Testimonial for Heather McCullough CPM, Hypno, CAPPA Faculty CLE, CLD, CPD

Heather was indispensable throughout the whole process. She was able to give us advice, support and encouragement during switching doctors, issues with low amniotic fluid, having to be induced and breastfeeding issues afterward. She was always available for advice and really knowledgeable, reassuring and keen to go out of her way to help. As is usually the way, my birth plan of laboring at home with Heather for as long as possible was left by the wayside when the doctor decided to induce me for low amniotic fluid and sent me straight to the hospital from the doctors office. I developed high blood pressure during the labor meaning I had to stay in bed lying down rather than moving around or getting in the shower to help deal with the labor pains. Despite all this I was still able to have an analgesia free labor and delivery which was really important to me as it felt like the labor I wanted still, even though the circumstances had totally changed. This was due entirely to Heather. She just knew what to say and how to sooth a laboring woman. She knew intuitively when to talk and massage in just the right places and when to be quiet and take a step back. She stayed with me when my husband left to get food and explained the doctors jargon and what was happening to him as well as suggesting to him how best to help me during labor pains. Throughout the labour we must have had 8 different nurses coming and going, but Heather was the constant. That was massive. My husband was really quite upset and angry when I first suggested we hire a doula as he felt that this indicated I didn't feel he could support me adequately, but now he's the one encouraging all his friends to hire a doula and calls Heather our guardian angel!! He's totally converted!
