"My husband and I are both extremely thankful that we hired Natalia Hals as our doula. We look back at the interview process and the prenatal meetings as a worthy investment of time and money. Natalia perfectly suited our personalities and my need for a coach. During labor, she encouraged me and diffused my frustration when my labor kept staring/stopping. She guided me in decision-making at every stage and encouraged us that everything was "normal". After the labor, I needed lots of stitching, but my husband was busy attending to our daughter. Instead, Natalia held my hand and gave me quiet strength through the repair process. I am so thankful for her presence- physically and emotionally. A week after the birth, Natalia stopped by and served as a sounding board for any remaining concerns. She also gifted us with a written narrative of the birth for us to richly remember how our daughter wondrously came into this world."
"Natalia knew what was needed and when. A bath, a sip of water, an encouraging word- or a bathroom break! And when she was simply in the background watching and waiting for those needs, her presence was a source of peace. I will be forever grateful for her knowledge and kindness."
~Chris and Yvette M.
"Natalia was a wonderful support to us as a doula. She was generous with her time. During the two prenatal visits, she took time to hear our story and our desires for this birth. She had great resources on labor positions, nutrition and more. She interacted beautifully with our two year old during our meetings, seeing us as a family unit, not just as a task to check off her list. Her personality is very calm, gentle, and exudes peace..."
"One of the biggest things I appreciated about Natalia was her sensitivity. It was as if she saw how I was flowing and jumped in at the exact same speed; with the greatest care and tenderness. When I was chatty, she laughed and joked with me (oh, her sense of humor is amazing – how much that helps!!!: ) ..."
"I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Natalia at our birth, and believe that she played a crucial role in the successful outcome!" ~Amy and Jordan I.
"I wanted to say THANK YOU! Your support and encouragement during my daughters recent labor and delivery was incredible and MORE than we could have asked for or imagined."
I have 4 children. With my first 3, I never had a doula and didn't think I needed one. WAS I WRONG!! Talia was AMAZING!!! She made my LAST BIRTHING EXPERIENCE, my BEST BIRTHING EXPERIENCE!
