GIULIA PICCOLINI

SHE/HER

BIRTH, POSTPARTUM & NIGHT DOULA (DONA)

“From a very young age, I was in awe of babies, including my younger brother, and was often referred to as the baby “whisperer”. Growing up I had the chance to care for a multitude of cousins, and family friend’s babies. This added knowledge and experience, as well as a fascination with pregnancy, childbirth led me to go on to complete a Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology with the pursuit of additional education to specialize further. I am currently a student of Naturopathic Medicine with a focus in Maternal Wellness. I love a holistic approach to everything I do.

The want and gratification of helping others is what led me into Doula Work. I have completed my training with DONA International as a Childbirth Educator, Birth & Postpartum Doula.

My goal always is for parents to feel safe and heard and to never feel judged. I love witnessing parents see their true potential and embrace their new roles. I would love to champion you and be a pillar of support for you and your family.
