Natasha was incredible.
This was our first child, and she had to step in for our primary Doula, but we had taken our prenatal course with her, so her being our backup was perfect.
While I was helping my wife through her contractions, Natasha was like a second pair of arms for me. This was so great for us as my wife had expressed that she wanted minimal people present. I think Natasha had this in mind and that's why she was like a ghost.
All I needed to do was point to something and she would have it in my hand in seconds. When both of my hands were occupied (during transition and pushing, holding both of my wife's hands) she took over all of what I was doing as if we planned and practised it.
As a first time dad who was skeptical of having a home birth at first, I cannot imagine having a home birth without a Doula who was as attentive and gentle as Natasha. I would strongly recommend her to anyone within earshot.
All in all, our birth went absolutely perfectly, and Natasha was a huge part of that.
11/10, would absolutely have her again in a heartbeat.
I 100% recommend Natasha to anyone who is considering hiring a doula.
Myself and my husband had our first child this passed August; we had an at home water birth. Natasha was our doula's backup, and she ended up attending our birth in place of our original due to unforeseen circumstances.
Natasha was absolutely wonderful! We were well acquainted with her, as we attended her birthing course (which I also recommend!), and she definitely had us feeling safe and at ease before the big day. While I personally didn't need need much during labour and delivery, she was amazing at helping my husband help me. My husband was my primary support, holding my tumbler up for me to sip, putting a cool cloth on me, holding the bucket when I felt nauseous. But he never left my side, so it was Natasha grabbing these things to refill/rinse out for him.
Natasha is worth her weight in gold. She does it all, from prenatal classes, to labour and birth support, to placenta encapsulation post-delivery. But don't take my word for it... Hire her and see for yourself how great she is!
Natasha is a compassionate, caring, and supportive doula. She worked well with my husband and unobtrusively supported me during labour. We were very comfortable with her and felt she was very professional, yet personable. I would highly recommend her services to anyone wanting birth support.
