Heather was my postpartum doula for my second child. I already had a lot of infant care knowledge from my first (I totally wish I could have worked with Heather the first time!) so our work was more focused on caring for me, which was nice. Heather provided recipes for lactation snacks and made them several times. She also helped prep breakfast sandwiches and fruit which helped a ton after my husband was back at work. I talked with her about a pumping schedule and she washed pump parts for me. She was so helpful with doing and folding baby laundry, of which there was so much. I was able to take much needed time for myself and to take care of my own health needs (from as simple as taking a shower to attending my own appointments) with the peace of mind that my daughter was in excellent hands. She gave my daughter a bath - it was nice to have that off my plate for a day! She accommodated my schedule to provide extra support when I was solo parenting both of my kids which I really appreciated. Heather is warm, caring, and very knowledgeable- I would definitely recommend her to others for doula support!
