fun, informative and just what I needed to feel ready for labor. We went over multiple laboring positions that I could work with my husband on and we felt fully prepped on what happens in early labor and ways to move through it. Most importantly she advocated for us & helped guide us at the hospital when we got there. We were basically given the option to either return home to labor more or become admitted and be induced.  Julia helped us come to a decision- we asked to be admitted to a room for a couple of hours to see how much I would dilate naturally. The PA said yes, I was admitted and Julia and I labored down for the next 5 to 6 hours. She lead me through different positions and we welcomed the contractions together. It was truly a transformative time that I will never forget and I couldn’t have done it without her. While the pain was intense, Julia was with me every step of the way, lifting me up and encouraging me and I went from 2 to almost 6 cm in about 6 hours. Even after I got an epidural she kept me moving in the hospital bed, which was a goal of mine. She was a source of support and someone you could really count on in the hospital. We were very lucky to have a wonderful, magical birth- I wouldn’t have changed a thing and I can’t recommend Julia enough!!
