I am Julie, a Utah doula offering modern, practical, and intuitive doula services to parents in Salt Lake and Utah Counties.
Nice to meet you.
The days of the one-size-fits-all birth are done; the overall birth experience has evolved over the years, especially for our generation, and I believe that the need for personalized, sensitive, and knowledgeable support in today's birth world is becoming more and more necessary. It is my joy to provide that for you. I see every parents' journey as unique and to be approached with customized care to meet their individual needs. My personal experiences and specialization in VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) and complicated birth situations will help you take control of your birth as I guide you through the intricacies of pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. As a birth doula, I feel honored to be able to contribute my expertise and knowledge to parents and families in Utah (to learn more about my work with VBAC families, head over to The VBAC Link).

WHAT MY PAST CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Julie was everything we hoped for! Supportive, knowledgeable, and excellent at her work. She helped tremendously with pain management, helping guide us on our path to delivery, and providing tools that I’m sure ultimately helped me achieve a VBAC. Her encouragement and faith in me was so apparent. I would recommend Julie to any pregnant mom in a heartbeat.
Julie is absolutely amazing! I was able to have a VBA3C and it would not have happened without her. Julie is a VBAC rock-star! She knows EVERYTHING about them. Not all doulas are created equal and Julie is the type to go above and beyond and really cares about her clients. She was great at giving me info and letting me make decisions and never forcing her opinion on me. I just can’t say enough great things about her. Love her!
My pregnancy was high-risk and stressful, I realized partway through it that I was going to need the expert support of a doula. I was able to achieve an VBAC while being induced at 38 weeks. I didn't think it would be possible, and I don't think it would have happened without Julie's help. I was able to endure over 24 hours of induced labor before getting an epidural, and I know I couldn't have done that without the techniques and support she provided. I will always treasure the experiences I had with her!
I cannot even begin to explain how amazing Julie is! My husband and I were hesitant to hire a a doula and wondered if we really 'needed' one. I am so glad we hired Julie, she helped me so much during my pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum that I truly know that I could not have done it without her. I will, without hesitation, hire Julie for all of our future births. She has such a sweet understanding demeanor and knows her stuff. She did an amazing job during my birth to keep me calm and focused on what I really wanted. I truly cannot thank her enough! I recommend her to anyone looking for a doula, hands down.
I am here for you!
