Welcome to my Doula Blog! I hope you find it interesting and informative.

My name is Natalie. I am a wife, a mother of almost five boys, a doula, and a Hypnobabies Instructor! I'm passionate about childbirth and hope to help women realize the power that is in them to birth more normally and naturally. It's my goal to help women feel confident and comfortable during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Yes, it is possible! It's also amazing, incredible, wonderful, empowering, and life changing.

As a doula, I am a trained professional who understands and trusts the process of birth. I provide continuous care for the laboring mother and her partner. Studies have shown that when doulas attend births, labors are shorter with fewer complications. I attend to women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience in both home and hospital settings. I draw on my knowledge and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with the other members of your birth team to make sure that you have the information that you need to make informed decisions in labor. I can provide reassurance and perspective to the laboring mother and her partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort.

Thanks for stopping by!

Morning Sickness has hit...

I'm a little over 5 weeks and I'm feeling the sickness coming on.  I have the blessing of feeling sick all day long. I wake up and go to sleep feeling nauseous. I can't wait for the sensitive gag reflex that kicks me into dry-heaving fits. Here goes nothing.
I did go to the store to stock up on snacks. I also bought Vitamin B and Ginger Pills. Along with my essential oils, I hope I can find some relief in all of this!
