Doulas Mentoring Doulas

with Julie McBurney Founder and Leader

"Julie has been a mentor to me in mothering, my reiki practice, and as a doula.  She has a wonderful intuition, fantastic listening skills, a truly calming presence, and years of experience in the birth world here in the triangle area of NC.  She has relationships with many other doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants, and health care providers (midwives, doctors, chiropractors, & acupuncturists).  I never hesitate to talk with Julie when I am struggling with a difficult issue or when I am simply looking for some more information or a referral.
