"Julie, you helped me find my
strength, beauty and wisdom as a
woman and mother.  Thank you with
all my heart."  A.F.

  Julie Guttmann, Professional Doula

I am a professional, experienced birth doula, lactation counselor & childbirth educator. I have have assisted over 650 women and their respective partners in birth.  My training was earned through many continuing local and national education programs, including A.L.A.C.E. (Association of Labor Assistants & Childbirth Educators) & DONA (Doulas of North America International). Before I began my career in labor support, I served as a breastfeeding counselor at a local WIC clinic. Currently, I am taking steps to complete my training as a Certified Professional Midwife by apprenticing with several local midwives.

It is my intention to honor your unique childbirth experience.  As a member of your labor support team, I draw on your desires along with my intuition and experience to provide physical, emotional and educational support for the birth of your baby.
