Having Julia as our doula for the birth of our first child was hands down one of the best decisions we could have made. Though we planned to use a birth center, there was a complication with my pregnancy around 37 weeks that required us to ultimately induce labor at the hospital. Julia was there for us the whole time through text, phone call and in person. She answered our questions, discussed our options, and supported our decisions as we faced this sudden change in plans. Her support during labor and birth was outstanding. She met my needs quickly and calmly, and knew what to do at just the right time. Whether it was handing me scented sticks to ease my nausea, letting me crush her hands for hours, or helping me find different positions to move labor along, she truly came ready to help in any way possible. Even after giving birth, when I faced doubts and fears about breastfeeding, she was a phone call away. I look back at the birth of our son with so much pride and absolutely no regrets, and I know that one instrumental reason for this is the support we had from Julia. We cannot recommend her enough!
