My heart overflows with gratitude for Natalie Grammer of Maine Doulas who helped my partner & I have the beautiful birth we had hoped for. Not only did she support me emotionally leading up to nirthing day, but the incredible Natalie was our HypnoBirthing instructor. She showed up to our home after my first 6 hours of active labor and her firm hands and calm voice gave me the confidence to get to 9 hours before we finally left for the hospital. She was with me for nearly every surge applying relieving counter pressure or offering ice to my forehead sometimes simultaneously. She supported my birth partner and helped me to understand hospital jargon without it being overwhelming. And in a moment I will never forget she invited me to go deeply inward to a place where I arrived at profound trust in myself and in my body. I don't know if I'll ever be able to replicate that self trust in my meditation practice or elsewhere but it is one of the best gifts I have ever received. Thank you, Natalie. I am blessed to have had you as my doula!

My husband and I considered using a doula for some time before we decided to. Since this was our first pregnancy, we had no idea what to expect during childbirth. We wanted to make sure we had enough help and support to get us through the process. I was initially hesitant about adding someone to my support team thinking that my husband and I could figure things out on our own. Looking back now, I can’t imagine giving birth without Natalie there. Her calming presence, support and encouragement throughout the whole process were incredible. She had an amazing way of relaxing me through her words and hands, providing counter pressure, massage and comfort whenever each was needed. We can’t say enough of how appreciative we are that Natalie was there to help us through this amazing process.
Thank you Natalie!!!!

Natalie is extraordinary, and I cannot imagine having had a better experience. She has a calming prescence that instantly put my partner and me at peace, and she went above and beyond what we expected. 

During her routine visits she expressed a geniune interest in the pregnancy and any concerns we had, and her expertise was always able to guide us to a solution or approrpriate reference. Natalie is incredibly knowledgable and well connected, so we knew we could always count on her for advice. She is open minded and never judgemental, proceeding with a gental smile. 

The doula hip squeeze that she performed during my labor was magical. The entire experience, thanks to guidance from Natalie, was unlike what I had thought. She also checked in on my partner before, during, and after labor to make sure he was feeling comfortable. She made sure he ate and took breaks. From the moment we met her, and even now, we felt that there was someone watching out for us and helping us navigate a world in which we had very little prior experience. 

Natalie checked in on us several times after the labor, and it was the support I received then for which I will never stop being grateful. If we choose to have another child, our first step will be to contact Natalie. I cannot imagine what the process would be like without her. 

Anyone who is able to work with Natalie through pregnancy and during labor is an incredibly fortunate individual. She has been an extraordinary force, and we will never forget how much she has helped us.
