Testimonial for 312Doulas *Birth & PP*Spinning Babies*Hypnobabies

We chose Heather and Victoria as our doula team due to their amazing history of experience not only as doulas, but also as practicing midwives. We also loved that they were intimately familiar with Prentice Women's Hospital, as well as having worked with my particular OBGYN in the past. After going on an initial consult with them and hearing about their process and extensive birthing background, there was no doubt that they were the doula team we wanted to hire.

Heather was on call the day I went into labor. She was AMAZING. It ended up being a longer labor than I'd hoped for (20+ hours) but without her, it could have gone a completely different direction. Because of her familiarity with the hospital procedures and policies, she was able to get us a room with a birthing pool, and she constantly bugged them to get the pool into the room faster because they were dragging their feet on it. I was in too much pain to advocate for myself much, so I was so glad that she was there to do that for me. (She even was the only person in the room, nurses and doctors included, who even knew how to operate the pump for the pool!) Throughout the labor, she pulled out all the tricks of the trade - essential oils to help bring down my BP at one point, different positions to help the baby descend more quickly, and various other tools to keep me as comfortable as possible throughout the long labor (which I honestly feel would have been even longer without her). She was also in no way intrusive into the ability for my husband to participate. It's almost like she was this little fairy godmother in the background, offering gentle but constant help, guidance, and comfort, but letting him be the main pillar for support. She also has a very calming presence, and a very charming & diplomatic way of dealing with the medical professionals that will be surrounding you during a hospital birth.

Thank you for everything you did for the birth of our little guy!
