First things first: I’m not your typical doula. I’ve had an unusually long run in this career (more than 20 years coaching families during birth and beyond). Plus, I’ll confess I throw down the occasional curse word and I don’t take myself too seriously. Don’t get me wrong: I take being your wing woman very seriously. But as a seasoned mama myself, I know humor is an important part of this whole parenting gig and I like to laugh with my clients once in a while.
All jokes aside (see what I did there?) I work with families from all cultures and backgrounds. I’m here to accept you and support you. Just as you are.
Whether you’re a first-time parent, single parent, same-sex couple, survivor of trauma. Whether you’re having your baby at a hospital, at home, or in a birth center. Unmedicated, cesarean, or pain-managed. Grieving a miscarriage or stillbirth.
The journey of parenthood is diverse. It’s winding. No matter what it is, I’m here for you. I’ll be your guide without judgment (that’s not my style).
Some Client Love
“My experience with Julianne was amazing. She came into my life when I needed help. I found out I had to be induced with no epidural within a week and Julianne volunteered her time to be my doula. She sat and talked to me on the phone so I could get to know her. She completely understood my mental and physical health problems. She taught me so many different techniques to get through the pain my favorite was the peanut ball. She sta with me the whole time. I was there for 26 hours. She didn’t let me getting angry affect hed but she understood. She even helped me learn how to take care of my daughter. She was amazing and the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I couldn’t be any more thankful for her time and caring personality!“
“Having Julianne Curtis as my doula was such a huge blessing! I didn’t have a doula for my first pregnancy and my labor/delivery was extremely stressful (and full of drama). Julianne was literally available for me to talk to any time day or night throughout my pregnany. She made me feel both secure and empowered as a single mom. I can’t even begin to explain the level of comfort I got from knowing that she was there for me even if no one else was. During my labor she was not only by my side helping me through the pain, but she was also helping the father of my child figure out how he could be a part of the experiene as well. She went above and beyond her job description and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to other pregnant woman needing a caring, dedicated doula.“
