Pelvic Floor Health Birth Doula

Natalie and Paul kissing baby_edited.png

Natural birth is what comes naturally to you, according to your personal needs and desires. I have had three natural births, two of them water births. I am a believer in the power of a woman’s body to birth her baby. I help to create the sacred space for you to have the birth story you desire for you and your child. I help you to understand the difference between “pain with a purpose” and “suffering” in labor.

I am not hired to speak for you. You hire me to educate you and your partner, and to provide you a trusted guide during the birthing process so that you can “own your birth.” What does “owning your birth” mean? It means you are able to communicate confidently with the medical professionals about

your informed choices.

Because of my extensive birth and life experience, I am able to help you be seen and

heard by medical doctors and staff. The field of Obstetrics can often feel more

mechanistic and focused on medical control and interventions, than supporting and

honoring a woman’s ability to naturally birth her baby. Setting the tone for the birth room

in a positive way is an art form and one of the vital tools I am able to offer my birth clients.

Due to my ability to help the medical staff feel calm and safe while we navigate a birth

family’s individual birth preferences, my clients have a greater ability to create their

positive birth story.


I offer a “boutique style” approach which means I schedule one birth family each month

or so (versus multiple clients each month) to ensure I can give each family my calm,

focused and undivided attention. Supporting and guiding women, SMBC and couples

through navigating prenatal appointments with medical staff, gaining clarity and confidence for their birth preferences, and building trust for the birth team, are all part of mom having a positive birth experience.



My Pelvic Floor Health Doula Packages include a Birth Partner Workshop and manual to provide my clients with the following tools for “owning their birth”:


  • Birth Wisdom Yoga Birth Breathing and Softening

  • Hands-on teaching of comfort measures for back labor and discomfort in labor.

  • Photos and the teaching of research-based poses to create space as baby rotates and descends in childbirth.

  • Positions for mom for the pushing phase of labor that optimize room for baby.

  • My Integrative Pelvic Floor Health program to support and prepare the pelvic floor for birth, and the postpartum healing period.

  • Pelvic Floor Breathing and Body Alignment for an Optimal Birth Experience.

  • How to "breathe your baby out" and protect your perineum.

  • How to advocate peacefully with hospital staff for a positive birth experience.

  • Informed consent questions with specific ways to advocate with your care provider if interventions are recommended.

  • Supporting mom through each stage of labor.

  • Creating Intimate Space for Mom and Baby to ensure a positive birth experience.

  • Decisions to discuss with your care provider before the birth.

  • Discussion of all of your plans, concerns and questions, to help ensure you have comfort and clarity moving forward. 

  • When to go to the birth center and what it will look like when you arrive there.

  • Tips for nurturing yourself after your baby is born.



Pelvic Floor Birth Doula packages include the following:


1. Complimentary meet and interview appointment, in-person, virtual or by phone.

2. A 3-4-hour Prenatal appointment, which includes my very popular Birth Partner and “Dudela” training workshop, so your partner will learn everything they need to know to support you mentally and physically in birth.

*This appointment is also customized for SMBC.  

3. A copy of my book, Birth Wisdom Yoga Remedies and Journal to prepare weekly for birth.

4. A copy of the Birth Partner Training Guide.

"Julia’s presence, coaching, support, wisdom and care helped us have a birth of our child that could not have been scripted any better. Everything we had hoped for, came true. We will be forever grateful for what Julia Piazza has done for us, and more importantly for our child."

     "I love Julia and Birth Wisdom Yoga. I stumbled across her website when I was looking for prenatal yoga closer to where I live (about 45 minutes from Folsom), and decided to give her class a try just to see if it would be worth the drive. Not only was it well worth the drive, I honestly would go more than twice a week if more classes were offered! Julia creates such a warm and welcoming environment and the class is truly a sanctuary amid the stress that can accompany pregnancy. She's so knowledgeable and helpful. The classes are healing and informative -- I haven't had any sciatic nerve pain since devoting myself to the exercises and stretches that she recommends. Her doula knowledge is so fully integrated into the yoga classes that I come out of each class not only invigorated but also more informed and empowered."
