Testimonial for Natalie Lynch

Natalie was our postpartum doula for our first child. My pregnancy involved a few surprises along the way, like the fact that I'd need to have a planned c-section, as well as the spread of COVID turning into a pandemic during my second trimester. Both these things changed the course of my pregnancy and prenatal care, and Natalie was an amazing source of support and knowledge during this time. She guided me in getting second opinions about my need for a c-section. When it became clear that I would have to have a c-section (something that I was initially very disappointed and nervous about), she later helped me craft a birth plan for a c-section that allowed me to really learn about, plan, and advocate for the type of birth I wanted. Because of this, I had a very positive experience delivering my daughter via c-section. Natalie also helped my partner and I create a strong plan for the postpartum time period. She provided us with resources on things like monitoring for postpartum depression, dividing up our household chores/tasks, and staying connected and communicative during our first few weeks as parents.

While I unfortunately did not get to experience Natalie's support during delivery (due to hospital restrictions because of COVID, as well as the type of delivery I had), I am confident that she would be an amazing advocate in the room during labor and delivery. She is reliable, thoughtful, organized, knowledgeable, full of energy, and truly passionate about pregnancy, birth, and babies.

Pregnancy, childbirth, and adjusting to life with a baby can be confusing, unpredictable, and challenging. As a doula, Natalie acts as an advocate and source of support during this time - she doesn't make decisions for you or tell you what she would do. Instead, she helps you craft questions, seek out information, and advocate for yourself and your baby at various stages of your pregnancy. I enthusiastically recommend her as a doula!
