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

Heather was a huge source of knowledge, guidance, reassurance, and support throughout my pregnancy and labor & delivery. She is one of the most experienced and well educated women on pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care in the Chicagoland area, which is why I chose to have her as my right-hand lady for the amazing but overwhelming process of having a baby!


As nature would have it, nothing went to plan during L & D for me, but Heather made sure that I was in control of all the decisions made, and kept me upbeat and positive throughout. She never tired in keeping me relaxed and as comfortable as possible during the 12+ hours of active labor, and was extremely helpful to my husband, giving him ideas on what to do and allowing him to rest when he needed.  It came down to big decisions that I never thought I would have to make; first an epidural and then a C-section. Heather was there with honest advice, and I knew that she seriously took into account my wish for a natural birth but had the experience and grace to help me move away from the plan and do what felt right for both my body and baby. I can't imagine making those choices without her by my side, and her reassurance helped me afterwards in coming to terms with how my birth story unfolded.  She was my number 1 advocate for the best possible choices and outcome at the hospital, and wasn't afraid to speak on my behalf to the nurses and midwives when I was no longer able to talk!


When it comes to having a baby, not much can be predicted, planned, or controlled, which is why I strongly recommend having someone with a tremendous amount of hands on experience to draw from. In the heat of it all, you want a woman beside you who has seen it every way a hundred times, and those kinds of doulas are hard to come by! I would recommend Heather as a doula and Hypnobabies teacher to everyone I know having a baby!
