Testimonial for Heather Keeney

A family friend suggested when I was pregnant looking into getting a doula. I said sure, but in my mind I was thinking how could I let a complete stranger into my life at the most private and intamate point. I was hesitant but I went onto Doulamatch and looked up doula's around me. I saw Heather's portfolio and read her testimonies. She had such great reviews, I thought, ok I will message her and see where it goes from there. We set up a meeting and from the moment i met her our personalities clicked and it felt like she had been a close friend for years. I was hooked and knew I wanted her to be at my birth of my daughter. Through out my pregnancy we kept in touch with any questions I had and she gave me info and tips on how to make my pregnancy more comfortable. She went over what might happen when I go into labor and what the hospital experience might be like. As labor started she was right by my side either in person or on the phone. She sent me links to help me get more comfortable because my daughter was back to back. Knowing that she was just a phone call away helped keep me calm. The first time I went to the hospital I was sent home for not progressing after been given 15 minutes on pitocin. I was devastated thinking that finally being put on pitocin I would be leaving the Hospital with my beautiful daughter but unfortunately that was not the case. Heather was there at the Hospital with me holding my hands telling me it would be ok and not to get my hopes down. As i spent the next few days at home with heavey contractions, Heather was constantly keeping in touch with me. Finally I went to the hospital and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. The stress of being in labor for 56 hours and 46 of those hours was natural was tolling on me, but having Heather right next to me through the entire labor was the best feeling that I can describe besides holding my newborn daughter. I now concider Heather a close friend and no doubt will have her at my next birth.
