Oh my sweet Heather. I highly, highly recommend Heather's classes & doula services for childbirth. Her classes were super informative and armed us with the knowledge we'd need to feel confident during the birth and like we were aware of all of the various ways it could go. The classes offered us so many coping strategies for the birth, and we used many of the techniques she taught us. Having her at the birth also gave my husband a lot of confidence as well. She arrived very quickly to the hospital and was always very fast to respond to any questions I had leading up to the big day (and after -- including troubles with breast feeding). She constantly refilled my water, made sure my needs were being met and often communicated with the nurses on my behalf so I didn't have to. With this second baby, I truly got the birth I desperately wished I could have had the first time around. If you're looking for a peaceful, beautiful birth, you should consider hiring Heather. My husband was a doula skeptic prior to our first birth, and was a bit more open this time. However, after having seen how well our second birth went, he now tells other men how important hiring one is -- he felt so good having her there, and so did I!

Having Heather as part of our birth team brought me a great sense of comfort. I had a homebirth but I felt relieved having someone by my side who would remind me to believe in myself and stand up for what I wanted should a hospital transfer have become necessary. Heather has a fun, relaxed personality and a great knowledge base to help with decision making. My husband was deployed and his homecoming date was very close to my “guess date.” Heather was the perfect fit for us because she was able to support me as I needed it but was also comfortable simply holding space so my husband and I could enjoy the birth of our second baby. She also encapsulated my placenta for me and I love my cord keepsake that she made! Heather is an amazing doula, childbirth educator, and just all around wonderful person! I would definitely work with Heather again and am so grateful she was part of our special day.

Heather was an amazing and fantastic doula for my daughter's birth. She is very experienced and tailors your child birth experience to your needs. She is very patient, attentive and helps you be in better control of your body to have a natural birth. She takes the entire family's concerns into consideration and works with your birth plan every step of the way. I am happy and pleased to have her as my doula and would recommend her to everyone. I would love to have her as my doula again for my next birth. She did an excellent job.
