After studying Early Childhood Education at Cal State Monterey Bay I became a childcare provider and was surprised by how common cesareans and epidurals were among my clients. I married the punk rocker of my dreams in 2007 and on Valentines Day 2009 we discovered we were pregnant. When I could not find a local comprehensive natural childbirth class, I knew I would someday teach one. In 2012 I became one of California's first Birth Boot Camp instructors, and in 2015 I became an Evidence Based Birth instructor. I've given birth to four boys, each birth has been a unique experience: I've birthed after 42 weeks, at 3 different local hospitals and at home, with doctors and midwives, medicated and natural.
Advocating for options and safety in childbirth is something I live daily. I serve as President of the Birth Network of Monterey County, I am a Co-Leader of the International Cesarean Awareness Networks (ICAN) of Monterey County, and am on the Board of Directors for ImprovingBirth.org. I love sharing my passion and knowledge with parents who want to have an amazing birth! I teach childbirth classes in Monterey, Salinas, & Santa Cruz, California.

California Childbirth Educator

Birth Classes in Petaluma, California

Name: Julia Myers
Email: jmyers@birthbootcamp.com
I grew up in a family of seven children and have always been surrounded by mothers and babies. This upbringing instilled in me a love of everything connected to motherhood. After getting married and considering a family of my own, I dove into research about all things pregnancy and birth. While pregnant with my first child, my husband and I took a birth class and had a beautiful natural birth that sparked an even deeper passion into the natural birth world. I find an overwhelming amount of joy in educating parents about healthy pregnancies, natural birth, and intuitive parenting. I am currently in the process of becoming a certified doula with a long term goal of becoming a home birth midwife. I teach childbirth classes in Petaluma, California.

I am a dedicated DONA and toLabor trained birth doula who is also the mother of three boys. I am a certified lactation educator and childbirth educator as well. I have personally experienced both a medicated birth with an epidural and forceps delivery as well as two beautiful unmedicated births. In my role as a birth doula I have attended over 6o births and witnessed many different types of birth. These birth experiences sparked a passion in me for supporting mothers and their partners through this blessed and transformative period in their lives. Providing parents with the best evidence-based information on labour, birth, and breastfeeding, in addition to empowering parents to make their own decisions about all things concerning the birth of their baby, is my passion and I believe it’s the strongest foundation for achieving an amazing natural birth experience. You will always remember the birth of your baby...I’m committed to preparing you and your partner for a birth you will never want to forget! I teach birth classes in San Diego, California.

Birth Classes in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, California

Greetings! I teach Birth Boot Camp classes in the San Francisco Bay and Silicon Valley area of Northern California, with my home base being Mountain View, CA. As a mother of three, I have had a variety of birth experiences, which ultimately inspired me to become a birth advocate and childbirth educator. For my first birth, I did not have any particular desire to attempt a natural birth, however, after a scheduled cesarean due to breech positioning of my baby, I began to research the role that physiological birth could play in helping me to increase my chances of a normal vaginal birth when I became pregnant the second time around. During that time of recovery, I had a complete paradigm shift and was able to go on to have two unmedicated vaginal births after cesarean.
As a birth advocate and childbirth educator, I truly believe that knowledge is empowerment, and it is a privilege to have the opportunity to assist women in discovering and embracing their bodies so that they can feel confident and prepared regardless of how they birth. I look forward to walking this leg of your birth journey with you.

I have been a natural childbirth educator since 2007. I have helped dozens of couples on their journey toward natural birth and simply LOVE watching people learn, watching couples grow closer together, and seeing worried parents become confident and excited. I have given birth four times in various different places. My first child was born in a hospital, my second in a freestanding birth center, and my third and fourth were born at home. I am confident that I can help couples prepare for their birth no matter where they choose to do it and would feel privileged to join you on your journey. I teach birth classes in Ukiah, California.
