A midwife is a specialized medical professional dedicated to perinatal and postnatal care. A midwife assists parents through all stages of parenthood, from conception through to the first year of a baby’s life. At Kalila Community, our midwives offer a variety of services, from birth courses, home visits, one-to-one consultations, home birth attendance, accompanying parents on hospital births, breastfeeding support and postnatal rehabilitation.
All of our midwifery services are offered either in-studio or at home, depending on a mother’s preference. Our midwives are all bilingual (sometimes trilingual!) and are highly regarded experts in their field.
If you would to be put in touch with one of our midwives, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about our midwives, read their biographies below!
Meet Giulia Gavelli
Hello! My name is Giulia, and I’ve been a midwife since 2009. After graduating in midwifery, obtained in Bologna, with top marks, I worked in the territory of Bologna assisting home births, mothers and babies at home.
After two volunteer trips to India and North Africa, I started working in London, from 2011 to 2017. Here I worked in two large hospitals and I had the chance to gain a lot of experience in many areas of my profession: from the delivery room, to the birth centre, in nursery wards, in outpatient clinics and also at home.
Also in London, I expanded my training with a Masters in Child Mental Health from Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust.
Thanks to this course and the people I have met during these experiences, I have made the importance of respecting birth, families, their choices and cultures my own. That is why I feel a great responsibility, honor and privilege in this profession.
In 2017, I arrived in Milan and also became a mother (of Ettore). During the maternity period I met Kalila Community, which with its unique atmosphere gave me serenity, support and confrontation in a period as delicate as becoming a mother (in a new city for more).
Once I resumed my professional activity after maternity, I continued my activity as a midwife, as a Libera Professionista in Milan, continuing my training and became an A.i.m.i. child massage educator, a Positive Birth educator and Babybrains.
I’ll be at Kalila Community for:
- preparatory group or individual courses
- hypnobirthing laboratories: the positive childbirth
- Babybrains courses
- parenting support
- consultations in pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding, weaning
- home visits in postpartum
- breastfeeding support visits
