to connect with your baby and 

 being pregnant? 

 heck yeah! 

wouldn't it feel

Are you missing the magic 
of pregnancy amidst life's constant motion?

But amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's easy to miss the chance to connect with it on a deeper, more meaningful level.  

Pregnancy comes with a deluge of information – what to eat, what not to eat, how to exercise, what baby stuff to buy. It's overwhelming.

And let's be real. Pregnancy isn't easy. Sometimes it really sucks. Nausea, exhaustion, back pain, weird symptoms that lead to endless late-night googling (it's not just me, right?)

It's no wonder it can often feel impossible to really drop into this experience. But the downside? We miss out on the joy that's possible right now, and accessing the creative power inside us that's especially potent during pregnancy.

Before you know it, those nine months will have zipped by, and you'll find yourself tending to an adorable little bundle of joy who demands your constant attention. The moments for introspection and exploration may become scarce for a while.

Let's seize the opportunity you have right now.

A six week online journey to transform your experience of pregnancy and nurture your creative soul

I kept getting to the end of the day feeling like I was letting my pregnancy slip by without really paying attention.  Can you relate?

So I went on a quest for a pregnancy course or program that could give me a nudge and some structure. I wanted to find something that would be fun and easy, but also meaningful. That made space for me to explore my thoughts and feelings about motherhood and prepare for birth. And bonus if it gave me a chance to play and express my creativity.
Guess what I found? 


I found birth prep courses and prenatal yoga. Nutrition courses and parenting courses.
But nothing that dealt with the inner experience of pregnancy. And certainly nothing that invited me to tap into my playful, creative, artistic self (parts of me that, by the way, are super essential in parenting.)

So, since I happen to be an expressive arts therapist, I decided to create one myself. 
You're welcome. ;)

Hi, I'm Julia. When I got pregnant last year, I just couldn't seem to carve out space in my busy life to fully experience this amazing time. 

My story

You have lots of thoughts and feelings swimming around about motherhood and this big transition, but you can't seem to make the time to work through them.

You want to connect more to your baby and how crazy miraculous this whole thing is, but that seems to always get buried under the mountain of pregnancy "to-dos".

Yeah, you're creating a baby, but it feels like your own creativity is on the back burner. And you miss it.

You wanted to love pregnancy, but the truth is you are NOT feeling the magic. You're just feeling tired. And like you're missing out on the "incredible" experience you imagined.

You know this could be a more meaningful experience and you want to make the most of it, but you're not sure how (beyond maybe going to prenatal yoga.)

Let me know if this sounds like you...

I've been there too

And I've got you

Know, without a doubt, that you are making the most of this one wild and precious pregnancy.
(To paraphrase Mary Oliver.)


Make art and create with joy and freedom as you discover a treasure trove of inner wisdom and gain tools  that will support you in parenting and beyond

Fully enjoy the power and magic of pregnancy as you deepen your relationship with yourself, your baby, and OWN this transition into becoming a mother (or mother again) 


Imagine how it would feel to

Conscious Beginnings


here's what we'll cover

What's inside

I developed Create Your Awesome Pregnancy because I wanted an extraordinary, creativity-filled experience of pregnancy for myself. And once I started developing the tools, I just knew had to share them. 

I'm sharing all of my wisdom as a mama, Artist and therapist so that you can have your best pregnancy.

I've traveled the world, spent most of my adult life in the Bay Area, and now I live at an ecovillage in upstate New York. I hike, swim and yes, cross-country ski, right outside my door (winters here are long!) And my kiddos get to grow up in the "village" that everyone is searching for. I've explored more art forms than I can count, and currently I perform as a storyteller. I've also been a psychotherapist for fifteen years and have helped transform hundreds of people's lives through deep emotional work, loving connection, and of course, creativity and play. 

I'm an expressive arts therapist, a mama to two amazing girls, and a lover of all things creative.

The course has been so fun and refreshing, there hasn't been anything else like it in my pregnancy so far. I feel light and positive after doing a module and it breaks up my to-do-list attitude the rest of the week about all the prep I want to do before my birth.

I adore the course! I've been leaving each module feeling centered and joyous in a way that I've barely felt through my pregnancy experience. THANK YOU!

What people are saying...

A wonderful way to tap back into my creativity!

I was able to move beyond the judging mind, and into a space of self discovery and self expression. Julia holds a fun, nurturing and supportive space that helped me to feel safe exploring.

Julia’s course was a welcome respite from my busy and work-centered life. It was a real treasure to get to tap into my child-self, exploring so many avenues of play and creativity.

Julia’s welcoming, jubilant, and non-judgmental spirit helped me connect with myself and be unafraid to make mistakes.

What people are saying...

As a seasoned expressive arts therapist, I've witnessed the profound transformation this process brings in private sessions. In "Create Your Awesome Pregnancy" you're getting the essence of that work, distilled into a self-paced course you can do from the comfort of your couch.

The cost of a similar journey in a one-on-one setting could easily surpass $3,000.
You currently have access to this powerful work for ONLY $197.

I've made the price super accessible because I believe in the power of this process to change lives, and I want it to reach as many people as possible.
