JOHANNESBURG BIRTH DOULA & PHOTOGRAPHER
HELLO AND WELCOME!
Hello! I am Natalie. A professional Doula and Photographer in Johannesburg, Gauteng.
Doula work is definitely at the heart of me. There is no greater fulfillment than assisting a Mom through labour and birth. There is so much fear surrounding birth, be it natural or csection, and there really need not be! Women are powerful! I aim to show you your absolute strength and power during birth through guided support and discreet, tasteful imagery. I adopt a photo-journalist approach, documenting every possible detail of your baby's birth day.
My soul is introverted, quiet, and gentle. I am fiercely stubborn, with a quick-witted sense of humour. I cannot spell to save my life! There is just no time to smell the roses either! 😉 I am a Mom of two gorgeous girls who keep me incredibly busy, and drive me crazy! My life is forever changed because of them.
I also document life's journeys, from Maternity, Birth and Newborns to wonderful growing Families! Join me on this wonderful journey!
“My only regret when it comes to Natalie is not having found her sooner. Natalie has been present at my last 2 births and I honestly don’t know how she is there, captures every moment and yet I never feel like she is being intrusive in any away. It’s like she blends into your birth bubble and becomes an essential part of your team. I have given birth 8 times and trust me when I say you want your birth documented – and I believe that it takes a special and talented person to be able to document it as beautifully as Natalie does. I watch my videos over and over, and relive those days countless times. If I give birth again, she will be there no doubt! She is forever a piece of some of the most important days in my life and I am so thankful to her for giving me some of my most treasured images!” – Xuxa, 2020
