Hello, I am Julia Larson, the founder of Urban Flora Doula Care. I'm based in Oakland, California, and I provide care for families throughout the greater bay area.
Urban Flora Doula Care is committed to finding the beauty & balance
between our deep-rooted human needs
& our modern medical technologies.
I come to you with a Cornerstone Labor & Postpartum Doula Certification,
a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, & a passion to nurture families.
I am here to see you as a whole person & provide personalized care to fit your needs.
During prenatal visits, I'll get to know your birth vision, provide education regarding options, discuss fears and practice comfort techniques. As labor progresses, I will transform your birth space into a dimly lit, relaxing atmosphere complete with lights, essential oils, sounds & my calming touch. During postpartum, we'll process your birth together, I'll instill confidence in you by providing support with baby care, lactation, body healing and anything in between.
I want people to follow their gut instincts & trust themselves.
This is your body, your choice, your baby & your family.
I will nurture you, keep you well-fed,
fully hydrated, & keep you and your team as comfortable as possible,
no matter how many pillows it may take.
I am here to relieve stress and normalize the birth
& postpartum process.
I'll keep it real with you.
I am an empathetic, calm, creative, music-lover
who strives to make every environment as cozy as possible.
I am passionate about cooking, floral design, exploring the world
& most of all making connections with others.
Let's get to know each other better!
