Testimonial for Heidi Blanton-Pohl, CPD & Birth Photographer

Heidi is an incredible doula! We worked together for the birth of our first child, Sarah. My husband and I felt comfortable from the first time we met in person at our house. Heidi spent time answering all of our questions, helping us think through our birth plan, and showed us her goodie bag of supplies for the birth. Her level of preparation helped to relieve us of some of the butterflies ahead of birth. She was authentic, down to earth, and experienced.

 


During our stay at the hospital, Heidi was there by my and my husband’s side throughout the induction process. Heidi’s presence and advocacy for the safe delivery of our baby made all the difference. There was a defining moment when a difficult decision had to be made. Heidi stepped in and called a time out for us to process. She talked through options with my husband and I, and then instinctively knew we needed a moment to discuss next steps together while she waited in the hall. It was in that moment when I knew we had made the best decision to work with Heidi. Heidi then spent hours partnering with our clinical care team to get me to the finish line to dilating to 10cm. She encouraged me and kept me going, even through the tough moments leading up to birth.

If you are considering a doula, Heidi is amazing. She was the best part of our birthing experience and my husband and I both admitted to each other that we were sad when she left the hospital after delivery. She is an advocate and wore so many hats as a coach/mentor, photographer, and friend. We cannot say enough kind things about Heidi and her role in the biggest moment of our lives!!
