Because the birth of a child is a truly beautiful and wondrous experience!
With over 20 years of international midwifery experience in South Africa and Switzerland, 7 of those in private practice, and having delivered many, many babies, Natasha has been offering a safe and loving environment in which women can give birth.
ServicesThe midwifery model of care offers mothers the benefits of one-on-one care for pregnancy, birth and post-partum.
... with summer back in the Cape I am constantly thinking back on last summer when this 10kg baby of mine was still in my belly... How I loved being pregnant!
I was always looking forward to my appointments with Natasha, not only because I could hear my baby's heartbeat again
but also because she would make you feel even more excited (and also reassured, more confident etc etc) about the pregnancy and the whole birthing experience...
Still today I am so thankful I found her (just googeled 'midwife somerset west' and there she was!) as we would never have wanted to be our 'BirthDay' to be different!
It was a hectic couple of days... starting on a sunday morning and ending on the tuesday morning...
The baby was eventually born in hospital but most of the labour was at home, so for me it was a home birth..
I will never forget the feeling of that nice, soft hand on my lower back...you could immediately feel the experience... "Thank God! This lady knows what she is doing!" (because I didn't!!!)
That's is why I didn't argue at all when Tash suggested to go for an epidural at the hospital after all those hours and still no progress... It was a good decision which we don't regret at all..
and even though we were at the hospital, it was a complete different setting because me and my husband were in charge supported by Natasha our midwife, not the medical staff making decisions for us and not even listening to what we actually want...
The whole experience was so beautiful that I am looking forward to do it all over again and again and again... and hopefully with Natasha by our side! Aimy Nelis & Ylaai
I am here! Thank you for praying for me. Mommy and I had a beautiful natural birth and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa at 3:40pm on June 10 and am a tiny gem of 5.1 oz. Thank you for praying” -Love Rio whom is ‘God’s River of Strength’
Hi Friends, its official I am forever changed and my heart has been stolen yet again.
There was worship music played where Rio was birthed and a Christian midwife where we birthed at her home.Natasha Stadler held my hand and was like a mother to me in a country where my family cannot be present.
I bawled and worshiped Christ when our son was placed on my stomach, it was the purest form of experiencing the Lord. Your prayers carried me and I sincerely say thanks to all of you! To see more pictures, click the Baby Spotlighttab.
Our son’s full name is Rio Milani Jackson. After much prayer, we wanted to give our son a name that has spiritual significance as when names were given in the Bible. Rio is Spanish for “God’s River of Strength.” Milani is South African from the IsiXhosa people which means “Rooted in Christ.” When Jerrah and I reflect over our lives when I was pregnant with Rio, we recall staying rooted in Christ when the Lord uprooted us from the USA to plant our roots in South Africa for ministry. Despite the journey and challenges we remained rooted in Christ and our hope is that our son will be rooted in Him as well.
May God bless you, and thank you again for your well wishes and prayers.
