I’m not sure I would have survived my birth experience without Natalie! I had a long early labour (30 hours) and Natalie was there for me from the time I called her in the middle of the night, until we were settled after the delivery and my baby was latched and feeding!

From her calming presence to her coaching me through difficult contractions, Natalie was invaluable during my labour at home, at the birth centre and then later, at the hospital. She helped my husband find the words to be a supportive partner and her pre- and post-natal visits provided us with the additional support we needed. I recommend Natalie to any expecting parents that want a kind, caring and supportive doula.

We were lucky to work with Natalie for the birth of our son, which did not go remotely as planned! Natalie worked extensively with us in the lead up to his birth to understand our goals and checked in frequently before I went into labor. She was a present and active participant through a very long birthing process, and was a steadfast source of calm and support….

We hired Natalie because my partner thought it would be a good idea to have back up support during my labour. At the time I had very little understanding of what exactly the role of a doula would be, but after meeting with Natalie I knew we had to hire her. Natalie is so knowledgeable about birth, how to prepare, possible unforeseen outcomes, as well as providing support when you bring your baby home.  I credit Natalie’s guided meditation during labour with helping me progress when labour had stalled. Her support after birth helped keep us sane.
