Testimonial for Heidi Blanton-Pohl, CPD & Birth Photographer

Note: This message is written by a husband that had no idea what a doula was before my wife talked about getting one... in short, I’m so happy she did.

Our son, Jay, was born on 10/3/17. He is our first child. As a typical soon-to-be dad , I was nervous about his birth. My wife, Renee, had so many question; all of which I was uncertain or did not know the answer. As her pregnancy progressed, it was clear that we needed to find someone that could help us with the day-to-day questions we had regarding pregnancy and delivery. Many of our questions had simple answers, others did not. In the 20th week of Renee’s pregnancy, our list of questions and anxiety about becoming first-time parents grew tremendously. It was around that time that we decided to hire a doula. Renee and I showed up to a meet-and-greet with other expecting parents and doulas. Here we met Heidi. Heidi instantly connected with us. She was very understanding and never treated us like we had a dumb questions. She was easily available and provided us with a sense of ease when anixcously awaiting Jay’s arrival. During the delivery, Heidi was very helpful. Most importantly, she stayed by my wife’s side. Nurses and doctors frequently checked on Renee. However, their visits were short. Heidi was able to provide more reassurance and explain their practice. Heidi made the world of a difference. Renee’s stress level was significantly decreased just by having Heidi in the room. Heidi provided many tools for making the delivery experience as comfortable as possible. We could not have been happier.
