Originally from North Eastern Indiana, Natasha moved to Nashville in 2012 after getting married. She has a background in sales and business management.
Natasha’s doula adventure began after a somewhat traumatic birth experience five years ago when her oldest was born. She began to research ‘support during labor and delivery’ and stumbled across the DONA International website. After pouring over articles and books about women receiving doula support during labor and postpartum, she knew this was her life’s work.
Natasha is a passionate advocate for birth and postpartum care and education. Her love and knowledge for women and their families during this delicate time shines through her interactions with others. She loves providing families with the most updated childbirth education, helping to create a restful birthing and postpartum space, and providing information and tools so parents can feel as prepared and peaceful as possible.
In addition to birth and postpartum doula certification, Natasha is working toward becoming a certified child birth educator and a lactation educator. She hopes to continue to add to her tool belt in order to provide families with as many resources as possible during their birth and postpartum journey.
Natasha lives in south Nashville with her three lovely children Eloise, Linus and Felix and her husband Jon. When she’s not helping families or momming, she loves to cuddle up with a cup of coffee and listen to audio books, walk around books stores, have a back yard picnic with the kiddos or try out a new restaurant with her spouse.
