My Story
Headshot 2 .jpg

Welcome! My name is Julia (she/her) and I am founder/owner of Dear Doula located in Rochester, NY. I am a certified Birth and Postpartum Doula. I have supported families through non-medicated/medicated births, planned inductions, cesarean births, and vaginal birth after cesarean.


I am also a certified Childbirth Educator and a certified Breastfeeding Counselor through the International Doula Institute. I find these extra bits of knowledge useful during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. In additional to birth work, I practice as a therapist and specialize in perinatal mental health. 

My goal is to build a positive, trusting, and caring relationship with you and your partner to ensure that you will feel empowered and informed every step of the way. 

If you're looking for birth support and would like to chat more, I would love to hear about your pregnancy journey.
