    Jessica is calm, thoughtful, and incredibly responsive to individual family needs. While working together providing parenting support and education through a pediatric healthcare organization, I witnessed Jessica’s trauma informed approach as she brings awareness and curiosity to every interaction. As a colleague, she is collaborative and adaptable while keeping the needs of parents and families her first priority. I have witnessed her blend education, support, empowerment, and advocacy to work with parents in a way that leaves them feeling seen, equipped, and more confident.

I'm a mom of 3 whose passion began from her own pregnancies and births. I recognized the lack of genuine support, and became obsessed with all things birth. I followed my calling to be a doula, and am honored to offer holistic, trauma informed support to women. My doula support package includes unlimited prenatal visits, on call birth support, and a postpartum visit. I provide assistance in putting together a birth plan (template provided). Many different handouts, resources, and referrals are made available to all my clients. I am also a home herbalist and enjoy making herbal products for my clients and the community. I offer Blessingway ceremonies as an add-on or stand alone offering. I look forward to chatting with you to see if we're a good fit for your birth!

Care philosophy

I trust in birth as a normal physiological process. Together we explore how this process works, and prepare body, mind and spirit for the transformation of birth (and postpartum). My induvidualized support encourages you to nurture your intuition, and establish your goals and values as your guide for a birth that you can look back on with joy. It is an honor to serve women in this sacred space!

I began my journey in 2015 as a birth doula. I work within my own practice before joining a doula cooperative. Through that experience, I met a variety of other doulas and honed my special skills to support families. I expanded into providing postpartum, VBAC, and lactation support. I am also currently working on becoming a childbirth educator.

Care philosophy

I believe in providing education and supporting your family in finding the options that fit best for you. I use my experience and education to reduce any fears around pregnancy and birth

My journey to birthwork began before I was born, with my mother choosing an unmedicated birth. When I became pregnant, I was confident I could do the same. I am so grateful for the support I had from my family during birth and postpartum. It didn’t take me long to realize that not everyone is so fortunate. My son’s birth catapulted me past the point of casual interest in birthwork into full-blown passion. I view being a doula less as a business opportunity and more as a community service. Not so long ago, birthing people were attended by their family and maybe a wise woman. I dream of the day that the doula “business” becomes obsolete and once again becomes a natural function provided by family and friends. Outside of birthwork, you can find me out in nature, devouring a book, or cooking.

Care philosophy

I believe birth is designed to work and how you birth will shape the rest of your life. I want you to feel fully supported during this experience and that you feel like you’re the one in charge. I also value honesty. If your birth vision isn’t aligned with the provider or birthplace you’ve chosen, I’ll say so. I provide evidence-based research but also encourage you to consult your intuition.

    Natasha is compassionate doula who really makes you feel heard. She is a wealth of knowledge, deeply understanding the physiology and psychology of birth. She will help you incorporate both evidence based research and ancient wisdom as you consider options for your pregnancy and birth. She is passionate about supporting women both one-on-one and in the community. I would recommend her to someone having a hospital birth, home birth, or anything in between.

Doulas are companions who strive to give families a safe, positive, and healthy labor experience.

Doulas also take an active role in collaborating with the parent to create a birth plan.

A certified birth doula offers advice and techniques to help reduce the stress that the parent often experiences during childbirth and provides you with education about different aspects of delivery and labor and what comes after.

They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

Yes, a birth doula can provide support during a Cesarean birth and delivery. Doulas are non-medical professionals and do not replace obstetricians, physicians, midwives or nurses. They are an additive member to the team and provide emotional, physical and informational support to the birthing parent, partner and family. It is up to you whether the certified doula can remain in the operating room during the procedure.

When you hire a doula in Kenosha, WI, your services typically include several in-person prenatal sessions, 24/7 phone and text support, full attendance throughout your labor, and several hours of support immediately following your birth.

A doula in Kenosha, WI can help you in any kind of birth. Certified doulas are able to assist parents in creating the ideal “birth environment” and help parents deliver their baby safely. A doula can provide support during the birth whether it occurs in a hospital, a home, or another birth center of some kind. Doulas are there to support you in your desired birth preferences, whether that is a preference for natural, non-medicated, assisted, C-section or anything else.

Certified doulas can also act as a liaison between you and hospital staff regarding your childbirth expectations and preferences. For example, if your preference is to have a non-medicated birth, a doula can help guide you through that process and create a personalized birth plan. A certified doula in Kenosha, WI does not replace medical staff (such as your obstetrician and nurses).

Recent studies show that parents who have a support person like a doula by their side throughout labor and childbirth are more likely to:

  1. Give birth without the need for pain medicine
  2. Describe their birth experience in a positive way
  3. Give birth without the need for medical intervention, such as C-sections or vacuum delivery
  4. Experience a shorter labor

You can hire a doula early in your pregnancy to allow you time to get to know each other and to begin planning for your later trimesters, labor, birth, and aftercare. It is ideal to hire a doula when you are around 20 weeks along, but you can start looking for one before that.

It is never too late to hire a doula in Kenosha, WI; you have right up to your due date to find a doula near you and receive all the benefits of doula support.

While many people think that a doula and a midwife are the same thing, their educational background and job duties are different. Doulas are non-medical professionals who provide emotional, physical and educational support, while also offering actionable advice and guidance to new parents about how to nurture their baby.

A midwife is a certified nurse-midwife (CNM) or a certified midwife (CM). CNMs are medical professionals that are certified and licensed by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. CMs are also certified, but they do not have nursing backgrounds.

Doulas are not medical professionals; they focus on the emotional support for the parents and the family before, during, and after the birth of the baby. Their job is to provide information, advice, and support to the family not diagnose any medical conditions or provide medical advice.
