My name is Julia Davidson, and I love my work as a birth doula. My passion and desire to serve women and families has come from a lot of unique life experiences.
After graduating university with a degree in social work, my husband and I moved to Beijing, China for three years where we enjoyed teaching ESL to middle and high school students. My first baby boy was born in Beijing! This journey was difficult, and we lacked the support we needed. After our time in Beijing, we moved to Minnesota for four years. In Minnesota we had two more baby boys. A doula supported us during both of those births.
I loved using a doula for my own births. I felt encouraged, supported and heard. I felt like there was a whole world of birth I needed to learn about. I knew that I wanted to help other families in the same way. I certified through DONA international shortly after the birth of my second.
Doula work beautifully combines my love for social work and birth. I want women to know they have options and that their voice matters. I want to equip partners to support their loved one well. I want families to be brought closer together through birth.
My family and I now live in the Atlanta, GA area. I love working here and being a part of so many families lives during this special time.
It is truly a joy to continue learning and supporting other families.

When I'm not attending births I love to be at home with my boys, playing superheros, reading books or playing games. I also enjoy running, painting, drinking coffee, reading a good book and cooking!
