Please join us in welcoming our newest Community Partner, Across the Spectrum Doula in Blackwood, NJ! This month, she will be facilitating our first in-person Spanish support group on September19!
Founder of Across the Spectrum Doula LLC, Daniela Natali is a full-spectrum doula servicing South Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia area. Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Daniela has strived to make a positive impact on her community from a young age. Her purpose has been to make the world a better place one person or child at a time.
In 2014, she became a mother through the State of New Jersey’s foster care system. Through that process, she faced traumas and losses, but gained one of the best gifts of her life, her first son. Daniela also has two biological children and has learned first hand the benefits of having a doula support her through her pregnancies and births.
In addition to her living children, Daniela experienced multiple pregnancy losses of her own. During these hard times, Daniela wished she would have had the support of a full-spectrum doula. After much thought and research, she decided to change her career path and become that support for others.
Daniela believes that empowering and nurturing the parents, regardless of the circumstances, is the key to a healthy family relationship. An inclusive and open-minded approach to parenthood and grief has allowed her to provide families the comfort they need during periods of adjustment. Daniela has first hand experience and values fostering multicultural and multiracial family spectrums. She services the Latinx community and offers her services in English and Spanish.
Daniela is a BADT certified Full Spectrum Doula, a certified birth and grievance doula (SBD), a trained birth lactation consultant, and childbirth educator (CBI), DONA trained postpartum doula, and a trained sexual wellness, peer lactation couselor, childbirth educator, birth and postpartum doula (Uzazi Village). She also has extensive training through the NJ DCP&P Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education (PRIDE) program. Daniela also holds a Bachelor’s degree from Florida Tech and an MBA from University of Delaware.
