I am so glad you made it here.

Take a deep breath; in through your nose

Hold that breath for a moment

Gently begin to exhale through your lips formed to a small opening

Slowly and gently blow out any stress you may be feeling

Blow it out and away

Be still

Relax your shoulders

Repeat another breath just like that

  • Julie is amazing! So knowledgeable, helpful, and accessible. I set up an appointment just after my daughter was born and she was able to help right away. I’ve recommended her to two other friends and they also had great experiences.

  • Julie’s success stories speak for themselves. I’ve met countless women who have benefitted tremendously by Julie’s expertise and comfort. Many more have been helped through her wonderful presence on social media. I am just one of these women. At one point, my nipples were chapped and nearly bleeding. One visit from Julie turned things around. She’s amazing

  • Julie saved my breastfeeding relationship with my daughter and I couldn’t be more grateful. Six days in and I was ready to quit. Julie listened when others just told me to stick it out and that the pain was normal. Turns out my daughter was tongue and lip tied. Fourteen months later, we are still breastfeeding. Thanks for listening and caring Julie!
