Testimonials for the Better Postpartum program:

“I looked forward to watching the daily videos on my pump break at work! The information was so valuable! I just wish I had known about this sooner!” ~Anna, Mother of Jack

“I was stressing out because I didn’t have the time to read all the parenting books I wanted to read, so having these quick videos to watch dally was exactly what I needed to get up to speed. It was super convenient and way more enjoyable.” ~Julie, Mother of Oliver, CA

“I loved taking Better Postpartum while I was pregnant, in my second and third trimester. It made me feel so calm and prepared. But the lifetime access to the course was the best part! I rewatched certain sections once baby was here–whenever I needed a refresher! Like the breastfeeding and sleep sections! It was a lifesaver. A total game-changer, when I needed this info the most!” ~Melinda, Mother of Abigail

“Better Postpartum helped me so much during a time when I felt alone and at wits end with my health both physically and mentally. The program is very thorough and in depth, you can tell a lot of love and time was put into it. The nutrition tips really helped the times that I couldn’t keep much food down. Most of all the unending support from Natalie the founder was irreplaceable. Knowing that there is someone there who will never judge and who completely understands is just incredible. In our modern detached society, we forget how important the support of your fellow women is and this is a huge step in the right direction!” ~Nancy, Mother of Cooper

“I so appreciate it Natalie!! I had stopped taking my magnesium after I delivered but started taking it again along with your suggestions, and honestly I can say I feel sooooo much better. I haven’t had any hopeless feelings or tears in 3 days which is huge for me. I also had the opportunity to really work through some of the birth trauma I experienced, I had an unexpected 3rd degree episiotomy which was and still is really effecting my self-view. Overall I feel more balanced and capable of taking this day by day. Of course I know recovery is a process but I truly feel it’s on an upward trend! Thank you so much for opening your heart to me, and Im enjoying learning about your program which is amazing!” ~Rachel, CA, Mother of Leo

“Thank you so much for everything – I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t reached out to Natalie about joining Better Postpartum that day!” ~Beth, CT, Mother of Bowdie

 

 

Testimonials for the creator of Better Postpartum

As a nursing mother who struggled and pumped exclusively for the first 9 weeks of my daughter’s life, I truly appreciate how normal Natalie made me feel in those early difficult weeks. She reassured me I wasn’t failing and that I was doing my best for my baby. I will always remember her kindness.

~ Della Sousa Pereira

 

Natalie brings a much needed gentleness and spiritual wisdom to her work with new mothers, and she has an ability to create community and healing wherever she goes. She is highly effective not only because of her excellent training, but because she intimately understands the unique challenges of self care as a mother. Natalie is gifted with an innate warmth and compassion for mothers, which she offers generously to those around her. I will be continuing to follow her work as I grow in my own wisdom and love for myself as a mother.

~Rebecca Straayer Engleman

 

The attention that Natalie gave me when we met for the first time felt like a warm blanket of compassion and care. Having Natalie’s support and insight played an essential role in my being able to finally bid farewell to PPD. I also believe that if I had met her sooner—as my husband and I were preparing to become parents—it would have quite possibly spared us the experience of PPD altogether, or at the very least would have given us the right tools to deal with it and diminish its grip.

Natalie is an extraordinary human being in every sense of the word. She is insightful beyond measure, and out of the ordinary in how deeply she cares, feels, listens and understands. If you are in the lucky position to have Natalie as your Postpartum Support Specialist, know that you are in amazing hands.
