Heather Breanne

Hali was the best Doula! She tought me about baby care basics and breastfeeding (since shes a lactaion consultant!) She was always supportive and very helpful. I talked to her often about any concerns I had and she was always attentive and answered my questions. During labor, she was extremely comforting and respected my wishes. She was excellent at guiding me through relief techniques and held my hand the whole time I was giving birth! I had a very positive experience with her and a very safe and AMAZING natural birth. I reccomend her highly!

Hali was wonderful. She met with me early in my pregnancy and helped e through some of the troubles I had in my pregancy , incuding gestational diabletes. She gave me much information on this as well as contacts for some alternative medicine. It was so helpful since I was devestated by this news. She kept on top of me when I had my doctors appointents and also helped me come up with my birth plan. I was told I needed to be induced, so Hali was flexible and helped me through my choices. I ended up having to be induced for 2 whole days. Hali came for both days and helped me work through my contractions and the decisions I had to make while iwas in the hospital, explaining things better then the doctors did sometimes. She had her bag of tricks with so much stuff to help me through my intense contractions. She even stayed around when things went differently then planned and we had to do a c-section. She worked with me after the baby was born too, coming one day in the hospital when I needed help with breast feeding. She even stayed in touch with me after I went home from the hospital. Checking in on me and the baby. She helped me get through some breastfeeding troubles. I can't say how much it meant to me to have Hali there for me before, during and after the birth of my beautiful baby grl. She is so calming, knowledgeable and prepared. She would be an asset for anyone to use for their bith. I highly reccomend Hali!!!

Hali was everything I could have wanted in a doula. She helped me with a stressful end of pregnancy. She was amazing during birth and delivery. She helped me advocate successfuly for myself, she also ensured that my partner recieved her wristband from the hospital staff. 

She checked in on us and ensured that we were doing well after the birth.
