Julie Moon, CNM

Julie Moon has been a Midwife at AFHBC since 2014.  Before that she worked as a labor and delivery nurse and childbirth educator in Ketchikan and Kodiak for 14 years.

Julie has had a passion for birth since she was a young girl listening to her mother and aunts talk about birth and babies as each cousin was added to her family. Julie believes pregnancy and birth are all a process to help a couple grow themselves as parents, and she loves nothing more than helping couples find their path as parents in the way that is right for them.

Julie has three young children, and an amazing husband who retired from the Coast Guard and stays at home with their children while she pursues her dream of midwifery.  She enjoys yoga, kayaking, hiking, camping, and travelling with her family, reading until the early hours, gardening, and experiencing new things.

Julie had her last child at home, and is grateful to be able to help other women find their way to the right birth for themselves and their babies.  She is also excited to offer well woman care to AFH&BC, and to be able to provide holistic, evidence based medical care to women from puberty to menopause.
