Welcome to Julie Doula and Doula Care! I am a birth doula who cares for families in the Tacoma, Seattle and greater surrounding areas. I primarily service Pierce county and occasionally King, Kitsap and Thurston counties.
Please take a look around my site – I’m happy to answer any questions you have.
What is a doula?
A birth doula refers to a supportive companion (other than a friend or loved one) who is professionally trained to provide labor support. As a birth doula, I work with you to ensure that you have the information and answers you need to make decisions that are best for you. I educate and advocate for you and work to make your choices happen, as much as possible. I provide physical, emotional and informational support to you and your partner during labor and birth. I help with comfort measures such as breathing, focusing, relaxation, massage and varied positions to give you the most comfortable delivery possible.
I seek to strengthen the relationship between you and your partner by working together with you both as a team.
