Welcome to Birth Essentials

Empowered birthing information that waves overwhelm goodbye and invites reflective conversations instead

All minus the jargon.

“How can I prepare for the unpredictability of birth?”

The greatest knowledge and power for a positive birth lies within YOU.

What if you didn’t…

  • Allow your MANY questions to keep you up at night?

  • Assume you and your partner are on the same page?

  • Let your fear rule what should be a deeply connected experience?

  • Accept recommendations without knowing you’re making informed choices?

What if you set yourself up for an emotionally positive experience no matter what―on your terms?

What if you started taking your birth experience into your own hands?

You pick the topic. We’ve got the guide to match.

Birth Essentials is not just for one type of birth.


We believe that an emotionally positive birth is possible with empowered decisions and emotional awareness by your side.


Even when things don’t go to plan.

That’s why we’ve designed our empowered birthing information with YOU in mind.

Your questions.

Your emotions.

Your fears.

And your experiences.


"Informative, Personal, Professional. Julia has put so much effort into these guides and they included all the knowledge and information she has collected throughout her experience as a doula. Each of the questions require you to look within, feel and think about what you want and how you want it."

Hi, I’m Julia

Birth Passionista, Birth Essentials Founder & Birth and Postnatal Doula

My journey into the glorious world of birthing started close to 10 years ago.

It was a pivotal moment in my life that saw me leave a high-flying corporate career behind to be more present with my firstborn and support fellow women on their personal journey into motherhood instead.

And that’s what I’ve been doing as a certified Birth & Postnatal Doula on the sunny Central Coast just north of Sydney, Australia. Right where I get to enjoy the joys of motherhood with my 2 cheeky boys and my supportive hubby.

Over the years, I’ve continued to expand my birthing expertise and have emotionally guided 150+ expecting mothers and their partners through the wonders of birth and beyond.

Birth Essentials is my way to make my empowering take on birth education accessible to even more women―women like you who have the right to birth in an informed and emotionally supported way.

I strongly believe that it matters not only how we are born but how us women feel during the process. And initiating this emotional process through conversations with yourself and your partner is the best way to respect your emotional and physical needs.

The empowered way to prepare for birth.

One guide at a time.
