Creator & Founder, Better Postpartum
Natalie Telyatnikov is a mother of 2, living in Connecticut. She is the creator and founder of Better Postpartum.
Natalie’s calling to create better postpartum education for all mothers, came from her own personal experience, merged with her professional background in childbirth education and journalism. After personally experiencing the dramatic downfall in education and care that mothers face after giving birth (when she had her first son in 2013), she suffered chronic health complications, as a result of inadequate knowledge about how to best support her health, and recover after giving birth.
Like many new mothers, Natalie forged ahead into early motherhood feeling very well prepared for the nuances of labor and delivery, but sadly underprepared in terms of knowing anything about what optimal care for oneself in the immediate aftermath of giving birth should entail.
A maternal health advocate and educator, certified in Innate Postpartum Care traditions and trained in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder support, Natalie has worked with new and expectant parents, teaching Baby Care Basics workshops and co-leading live Life After Birth postpartum support groups at the HypnoBirthing of CT childbirth education studio in Westport, CT since 2014.
In addition to also doing private phone consultations and healing home visits for postpartum mothers, Natalie strives to change the way society at large treats mothers everywhere–which all starts with educating mothers, providers, and families, to understand what mothers and babies truly need in order to thrive.
