The Nesting Parent

A little about me...

Hi, I'm Jules! I am a birth doula & student Midwife. I have been a doula since 2013 and am honored to share my experience and education with expecting families in Ohio's Great Miami Valley.  

The way I approach birth is with a focus on informed consent and evidence-based practices. I have full respect for the birthing process and believe that every birthing person has the right to have their baby where & how they choose with the support of care providers and specialists that respect and honor not only the birth process but the individual needs and preferences of the birthing person. 

Sometimes there are instances where interventions are necessary. In these circumstances, I aim to help you navigate and stay informed about your options so that your needs and goals are advocated for with your health, well-being, and autonomy in mind.

I believe that every person deserves to have someone there to guide and assist them in making educated choices about their pregnancy, and remind them that they can trust the strength of their bodies during this time. I’m here to provide evidence-based information and emotional support. 

I believe every person deserves to be treated with respect and love, especially when bringing life into the world. This is why I have dedicated well over a decade of my life to learning as much as I can about the process. Over the last 10 years, I have completed my...

Some of my favorite Online Resources...

Great for parents on the go!

Don't have much time to sit down a read a book? Maybe that's not your preferred learning style... Not matter what, I've got a resource for you. Evidence Based Birth is a great online tool & podcast! Kellymom is a fantastic comprehensive tool for getting quick tips and tricks for feeding and postpartum. Spinning Babies is a great resource on how to move and support your body throughout pregnancy and especially in preparation for labor & childbirth.
