Meet Julia

  • Experienced Doula
  • Comfortable with pets

I have been taking care of babies and children on and off most of my life. I love interacting with children, especially infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers. I am currently also working and continuing training as a postpartum doula. In the small town where I grew up, it was normal for everyone to pitch in and help each other. So I have always been the type of person to provide help and support to parents in a pinch. Reliability and punctuality are my trademarks, and many people have told me that I have excellent caregiving and nurturing skills, and a calming presence. I also have a master's degree in counseling, and am passionate about music, nature and environmental issues. Right now I have a flexible schedule and am open to short-term or temporary arrangements doing childcare, substitute/sick child care, daytime and overnight doula care. I'm open to additional tasks such as Read more laundry, pet care and meal prep, as well. Please feel free to ask me questions - I look forward to hearing from you!
