Testimonial for Heidy Ramirez

Heidy was a dream to work with from our first introductory meeting with her at our apartment. She made herself comfortable in our home and immediately put us at ease. She brought a calm energy, openness to what we wanted from the birth experience, and a sensitivity and respect for the significance of the birth and postpartum period for the families she works with.

My husband and I wanted an unmedicated birth at a hospital, with the ability to labor at home as long as possible - one of the best things Heidy did for us was to demystify the what-ifs should things not go according to plan. I was much more comfortable and open to the possibility that we would be ok even if we had an experience that I dreaded (c-section, interventions). In the end, we were lucky to have a fast, unmedicated birth, but I feel confident that should things have gone differently I would still have come out of the experience feeling loved and supported thanks to Heidy.

During labor, Heidy was essential to both me and my husband - helping reassure us that things were proceeding as normal, sitting with me in the back seat on the cab ride to the hospital, getting us through triage, and reminding me to breathe through the experience at all the right times.

Heidy was proactive in reaching out via text and email to check in on the progress of the pregnancy, prelabor, and postpartum. She was always knowledgable and calmed many anxieties. One of the best decisions we made was to hire her back for a 3 days for postpartum support – she helped us with practical housekeeping as well as baby care education and breastfeeding. It was invaluable to have her support while my husband transitioned back to work.

I recommend Heidy wholeheartedly – mothers and couples who have the opportunity to welcome her into their homes and families are lucky ones!
