ABOUT me

Hello! I am Júlia, a young, passionate, tender, warm-hearted woman and the doula behind this webpage (and the drawings!)

Besides being a birth and postnatal doula, I am a social and cultural anthropologist, specialised in peace and conflict studies and women's rights. Working as a social researcher with a great interest in political violence and woman's role as peacebuilders, I never thought there would be a place for me in the world of childbirth. And how unexpectedly life unfolds...!

After spending half of my life secretly incubing a passion for all about pregnancy and childbearing, I moved from Barcelona to Edinburgh in 2018, where I finally gave myself the opportunity to explore the strong calling to support women through this journey and I completed the Concious Birthing Doula Course with Kate Woods in March 2019. 

I attended my first birth as a doula in April, and it just happened so naturally, I easily embraced the role of a woman unconditionally supporting a mother, and felt as if somewhere inside me there has always been a doula. 

I am currently working as a conflict resolution workshops facilitator in primary schools in Edinburgh. In my free time I am also a contemporary dancer, a nature lover and a passionate reader. 
I am a qualified Yoga Teacher and a Pregnancy and Postnatal yoga teacher. I teach some yoga classes around and also offer one-to-one private sessions! 

I am currently a mentored doula, which means that while I am supporting you, I am supported by more experienced doulas. I love to think that while I am mothering and nurturing other women, I have beside me the experience and stories, the wisdom, the knowledge and the support of other doulas around me, who also are amazing mothers.

 
I am a member of the
Scottish Doula Network and of Doulas Without Borders, and I am ready and happy to support you through your own, unique, amazing and transformative journey.
