Birth Mark Doula, Toronto
Specialties: birth, postpartum, loss support
Natalie (she/her) hails from Toronto, Ontario. With over 20 years of doula experience, she has dedicated herself towards assisting families with their doula needs. Her experience includes education on natural or belly births, adoption, fostering loss or abortion, as well as, prenatal and postnatal care for the whole family. Natalie has also increased her educational background with certification(s) in: childcare, medical administration, community services, first aid and foster care - all areas of expertise focused to better hone her doula skills.
Her own experiences with pregnancy and childbirth pushed her to continuously grow and expand her knowledge base of being an even better doula. No labouring person should go through an experience like childbirth blindfolded and feeling as if they have no options.
Natalie’s passion has been enduring for providing informational, physical, and emotional support for people during their pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum journeys. Natalie considers herself a resource to the families that she works with by helping navigate medical terminology, protocols and systems, while allowing trust and comfort to flow naturally between herself and the client. Ever since witnessing her first live birth she was hooked into the world of child birth advocacy.
