Testimonial for Heidy Ramirez

Heidy was by my side for the birth of my first baby and for several postpartum visits. I had a fast and uncomplicated labor and delivery, yet I wouldn't want to do it again without her.

I'll try not to repeat too much of what others have already said, and instead list some specific ways that Heidy came through for us:

* Heidy proactively met us at the hospital for labor. We had been in touch over text, but labor progressed more quickly than I expected and I was in disbelief that it was really time. Thankfully, Heidy invited herself over and was there to support me through triage.

* She gently stood up for me when I was barely able to speak. When one of the nurses unhelpfully said I shouldn't push yet, because it was too early, Heidy softly but firmly replied that it was involuntary. It made no practical difference, but it meant a lot that someone in the room understood that I couldn't help it.

* Heidy took simple steps to help me avoid unnecessary interventions. My baby kept moving away from the monitor, leading the hospital staff to suggest internal monitoring. I hoped to avoid it, so without being asked, Heidy stood by my bedside and held the monitor in place so that we wouldn't be bothered about it again.

* Heidy helped me overcome fear and self-doubt. I had a close to perfect labor and delivery, but was still very shaken by the experience. I felt safe, reassured, and empowered every time we spoke though.

* Heidy was wonderful with our baby girl. She helped us understand her fussiness and gave us much needed breaks during her postpartum visits. She taught us how to wear her in a wrap, and although it took us a while to get the hang of it, our girl loved being worn by Heidy and could sleep for hours that way.

As someone who waited until quite late in pregnancy to find a doula, because I wasn't even sure I needed or wanted one, I'm very fortunate to have found Heidy and that she was available.
