Natasha, Postpartum Doula

Following the births of her two daughters in 2008 and 2011, Natasha discovered there was a huge gap in maternity care—support and education for the new family during the postpartum period (fourth trimester). Expectant parents and their healthcare providers place huge emphasis on preparing for labor and delivery, and virtually none on preparing for the journey of parenthood. Through her own experiences and by observing the struggles of other families, Natasha felt compelled to make a career change in 2012 to help close the gap.
