My Philosophy 

Home-Birth Doula Only              

If this speaks to you, then you have found your home birth doula your co-worker on your birthing journey 

  • Are you feeling a deep conviction to be true to yourself in this present time?

  • Are you making choices from a place of love and not fear?

  • Are you feeling the shift to a higher way of thinking and living?

  • Are you already feeling the presence of your unborn baby supporting your choices?

  • Are you becoming more mindful of the energy around you?

  • Are you feeling an inner strength that you didn’t realize was innate to you?

  • Do you envision birthing in a place and space surrounded by love and empathy from your team?

  • Your mind is powerful beyond measure! Your body and your baby are working in sync for this birth, you got this!

I feel you, and I will hold that space for you to move with that beautiful majestic feminine energy to birth your baby as nature intended it to be devoid of fear regardless of the path this birth journey may take.

 She is very supportive of breastfeeding and works with the birthing mother prior to birth to make that possible. Creating a healthy nutrition program and having prenatal yoga classes are all a part of how she approaches the journey of pregnancy with the birthing parent/parents.

She supports women who have a different approach to birthing, as being culturally, spiritually, or intuitively listening in and tapping into the energy of the sages of their ancestors. Before transitioning to home-birth, she had supported births at home, and within a hospital setting that held spaces for the birthing woman to experience the birth that she envisioned. Juliet also has experiences with VBAC. (see VBAC story)
