Birth, Postpartum & Bereavement Doula
Certified Lactation Counselor
Lamaze Childbirth Educator
Newborn Care Specialist
Julie began her training as a birth doula in 2014. She has since certified with Stillbirthday as a bereavement and birth doula.
Her love and passion for helping families accomplish their ideal birth is evident in her work. After having three unmedicated births, two of which were at home with a midwife, Julie loves helping families feel comfortable with the entire birthing process.
She studied Child Development at the Pennsylvania State University before getting married and giving birth to her first child in 2007. Since then, she adopted 2 children from Ethiopia and had two more biological children.
With a passion centered around newborns, it lead Julie to become a certified instructor of The Happiest Baby on the Block method and she has provided infant care since 2005. She also became a certified lactation counselor in 2016 to increase her knowledge about supporting breastfeeding mothers.
