 Warm, Caring, Professional Support

Natalie Borden CD(DONA), CBC(CBI), CLE

I have always had a passion for caring for others. Originally from Saskatchewan, my husband and I moved to Calgary in 2006. After the birth of my daughter, my eyes were opened to the wonder that is motherhood. Two more daughters followed her, and our household was complete. It was shortly after the birth of our youngest that a close friend asked me to be at her side during her upcoming birth. I was thrilled and very excited. It was a moment that is etched in my mind and on my heart forever. Over the years I have been invited into the homes of many to help them transition into parenthood and to expand their families. I have been able to utilize my vast personal experience and education to help others during an intimate and emotional time. I felt honoured that the people in my life could lean on me to help them through this time in their lives. It is my belief that birth and breastfeeding are natural processes that are better experienced with additional support.

To me birth is a life changing moment. As a Certified Birth Doula, Breastfeeding Counselor and Certified Lactation Educator, I am able to provide you with warm, compassionate, professional care. Many of the support and services I provide can be reimbursed through your health plans. I offer evidence-based information to the families I work with in the Calgary area while providing physical, emotional and educational support.
