You might be overwhelmed with advice and unending thoughts about becoming new parents, being pregnant and the delivery of your baby. The way you are feeling is totally normal!
Your visits with your Doctor are probably short, with little information being given, there are so many tests you must get through and on top of it you may be experiencing unwanted pregnancy symptoms like nausea, exhaustion, and indigestion AND you likely hear horror birth stories way too often. Plus, you KNOW you want to do everything in your power to have a healthy pregnancy and baby, and a labor that is as easy as possible.
I am here to GUIDE you through your Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond!
HI, I'M JUSTINE
Doula. Mom. Holistic Health Coach. Friend.
I am a Certified Doula, Health Coach and Yoga Instructor. I've been in your shoes - I know what it’s like when you’re pregnant, and you’re wanting to look and feel your best, and have a healthy baby, while also preparing and stressing over all the uncertainty of labor and becoming a mom (or bringing another child into the world).
You likely also want to know and prepare for a quick, easy and positive birth.
I’ve helped many women like you look and feel amazing during their pregnancy, have a positive birth experience and transition into the post-partum period like a pro!
HOW I CAN HELP YOU
As an experienced Doula, my goal is to give you and your family the attention and knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your pregnancy and labor.
Our journey together starts as early as you like- whether it be at 6 weeks or 36 weeks pregnant. I want you to feel prepared to have a healthy pregnancy, labor, birth and post-partum period so that you will feel empowered, calm and confident. This allows you to have the birth you want.
BIRTH DOULA SERVICES
Birth Doulas are a crucial link in modern maternity care! Researchers have found that women who have a Doula during labor have better birth outcomes: They are 4x less likely to have a low birth weight baby, 2x less likely to experience birth complications for them or baby and significantly more likely to initiate breastfeeding. Overall, they have a much more positive birth experience.
There are 2 ways we can work together: Virtual or In-Person.
Both options include open lines of communication throughout your pregnancy and leading up to birth for informational and emotional support, including applicable resources as your pregnancy progresses. This support continues after birth, too!
As your Doula, I am on-call for you 24/7 from 37 weeks of pregnancy until birth.
IN PERSON SUPPORT
2 Prenatal Meetings
IN-PERSON labor support on the big day! (if the hospital allows doulas, or for a homebirth)

WHY WORK WITH ME?!
I am a Doula & much more!
I AM A CERTIFIED BIRTH DOULA
As a Birth Doula I was trained in supporting women and families throughout pregnancy, labor and postpartum. I was extensively trained in child birth education so that I can educate my clients. I actively work with a renowned Doula as my mentor, who has over 200+ births under her belt, so that I can constantly learn & grow to better support you. My goal is to support you in bringing a healthy baby into this world!
I AM A CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH
As a Health Coach, I also provide you with nutritional coaching and guidance throughout your pregnancy, and post-partum so that you can look and feel your best and ease any negative pregnancy symptoms through food and supplements. I have access to discounts at the largest online supplement dispensary so that I can recommend the best and safest supplements for you during your pregnancy.
I AM A CERTIFIED YOGA INSTRUCTOR
As a Certified Yoga Instructor, I bring my knowledge and training of yoga, breathwork and meditation to my clients to better serve them so that they can feel good, look good and stay positive throughout this transformative time in their lives. I include guided meditations, breathwork suggestions and yoga routines (if clients are interested!) in all my packages, free of charge!
I AM A MOM - I'VE BEEN IN YOUR SHOES!
Lastly, I am a mom, just like you! I've gone through the experience of pregnancy and childbirth myself. Through my personal and professional experiences I have learned a lot about a lot :) My clients lean on me for advice and support outside of just pregnancy and delivery: breastfeeding support, baby nutrition, sleep advice, non-toxic product recommendations, meal planning & prep and much more!

Justine was amazing! She provided me with an abundance of education and comfort throughout the later half of my pregnancy and during labor itself. She helped my partner and I during one of the most important days of our life and helped me to achieve the birth that I wanted and we had planned for. I knew I wanted a natural and unmedicated birthing experience and Justine helped me prepare both mentally and physically for it!
