Testimonial for Heidy Ramirez

My wife Kate and I selected Heidy as our doula upon recommendation from our instructor from one of our birth classes (Lisa Taylor, BIRTH MATTERS) --- and let us just say, we're very grateful that we received this recommendation.

To put it in simplest terms: Heidy was terrific.  Warm, kind, compassionate and yet also forthright when it mattered the most (i.e. during labor and pushing).  We met with Heidy multiple times before the birth as to get acquainted, discuss our birth plan, and cover multiple other logistical and practical tips ("when do we call you before going to the hospital?" and "how do you properly use a Boba wrap??" among many other things).  She was a terrific listener and showed great care for any and all questions we had, and we felt very comfortable with her right from the get-go.

The birth was a wild night, yet Heidy was with us every step of the way: whether on the phone while on her way to the hospital, or right there in the room with us during the pushing phase -- offering my wife massage, something to drink, encouraging words, and more. She was a calming presence when things were chaotic, and a stern advocate for my wife's birth plan when medical personel were present in our room. (Side note: and she did all this with us between the hours of approximately 9pm and 4am...attentive and focused...in spite of the late hour AND most amazingly, the fact that she, Heidy, had fractured some small bones in her own foot only hours before meeting us at the hospital)

The birth was an incredible experience and Heidy helped us to navigate a stressful, emotional, and overall wonderful night.  She also came to our apartment a few days later to check in and to assist with some lactation consulting (so helpful!!).  She would text us or email throughout all the weeks we were a "team" and we never ceased to feel connected to her and so, so very happy that she will forever be a part of our baby's birth story.
