Introducing our exceptional team of birth and postpartum care doulas serving the Maryland, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia area. All team members have been screened and meet the training and certification standards for doulas and lactation consultants. Organizations such as DONA International, Lifespan Doulas, ProDoula, DTI, and the International Doula Institute set these standards.
In addition, the Doulas followed a wide range of other relevant trainings. They may have taken complementary training courses such as Spinning-Babies, Rebozo, Hypnobirthing, newborn care, or specific childbirth education. Examples of specific childbirth education include The Bradley Method and Lamaze for Childbirth Education. Several of us also have experience with vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) and tons of other experience. In the overview below you find for each of us a brief overview of the training and experience. We want to keep up with new information about pregnancy, childbirth, and taking care of newborns as it evolves. We care for our clients and prioritize healthcare and birth work in all that we do.
Birth and Postpartum Doulas, and Childbirth Educators
Our Doula agency strikes the perfect balance between size and personalization to provide you with exceptional childbirth support. We are large enough to encompass a wide range of expertise in the field of childbirth and newborn care support. Our size allows us to provide reliable backup support whenever and wherever you need it. This allows us to ensure you receive the necessary assistance. A change in your plans or the need for additional assistance, our team can adapt to your unique situation.
Yet, we are small enough to cultivate a personal approach to our clients. Our Doulas work hard to connect with you, understanding your individual birth goals and needs. We provide individualized care that respects your decisions and preferences, ensuring you feel heard and supported during childbirth.

Bodil Riisom Pedersen: We were very happy with our experience with Doula Nathalie and Associates! Our postpartum doulaAnette was wonderful. She provided great support throughout, was super knowledgeable, kind and so amazing with our daughter. She was also very flexible about when she could come and help us out. Very clear communication too. All in all a great experience! (December 2023)
Allison Reilly: I worked with Nathalie during the birth of my first child and her associate, Eliza, during the birth of my second. My experience with both Nathalie and Eliza were fantastic. Both were very respectful of my preferences and advocated for me in a calm yet persuasive way. They intuitively knew what I needed during each stage of labor and were a great resource for my husband. I cannot thank them enough (November 2023).
