Welcome Mama!

Your world is about to change… or maybe it already has?

You know motherhood can be beautiful and joyful. You feel the wisdom of motherhood and the wisdom of your baby. You also see that in today’s world, connecting with this wisdom and finding flow as a mom has become harder than ever.

Pregnancy is a powerful experience and celebrated in our culture. Birth is focused on and carefully planned for throughout pregnancy as the culmination of the pregnancy journey. But the act of becoming a mother is often taken for granted… it’s an afterthought. This is what mothers tell me over and over again: that they wish they had more support and more preparation for their journey into motherhood. This was exactly my experience.

The truth is that when a baby is born, its mother is born too.

This deep transformation into motherhood is disruptive, because prior to becoming mothers we live in freedom in a world without the bonds of traditional society. But soon after motherhood begins, we find ourselves on an ancient journey of total giving, immense connection, and 24/7 devotion. It’s a beautiful thing, with many potential pitfalls and definite challenges – especially today, when the supportive community structure of the “village” has all but disappeared.

Today it is often mothers alone who must provide a solid foundation for their babies (no, it wasn’t always like this). The burden is heavy, and when we get started we know less than ever before about our babies: for many mothers, their newborn baby is the first newborn they have ever held. Meanwhile we face information overload and get bombarded with a myriad conflicting opinions about mothering, all zealously expressed online and offline.

As a mom, you know the balance you seek is possible, but you may not know how.

In fact, new mothers have always been intensively guided and supported by other women as they give birth to the mother within. While we no longer live alongside our sisters and aunts, and every baby is unique, mastering the art of motherhood is a matter of having the right ingredients. With a basic map and some support, navigating the broken waters of your early months with baby can be more magical – and a lot less scary. The great thing is, while we do sometimes need specific knowledge as moms, there are also some key elements which, once learned, allow us to shift our paradigm and access our own inner knowing. This is how we mothers find flow.

Beyond Expecting supports mothers and pregnant women to find confidence and wellbeing in motherhood so that they can feel more connected to their baby during the formative first months together.

Learn how to thrive in breastfeeding, sleep management, and venturing out into the world with your baby – even if the “village” is out of reach:

Postpartum Doula Services

Birth doulas have become popular in recent years, but traditionally doulas supported moms in the postpartum period. Working with you as a postpartum doula, I combine cutting-edge and traditional knowledge on moms and babies, hands-on support, and the tools to help you recover, embrace and nourish your baby with confidence, love yourself as a mom, and ultimately thrive.  Support and space for this kind of healing will make a difference to your life for years to come.

Prenatal Pilot Course

“Flow, Mama, Flow!” is my flagship prenatal course. Unlike other courses which focus on birth alone, it is my mission to provide the keys to flow through and after birth, and enjoy your first year with your baby. This course is for moms who want to optimize their postpartum experience, their own physical and emotional healing, and get their baby and their newborn mama-self off to the best possible start.  This course is suitable for both pregnant moms and fresh mothers.

Hello, I’m Julia – a mom, postpartum doula, and  naturopath. I help pregnant women and new mothers experience connection, confidence and wellbeing.

The ability to grow and adapt in response to life’s inevitable transitions is the key indicator of vibrant health. Through nourishing support and practical wisdom, I help new mothers thrive and avoid getting stuck in exhaustion and anxiety. I am especially passionate about hormonal and immune health, as these systems play a crucial role in how we adapt to our ever-changing lives – and no change is greater than the transition to motherhood.

Many years ago, I was inspired to become a naturopathic doctor by my desire to see a better world full of resilient families and children. Becoming a mom myself was so transformative and challenging that I have dedicated myself to learning from various experts on mother and baby health, sleep and nutrition. I am a certified postpartum doula with the Newborn Mothers Collective and work with new moms during the crucial first few months of motherhood.

As a licensed Naturopathic Doctor I offer my private clients highly individualized and transformative naturopathic care. I am a graduate of the University of British Columbia, where I studied biological psychology, and the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.
