Read Bio

The births of her own four children each required different types of medical, NICU, and midwifery care.  Her passion for birth started with her own first birth in a military hospital. Julia later became a childbirth educator, then a doula in 2009.  Since 2015 Julia has been a birth assistant supporting families in home birth and birth centers.  She focuses on coaching and assisting the dad as he supports the parent.

Julia has extensive experience supporting successful unmedicated births and also knows that many families benefit from medications for many reasons.  She can help you sort through your feelings, both in advance and in the moment.   During longer labors, Julia helps families stay positive, realistic, and maintain and recoup energy levels and morale.  During shorter, intense labors, Julia helps families stay calm and zero in on essential actions.  

Julia is semi-fluent in Spanish and German. She speaks some Italian, and a little Arabic.
