Client Testimonials for Natalie Connell

Post a testimonial for Natalie Connell



We loved having Natalie as a postpartum doula. Since we are first time parents (and don't have the option of family members nearby for assistance, Natalie's support (particularly the emotional support she proffered) was of real value. When I expressed my concerns about breastfeeding, Natalie brought me an informative book that helped to ease my anxieties. When I wanted nothing more than to be able to take a nice shower, she took care of my daughter while I was able to unwind. When I needed someone to talk to, she was a good listener. In sum, I absolutely recommend having Natalie as a doula without any hesitation.

Natalie was an amazing asset for us. She was authentic, compassionate, and blended right in. Having her in our lives at our most vulnerable never felt clunky. Her ability to navigate our chaos with an unobtrusive ease is a true gift. 

Bringing our daugher home to her 1.5 year old big brother while I was a full time grad student was overwhelming. Natalie was so crucial to that transition. She played with our son while we made dinner. She held the baby while I took a sitz bath. She cleaned our son's toys while we put him to bed/nursed. She stayed with my daughter while I was in class for 3 hours a night. 

Giving me the confidence to leave a 2 week old with her and concentrate in class was amazing amazing reality. Natalie knew how important my breastfeeding relationship was so she (unprompted) learned my daughters rooting signs. She knew how important attachment was, so she wore or held my daughter. She knew that my anxiety was high (thanks hormones) while in class, so she sent me text updates. I wouldn't have been able to do it without her. 


If you're on the fence about getting a doula, please do yourself the favor and bring Natalie into your house just as a test. You'll see what I'm unable to express. Her talent is understanding what a precarious time postpartum is and responding to what needs to happen without being asked.
