Smiling Pregnant Woman

“Just as a woman’s heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth.”

-Virginia Di Orio

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Shanille accommodated my needs very well and supported me through my post partum period. She has a special touch with babies and could calm my baby down instantly. Having a doula when my family was far away due to the pandemic definitely enabled us, first time parents. Her tips on breast feeding were very helpful and so was her help with getting our baby to accept a bottle (Saved us from so much pain). My husband and I had a very positive experience and will recommend Shanille !!

If you need a doula, look no further than Naturally Nurtured! I have had the best experience with my doula, Abeni. She was with me prior to my birthing experience, during my birthing experience, and is also my postpartum doula. She is the best! I have been so supported by her every step of the way! This was my very first birth and I would not have been able to birth my daughter naturally with her and my midwives during my very lengthy laboring process without her. She was and is truly amazing!!!

I could not be happier with my choice to hire Rhonda as my doula! I knew from the moment we had our first call that she loved her family and loved supporting other women in their pregnancy journey! She was so calm, welcoming, yet empowering and she was everything I needed and more! Rhonda knew exactly how to read the room the day of delivery and with strength and gentleness navigated the day with me. I love how she coached not only me, but my husband as well and created such a beautiful birthing experience that we will cherish forever. I’m so thankful for her knowledge, her passion, and her talent for natural birth, and I KNOW I couldn’t have had nor ever want to have, a natural birth story without her! If you are on the fence of hiring a doula, do it, and I absolutely recommend Rhonda!
*note: she helped me with my third pregnancy, but I wish she would have been a part of all three!

Amazing, would 100% recommend and 100% use again. The placenta pills are amazing and I don’t think my postpartum experience would’ve been smooth like it was without them. Mrs. Shanille was very professional, informative and supportive. She helped me with breastfeeding and pumping tips as well. She check on me and was always available when I had questions. Over great experience, Top tier…

What We Don't Provide

We are not midwives. We do not perform clinical tasks, such as fetal heart checks, vaginal exams, etc. We are here to provide physical, educational and emotional support. We do not deliver babies, although we are more than happy to provide referrals to clients who seek the care of a midwife. Because comfort is a big part of our job, Doulas are there to cater to your spirit, heart, mind, and soul (sometimes your back, neck and shoulders too).

Hospitals and Birth Centers Served

Baptist Memorial Hospital for Women, Methodist Germantown, St. Francis Hospital-Memphis, St. Francis-Bartlett, Regional One Medical Center, Baptist Memorial Hospital-Desoto, Methodist Olive Branch Hospital and CHOICES Birth Center.
