MEET THE DOULAS
Julie is a doula whose focus is on empowering women to have the most positive birthing experience possible. Her background as a therapist gives her unique insight into the needs of pregnant and post-partum mothers. She knows firsthand that pregnancy and motherhood can be a complicated time in a women’s life, and it’s easy to get lost in the whirlwind of it all. But if there’s one thing she hopes women can remember, it’s that it’s okay to stop and ask yourself, “What do I need?” All mothers have a right to feel safe, nurtured, supported, and empowered, and it’s Julie’s passion to help guide them to that place.
Aanelisa is a doula, a reiki practitioner, and a mother of two who centers her work around empathy and energy healing. Her goal is to help women feel safe in their vulnerability, and empowered to trust their bodies and their minds to carry them through the process of childbirth. She believes that advocacy during labor is important, and strives to stay in tune to the ever-shifting needs of those around her. She is also passionate about aromatherapy, nutrition, and crystal healing, all of which are powerful tools to promote health and inner peace.
