Testimonial for Heather McCullough CPM, Hypno, CAPPA Faculty CLE, CLD, CPD

I had just two meetings with Heather before my daughter was born (two weeks early), but her advice and support before, during, and after the birth was incredible. Heather has a calming, peaceful, knowledgeable way about her. My partner initially had no strong opinion about involving a doula in our birth experience, but if you ask him now, he will tell you how amazing Heather is and how worthwhile it is to have a doula on your side. Amazingly, when my water broke and the rushes began and were accompanied by bleeding, I called L&D at the hospital (UIC) and the on-call doctor told me only to come in if it was worrisome but gave me no indication about what I should I do or if I should in fact be worried. I had no frame of reference. I texted Heather at 3am and she immediately wrote back and then called me. Once active labor began, she stayed in communication with my partner, giving him resources and a peace of mind. Although Heather did not get to attend my labor/delivery, she immediately sent her backup doula to my house while I labored at home; her backup doula was phenomenal. I wish Heather could have been there for the birth, too, but I am so, so thankful that she was part of the whole experience, both pre- and post-partum. She is a fount of knowledge and is so accessible and willing to answer questions or provide support and encouragement.
