What is a Doula?

A Twinforks doula believes in "Mothering the mother". A doula is a birth companion or post-birth supporter who will assist a woman before, during, and after birth as well as her spouse and family with any educational, emotional or physical needs.

Meet your Doula

Hi, I'm Julie


My passion as your doula, is to help you achieve your best possible birth. I want to help you feel confident during your pregnancy and birthing experience. While you labor just the way you desire, you can depend on me to continually support you physically, comfort and encourage you emotionally while keeping you up to date as needed.

 

Firstly, I am a  wife to an incredible supportive husband and we have four beautiful children together. I have personal experience in natural hospital , induced non-medicated, medicated and lastly my most empowering birth, a home water birth that truly helped transform and move me into the direction as a birth professional.
