I'm Natasha, and I'm a mother to 4 spirited children. My family, along with our dogs, cats, and reptiles reside in Spruce Grove AB, where we have called it home for the last 12 years. I have lived all over our beautiful country, from as far east as Newfoundland, to west in BC, and up north in the NT. Living all over the place, has given me 4 distinct births, and a lot of experience to think about what new families want in the birth room.
I have been a practicing doula for over 10 years, and have worked in all Edmonton area hospitals, along with the local Lucina Birth Center, and home births. During my time as a doula, I have worked along side local midwives, in office to assist clients along their journey. Over the past 10 years, I have worked with over 400 pregnant and birthing families! I have experience working with VBAC, Single, LGBTQ, Loss, and Multiples. As a teen mom myself, I also specialize in teen pregnancy support, and am connected to a local non profit for families experiencing extra need during pregnancy.
I take my role as doula very seriously, and in doing so I am forever upgrading my skills. I have taken training through DONA, Stillbaby University, and GK University. I am currently enrolled in The Cultured Doula Program, and have recently completed my Masters Rebozo with GKU. As a placenta specialist I have trained with PBiU and have my Blood Bourne Pathogens certificate updated yearly.
I look forward to discussing your birth plans with you!
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.
