Julie-SwehlaJulie Swehla Postpartum Doula

Hi! I’m Julie and I am a mother of eleven children, 9 born at home, the last four with Claudette as midwife. I am a Christian mother and believe that God made birthing a natural and normal process. I believe strongly in home-births and love the birthing process and desire to take care of and help birthing families.

As a trained Doula in partnership with Claudette, who has been a great friend for many years, I can help you with newborn care, breastfeeding issues, emotional and physical recovery after birth, help with household chores like cooking meals, light cleaning and laundry so you may get the rest you need.

I offer night-time care as well. Call to discuss rates and packages and to schedule care for the weeks after your birth.

I cannot emphasize enough how happy and grateful my husband and I were to have had Julie Swehla’s help and support during our 1st week home from the hospital with our first baby, Giselle. Julie was gracious, knowledgeable, compassionate and confident. She was there to make sure I was comfortable, helped with breastfeeding, listened intently and offered advice. Being a new parent can be very overwhelming, but having Julie’s support gave us great peace of mind and we were able to really enjoy our time with our new daughter. We can’t thank her enough with helping with maintaining the house – keeping it clean and organized at all times. I will never forget how she always made sure I was staying hydrated and I was never without a beverage. Soooo helpful while breastfeeding!!! She is an awesome chef, too, and kept us well fed! Julie’s postpartum support has been invaluable….We really couldn’t recommend anyone more highly to help you in this incredible journey you’re on, of bringing your child into the world. She continues to follow up with us, always happy to provide love & support.
