Testimonial for Heidy Ramirez

Heidy Ramirez has been an incredible blessing to our little family as a birth doula, lactation consultant, and postpartum doula.

Heidy is not only passionate about her work with mothers, fathers, and babies, but she exhibits great skill through her extensive hands on experience. She is always quick to back up her professional suggestions with studied research. Heidy is also very understanding and sensitive to her clients, and both my husband and I find it very easy to open up to her and be vulnerable, which is a desired characteristic for support during such life changing events as birth, breastfeeding, and new parenthood.

We first hired her as a birth doula, and we loved the two preparatory sessions. We went over pain management techniques for labor, and mapped out how we might use our apartment to our advantage. She also talked us through mental preparation in case the birth did not go according to plan. In the second session, Heidy showed me breastfeeding techniques, and also showed us how to use the various baby carriers we had collected.

In the weeks after the birth, my son and I were having trouble getting a proper latch when breastfeeding, which was causing me significant pain. As a lactation consultant, she was able to help us get an excellent latch, and we finally had a comfortable breastfeeding experience. Breastfeeding turned out to be an emotional process for me, and she was incredibly supportive as I figured out what was best for me and my baby.

Finally, when my husband was out of town for a week, Heidy helped me as a postpartum doula for several days. I could not imagining going through that time without her support. She helped with breastfeeding, and she showed me many great techniques for diapering, bathing, soothing my baby. As a new mother without a lot of experience with babies, I found her postpartum support invaluable! On top of everything, my son, Mason, absolutely loves Heidy.
