Meet The Founder & Creator of Earthbound Integrative Therapeutics
Natasha first began her journey as a nurse and the passion to be a midwife was something that she wanted to finish eventually down the road. She had to put her career on the back burner as most military wives do, but felt like becoming a doula was just one more thing to help her prepare for women’s health and wellness. She is a mother of 3 children and has gone through many trials and tribulations as a military spouse. She is very connected in knowing exactly what sacrificing means, missing old friends, family, feeling isolated/alone, and disconnected.
She knew that becoming a doula could be beneficial to her community and for the last decade she has taken pride in doing just that! In Spring of 2016 she decided to open Earthbound, a one stop shop baby planning service geared toward mom & babies. Natasha knows and can relate on what military families face, how deployments feel and look like and the struggles of single motherhood. In 2010, she committed herself into being a doula and strong serving leader within her community. In her studies and experience she has learned through the years to be very business minded and knowledgeable.
In 2011, she decided to temporarily retire her nursing career, decided to take some time off and go back to school. In May of 2012, she completed her doula training with Ann Tumblin from DONA International. In 2013, she helped create "The Mother Worth Network" and hosted a 45 hour CLC training through "The Center of Breastfeeding".
In 2014, she was published in Fayetteville, NC "City View" magazine and the Fayetteville Observer in 2016, spreading doula awareness. In 2015, she completed her Registered Yoga Training (RYT) at Embrace Yoga Studio in Fayetteville, NC and specialized in Pre/postnatal Yoga at Asheville Yoga Center and Hot Asana University.
Natasha is committed to pave a path and reach a positive birth resource network within her military installation. In July 2017, Natasha had helped open the Fort Bragg MBRN which is a non-profit Chapter located in North Carolina called the "Military Birth Resource Network". The mission is to support healthy, safe, & satisfying pregnancies, births, & postpartum experiences for military families across the globe to one duty station to the next.
Through her season of life and professionalism, Natasha, is very passionate about utilizing the power of yoga, Ayurveda and meditation for self-healing and overall health. In 2015, she had an awakening that shifted her in working toward a doctorate in Chinese Medicine (including in-depth studies in acupuncture, herbal medicine, body work, nutrition, and qi gong for women's wellness and fertility).
Natasha is a Licensed and insured Massage Therapist and Integrative body worker. Over the years, she has attended many conferences, seminars and workshops to further her education and skills to stay up-to-date on research and trends. She has served birth clients and patients in several states (VA, FL, GA, and NC), in a large number of different hospitals with different care providers having to be flexible and adaptable to her surrounding work environment. She has served women who had non-medicated labors, as well as labors with inductions, augmentations, epidurals, cesareans and VBACs.
Natasha’s birth support slots throughout the year are limited, and she believes in providing genuine individualized direct doula care. Currently, her schedule focuses on Osteopathic approaches, a variety of Integrative body work therapies and The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® with women, men and children.
The Arvigo Maya Abdominal Therapy® treatment plans focus on pelvic/abdominal massage, hydrotherapy and herbs harvested and imported from Belize through the Arvigo Institute in facilitating fertility, reproductive and digestive health with upper and lower abdominal treatment to:
Align reproductive and abdominal organs to optimal position
Improve circulation to organs

A mother's blessing is meant to inspire and encourage the expectant mom just before she gives birth to baby.
It's very ceremonial — guests may be asked to bring two things: a poem, song, prayer, or scripture about pregnancy, birth or motherhood; and a bead to symbolize fertility, birth or motherhood.
