My name is Giulia, pronounced Julia. I was born and raised in Asolo, Italy, a small town on the hills near Venice. I moved to the US in 2006 to be with my husband. After 9 moves in the Puget Sound and 7 different neighborhoods, we ended up in beautiful West Seattle and finally settled down.
I have always taken a special interest in Motherhood and women's postpartum emotional health, especially after the birth of my daughter in 2010. All those life-changing, intense, challenging and wonderful events surrounding her birth inspired me to become a doula.
I am currently also leading PEPS groups in the Seattle area (Program for Early Parent Support). I feel honored to be part of such an important chapter in their lives. I love supporting and guiding couples and single parents in their journey in becoming strong, competent, capable parents who trust themselves and know their inner strength.
