Julia's Reviews & Testimonials
My husband and I couldn’t have done it without Julia’s support. She was very calm and professional and it made all the difference for us as we are first time parents. Having Julia at home with us during the early stages of labor ensured that I was getting the help and attention needed while alleviating some stress off of my husband’s back. She was great at the hospital with me as it is always reassuring to have someone professional who is there to care for you not only physically but also emotionally. While the nurses and doctors are super professional, they are there to take care of you physically. Definitely recommend Julia as a birth doula!
Julia went above and beyond - she far exceeds my expectations of a doula. She is simply amazing! Transitioning to motherhood can be so overwhelming, but my husband and I are so glad to have Julia support and guide us through our new journey as we would be lost without her. Julia is truly remarkable - she’s so genuine and resourceful. We can’t wait to have Julia support us again in the future. Our only regret is not booking her sooner!
We had Julia for the home birth of our second child. She was excellent in helping me get my labour going, providing comfort, advice, and a calm environment for the birth, and with clean-up after the birth and follow-up care. We would highly recommend her. Her warm and open personality are well-suited to a variety of clients. She has a TENS machine which I found quite helpful in early labour and is also well-versed in setting up birthing pools and comfortable with water births. In addition, she took beautiful photos for us during the birth.
Julia was so supportive of our family and loving towards our son. Thank you Bunky Bambino!
I highly recommend Julia as a birth doula - From the minute I met her, I felt comfortable with her. She has a calming presence which was so important during labour. I had a very quick labour and my baby was unintentionally born at home. Even though Julia was new to being a doula, she remained calm under the pressure and worked together with my husband to do what needed to be done. Her calming presence helped a potentially stressful situation to go smoothly and peacefully! Julia is responsible, punctual, and very dependable. She knew just when and how to massage in a way that eased my contractions. We were very happy to have Julia be a part of our daughter's birth.
I was so fortunate to have Julia as my birth and Postpartum Doula! Leading up to the birth, Julia made me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed around her. She really listened to what I had to say, and she allowed me to voice the concerns and fears that I was having. She guided my husband and I while we made a birth and postpartum plan. Knowing that birth is unpredictable, the plan allowed us to all be on the same page, working as a team. Julia was the best birthing coach I could have asked for. She was by my side the entire time (which is what I needed) working together with my husband. She offered continuous support, cheered me on and gave me the confidence that I needed. She reassured me that I was capable, she massaged my lower back, she positioned me on the birth ball, she hydrated me, she nourished me, she encouraged me, she believed in me. She worked with my husband and gave us our space at just the right time. The list goes on and on! Because of Julia, I was empowered to have a natural water birth... and that’s exactly what I had. It was because of her ongoing support, physical touch/ adjustments and genuine care that I had such an amazing birth. Julia’s sweet, loving and caring personality made her the right fit. Her knowledge about birth and postpartum care was so helpful. I can’t wait to have Julia as my Doula for my second child! Thanks Julia!!
Having Julia support me during my birth was a decision I am so grateful I made. Her positive and calming energy was everything I needed that day. I know for a fact that I could not have had a non-medicated birth without her and my husband. I also was thankful she was an advocate for my wishes when I could not communicate them properly to the doctors. Julia is a warm, loving person that makes you comfortable the instant you meet her. I couldn't recommend her enough.

Julia is an amazing doula and I would definitely have her again! She was very calming with with me during birth. She made me feel comfortable in moments of high intensity. Julia felt like a family member, but at the same time was very professional.
