I had the pleasure of working with Heather for the labor of my first baby. Heather had such a positive impact on my birth experience that I can't imagine what it would have been like without her. She is extremely knowledgable, kind, caring and respectful of you and your wishes. If you are looking for a Doula that will support you through one of the most difficult experiences of your life with a calm, kind, supportive demeanor; Heather is who you are looking for! I cannot recommend her enough!

As first time parents we reached out to Heather when our little girl was a week old. At the time I had a lot PP anxiety and my husband was going back to work. We were looking for someone that could provide both expertise/guidance about random newborn questions (instead of Googling at 1am!) and a trusted person who could take care of our daughter so I could catch up on sleep.  

What we got was SO much more! Not only is Heather extremely knowledgeble, certified/dedicated to her craft, and professional; she is also very nurturing, caring, and treated our daughter like her own. Heather's overall vibe is very calming and kind. After working with Heather for almost 8 weeks, my daughter and me are completely different people - for the better. My little one is sleeping amazing, taking a bottle, breastfeeding, and developing so well - all things we worked on with Heather. Through her support, I am a better mother to my little girl, because not only am I getting more sleep, but I also had Heather as an amazing resource to ask all my random new parent questions (instead of going down the black hole which is the internet). 

If we could have Heather with us forever would! We can't recommend her enough.
