Obstetrics Services – 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
