Testimonial for Heather Keeney

We had a truly incredible experience with Heather as our doula. She provided wonderful support, encouragement, and guidance, and gave us emotional, physical, and experience-related tools to have the best experience.

She talked us through the ways things might go from early labor --> hospital --> transition, --> birth, and what we might expect from hospital staff. She helped us be prepared to be assertive with our birth plan, to think about how to have constructive conversations with staff. She showed my husband massages and counter-pressure techniques he could use to help me with my laboring discomfort, and had me try different positions that I could use in labor.

I went in to labor at 38 weeks and Heather was great support on the phone, helping determine what was really going on. She kept in touch all day until it was clear that I was in "real" labor. She'd done such a good job of teaching me ways of coping, that by the time she was en route I was ready for the hospital. She helped us remain calm as we checked in, and provided incredible guidance and support while I labored. She helped my husband support me physically and emotionally, and she helped us understand what the staff were asking/telling/etc. When it got really hard, she and my husband were like cheerleaders - they never let me doubt that I could do it.

After our son was born, Heather stayed to be sure we were ok and getting everything we needed - she got us up to our room and then let us have family time. She checked in the next day, and came back to help me with some nursing struggles a few days later. She also helped me go back over the whole experience so I could remember everything that had happened - really process it so it wasn't just a blur.

It was a privilege to have Heather as our doula - she made an incredible exerience even more so by helping me own it - i always felt that I was in control, really empowered. I could not ask for more!
