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

I found Heather through a Facebook group of local moms - many recommended her! We interviewed three and by far felt most comfortable with Heather. I was impressed with her background as a midwife, and she is also so personable. As a second-time mom, I knew what to expect going into the birth. My first labor was very ?late and very ?long??, and I went to the hospital way too early, so the benefit of having a woman at home who could even check me was great!? I had wanted an unmedicated birth? with my first? but ended up getting an epidural and pushing for 3 1/2 hours! I really hoped this time would be different. Heather told me many stories about the women she worked with and mentioned that none of her second time moms went longer than 6 hours - I kid that I hired her based on that? alone! (And it was only 5 1/2 hours this time for me!)

My water broke at 4 am on the day I gave birth, but it wasn't immediately apparent that that's what had happened, so I went back to bed. When I woke in the morning, I texted Heather, and she kept in close contact all morning to make sure all was going well. She came to our house around 1 pm, when my contractions were really getting strong. She was amazing - somehow she knew exactly when my contractions were about to peak and reassured me ?as she talked me down each one. We talked about when we should leave for the hospital - I didn't want to go too early! We left my house around 2:30, arrived around 2:40, got in a room at triage at 2:50 - and my son was born at 3:01! No time for an epidural, no time for monitors or an IV - my dream! Even though Heather didn't end up being with me for much of labor, I truly believe our prenatal meetings with her gave me the confidence to know I could work through my labor this time.

The birth of my second child was by far the most empowering moment of my life, and I'm so thrilled that Heather helped me be calm, present, and strong through it!
