Birth Doula Profile - Natalie Joyner
Natalie has been fascinated with pregnancy and birth for as long as she can remember. She was the kid in class who chose pregnancy as a class project topic on more than one occasion - much to the dismay of her classmates! Her interest in pregnancy and birth was sparked again while researching for her own fertility journey. She began to realize that the mainstream view of birth was based around fear, but it didn't have to be that way. Labor and birth can be empowering. She immersed herself in research and discovered her calling as a doula.
Natalie considers empathy to be her strongest skill as a doula. She has always been very sensitive to others' feelings and she uses this unique skill to guide her clients through their birthing experience.She believes that every client deserves warm, non-judgmental support from a doula who will truly listen to them. Natalie works with her clients to realize their personal, ideal birth plan that will help them feel confident and secure. There is no one-size-fits-all birth. She loves to see the personal touches that each client brings along.
She looks forward to building your ideal birth plan with you!
