Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
I support all types of birth. I like to meet you at your home, at the onset of active labor, and labor there as long as you feel comfortable. I will then follow you in my own car to the hospital. Once there, I will continue to support you with comfort measures, getting you/ your partner snacks, water, and rest, and help you and your partner navigate the many choices available to you. I stay throughout the birth, and for a couple of hours after to assist with baby's first feeding and help facilitate bonding time for the new family.
Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
I love birth center births! My services are the same as hospital births.
Attends home births? Any Home Birth
I will attend all homebirths as long as a midwife or OB/GYM is present. Homebirths are amazing! My services are the same as above, although we don't have to travel anywhere!

Heather was my incredible doula for the birth of my son in 2018.  She supported me gracefully through my challenging pregnancy.  I could not have wished for a better birth experience.  I felt completly safe and I don't think the birth would have happened so beautifully without her loving presence.  I remember her holding me and concentrating on her words as I birthed my baby.  I will forever by grateful for Heather.  She is a wonderful woman and I am lucky to call her my birth doula.

I'm a FTM and wanted to do a natural, med free delivery. We selected Heather as our Doula s she made us feel comfortable that she would support & guide us through our birth plan decisions without any judgement on her part.  Heather made herself available for questoins & support at all times.  She helped us work through our birth plan and provided us with a session on comfort measures we could use on D-day.  

Although D-day didn't go quite as planned (I was induced 3.5 weeks early and chose the epidural), Heather's advice and guidance played a valuable role in the delivery process.   She provided a post-partum session where she gave me additional resources for breastfeeding and other supports.  

I highly recommend Heather as a Doula!

Heather was so wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. She met with me a week before and we talked about my birth plan. She was with me in the hospital the whole time being so helpful and encouraging.  I am so glad she was there! She checked on me at my house a week after. She is so wonderful.

When I was in labor Heather was more than my doula, she was a gift from god. She is intelligent, calm and kind. She made me feel confident in myself when I was out of control and thought I couldn't delivery my baby naturally. Having her by my side during the pregnancy and birth was the best choice I could ever make. Heather, I'm so grateful, you're amazing person and I highly recommend you as doula.
