It is difficult to put into words just how special Natalya is – as a person and as a doula!
Natalya started with us and our twin boys on our second night home from the hospital and stayed with us right through until they were 5 months old. Natalya is an extremely warm and kind person and has such a special way with babies and has a particularly skilled way of working with twins. From the moment we met her, she instilled confidence in us that our boys would be in very capable and attentive hands overnight so that we could rest well. She always listened attentively to our boys’ cues and came to understand their patterns intimately, helping to educate us as well. As a new mom, I learned so much from Natalya and would look forward to our nightly conversations and little teaching sessions on various baby topics such as how to bathe a newborn, baby wearing, how to dress baby appropriately for weather, and so many other topics. If you have the chance to work with Natalya, and certainly if you have twins, consider yourself very fortunate. She will always hold a very special place in our hearts and we will miss her dearly.
