Natalie Portman, Doula

My hope as a doula is to be a reliable resource to you by educating, referring, and supporting you in this special season of pregnancy and birth. I will support your vision for your labor and delivery. I will be your biggest advocate in what can be a very vulnerable time. My role is to address your emotional and physical needs, while your medical caregiver is responsible for your health and the health of your baby.

A little about me...

I’m a proud wife and mama, and I’m starting my journey as a birth doula in the Jacksonville, Florida area! Through the encouragement of wonderful friends and family I’ve decided to enter into birth doula work after my own positive and empowering birth experience.

While pregnant I found there was often too little or too much information, or worse, conflicting information relating to various aspects of pregnancy and birth. I started researching and reading up on everything I could, and it opened my eyes to the value of a reliable source of information.

Research shows that women who have a birth doula are less likely to have unwanted interventions and outcomes. It has also been shown that a birth doula contributes to an overall more positive birth experience.

I believe God fearfully and wonderfully made women’s bodies to give way to new life. Every single birth, no matter how it happens, is a miracle. It is an honor to be in consideration for your birth team. My heart is to lovingly serve families in this special season of pregnancy and birth, and to support families as they transition to life with a newborn.

"Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves." -Romans 12:10
