Testimonial for Heidi Blanton-Pohl, CPD & Birth Photographer

When I found out I was expecting our first,  I started to look into a doula. My husband needed some convincing on the idea, throughout my pregnancy it was a constant conversation of "do we really need this". When we met Heidi the first time she was so easy to connect with and I felt immediately comfortable with her being part of our journey. As our due date approached we ended up requiring an induction at 37 weeks. Heidi was technically not on call for us just yet, but she quickly made time for us to help prepare. We went in on Saturday afternoon for my induction. Heidi was with us while everything was started and helped talk us through what to expect. She left us to try and get some rest that night and was back early Sunday morning and with us until our baby was born Monday morning. Having her constant support and knowledge throughout was invaluable. One area Heidi excelled in was support for my husband. I had great care with the VCU midwife team so Heidi was able to focus on giving my husband tips and support on how best to help me. Being first-time parents he was not sure exactly how to help and having her guide him was great. Our little one ended up struggling and we had some scary moments pushing and right at delivery. Heidi was amazing and calm and continued to help guide us in the moment. Afterward, she let us talk about our birth story as many times as we wanted and joined in with passion with us. When all was said and done even my skeptical husband tells people how Heidi was worth her weight in gold. Bottom line: if you are looking for someone you can easily connect with, is knowledgeable and in the end become family, then Heidi should be at the top of your list.
