 Julianna's Journey to Birthwork

2022-01-15-31 copy.jpg

Growing up, I have always been fascinated by birth and human development through a physiological and spiritual framework. Through my time as a child care worker, nanny, and dance teacher for young children, teens, and adults, I began learning the ways these complex passions enriched my life.

 

I pursued my love of mindful movement through training to become a yoga teacher and have focused my teaching with young girls, women and expecting mothers. During my pursuit of an Anthropology and Education degree, I began training as a birth and postpartum doula, prioritizing genuine connection and evidence based care.

I am deeply connected to my Jewish ancestral roots and incorporate traditional forms of healing in my offerings such as energetic healing, bodywork, and herbal remedies.

 

I am deeply grateful to all of those who came before me who have offered their support to help me get to where I am today. The strong women in my life have without a doubt shaped and influence the work I do today.

 

 I am always striving to better my practice and offerings through constant education. I recognize each women, birthing person, and birth is unique. It is my priority to bring the same calming, encouraging, and positive energy to each woman, partner, baby, and family.
