Heather is one of a kind.Loving, determined & plain out talented. A person who is beautiful inside & out. I contacted Heather in July after I saw one of her ads on social media for doula services & maternity photography. This was my first baby so I knew I wanted to get pictures done, especially after seeing some of her work. We finally met up & instantly clicked. Once I got the pictures back, I immediately fell in love. She captured so many precious moments of my partner & I. After talking to my partner, we both agreed we wanted her to be apart of my birth story & become my doula too. One of the best choices I ever made. Ever since that moment, she was so helpful to me. Constantly checking in on me, updating me on information I had no clue about, giving me some of the best advice to help me with my pregnancy & overall filled me with so much knowledge.She knew I wanted a natural birth from the beginning, & she did everything in her power to make sure that was going to come true for me. Jumping forward to the day I went into labor...Heather was my motivator. As soon as my contractions were 4-5 minutes apart, she met me at the hospital. She supported me through every contraction & every ounce of pain. There were a couple times I wanted to give up. I told myself I was done. I couldn’t handle the pain anymore. Heather & my partner didn’t let me lose my faith in a natural birth. She pushed me & encouraged me by telling me “he‘s almost here”. “You can do this”. She never gave up on me, & that alone is why I never gave up on a natural birth for my son. 7 hours later, my baby boy was here. Natural free. I know for a fact I had a natural birth because of her unfailing support & love through everything. She never gave up on me & allowed me to have the strength to have an amazing birth story that I’ll never forget. Heather will always hold a special place in my heart.
