To whom it may concern
I am writing this letter in regards to Natasha, who was my doula with my first child from Fall 2012. I had a boy in December 2012 and I was a first time mom that had a C-section around 39 weeks. Natasha did an outstanding job teaching me and helping me take care of my litter bundle of joy she has such a great knowledge of her job, new babies and she is also excellent at relating to the babies in a way that puts them at ease when she is around. She is always looking for ways to make things better and give me lots of helpful suggestions including feeding so I could get more milk and putting my son to bed the right way so he could get the best of sleep. She has the friendliest and approachable personality. She has a lot of compassion for her job, the baby and the mother in meeting all their needs which I feel is extremely important. She is just a real pleasure to be with.
I will definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking to hire a doula to care for them.

To Whom It May Concern,
I am happy to write this recommendation letter for the Doula services provided by Natasha Barker. We hired Natasha in October 2012 for the birth of our first child in December 2012 and could not have been any happier with the amazing services that she provided.
Natasha is such a wonderful person with a presence of energy that puts you immediate at ease after the first time of meeting. Natasha conducted both pre- and post-natal consultations with us as well as making herself available in person and by phone and e-mail for any question and concerns we had along the way. Having a baby for the first time, with no family close by to help, was overwhelming. BUT Natasha made it easier and was there every time we needed help.
When the time for the birth arrived, Natasha was available and told us she was primed to meet us whenever we desired. Along with offering advice and words of encouragement as we prepared for our journey, she also provided a list of things we could do to help expedite the process and ease the transition points.
At the hospital, Natasha was professional, compassionate and ready for action. She kept my wife calm throughout; she was also a strong advocate for my wife with the nursing staff. She communicated wonderfully with both of us and was with us at each step of the birth of our son.
Natasha truly treats her clients as if they are family. We could not have been happier with her services and we highly recommend her without hesitation. She made our birth experience a wonderful one and we would hire her again without question. Natasha provides incomparable service and compassion and we are blessed to have had her as a part of our son’s birth and our lives.

NC Med Society wants to keep your midwife illegal...AND force you to birth in the Hospital !!!
Yeah Well, check this out...this week, we are once again asking you to please contact your Senator and say that edition, and very importantly, we want you to plan to come to Raleigh on Wednesday, from 10am to 12pm for Birth Revolution at the General Assembly, a flashmob/protest event hosted by Where's My Midwife. This west of NCFOM to be working together. So folks, get on the phone and once again tell those legislative assistants what you want and join WMM? in Raleigh on Wednesday!
"I feel like I'm beating a dead horse by calling my senator so many times."
We understand that it feels that way and the LA may know your voice by now. This is what being part of a grassroots organization is all about. This is what sets us apart and keeps us on the senator's radar. Keep calling.
"Do I have to talk directly to my senator?"
No, you may talk with the person who answers the phone. The legislative assistant will get messages to the legislator. LAs can very influential on where the legislator will land on an issue.
"I know my senator is for our bill, should I still call?"
Yes! Legislators that are supportive, sponsors and co-sponsors can be busy with other bills and not know where our bill is in the process. So calling them keeps them informed and working for us.
"I know my senator is opposed to our bill, should I still call?"
Yes! In the past, legislators that are not supportive have been successfully moved by NCFOM members from a no vote to a yes vote, so don't give up. If you have a specific question about a senator or representative, you can contact Legislative Committee Chair, Lisa Fawcett.
"Do I have to tell the LA all the reasons why homebirth with a CPM is important to me?"
No. You can keep your message short and sweet or go into great detail with lots of statistics and information if you like. It's up to you. The important thing is to let them know that as a constituent legalizing CPMs is VERY important to you.
Have a question about making calls? You can email us here.
