Since I can remember, I have easily slipped into the role of caregiver and confidant. It’s in my bones and where I feel very comfortable. I find deep joy in supporting parents and siblings adjust to life with their new addition by answering questions, offering time for self-care, providing an open ear, and sharing the duties of newborn care. My goal is to make room for blissful bonding within the family and for the creation of fond memories of the first few weeks of life. Intimately working with families for over 15 years, I have learned that this can look vastly different person to person, and I enjoy finding ways to honor and complement each individual’s postpartum journey.
Julia spends her free time with her partner on their small homestead just outside Portland, Oregon where they have goats, chickens, bees and a bountiful garden. She is focused on lowering waste, taking back control of the food system, and living gently on this beautiful earth so many future generations have the opportunity to enjoy it too.
