About The Trainer

A little about the trainer

Julie Thompson AdvCD (DONA); CLC;  BdtCD(DONA)

 I love God, Family, my church family, babies, my dog Bubbie, beaches, my new home in Russell, gardening, canning, baking, the sunshine, reading, teaching, empowering women through birth, double rainbows, organic food, my apple trees, diversity, seeing my birth families as they go through life, shared stories, answering questions, Listening, missionary work, traveling to teach, geocaching with my Remy Gray, Sage Faryn, and Willow Logan, being in the woods, dancing just for the fun of it, running in the rain, and spending time with people. I know for sure I've never met a stranger!

 I am a blessed mother of 4!  I am a Nana of five beautiful children, Timothy, Remy, Sage, Arianna, And Willow! And one due any day now!  I have been married for 44 years to a farm boy, antique dealer, Mark. We have lived in a 3rd generation family owned farm house in a little town in Sugar Grove, Pennsylvania, where Amish buggies are everywhere, but we just moved back to my home-town Russell, PA!

I decided to become a DONA International birth doula trainer so I could also bring this International organization to Australia, Honduras, Mexico, and other countries along with trainings all over the USA.  I love conducting workshops and look forward to teaching them! I went on a Mission trip to Honduras to teach childbirth education, breastfeeding, and attended a few births! I have met many beautiful people in my workshops who share a passion for this work.  I have been a doula for 24 years, was designated the AdvCD(DONA) status, have been a certified postpartum doula 9 1/2 years, on the certification committee for DONA 19 years, a Childbirth educator at our local hospital for 8 years, an approved DONA birth doula trainer for 15 years, and a pregnancy massage therapist for 12 years and teach childbirth education to families through zoom.us and in-person.    I am also certified as an Infant massage Instructor. I feel blessed to have been taught by Penny Simkin, (One of the founders of DONA),  http://www.dona.org/
