Testimonial for Heidy Ramirez

Heidy & Angie provided the best pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum care for both births with our two daughters, born 2.5 years apart!  Heidy was there every moment, providing support via text 24/7 with professional expertise in evidence-based prenatal, birthing, labor, partner, and postpartum support in Spanish & English, with gentle, loving care.
 
We first trusted Heidy with our lives during the height of the pandemic in 2020, and again in 2023, a trust she took very seriously, maintaining strict health & safety protocols; just like any family, we wanted to come out both times, alive, healthy, happy & safe.  
 
With our firstborn, while I hoped for natural labor, I made a tough decision for medically necessary induction at 39 weeks.  In every moment, Heidy affirmed my strength.  When I had to make another tough decision for an epidural, I placed my trust and hand in Heidy's.  Within 20 minutes, I was fully dilated, and in less than 10-15 pushes, our first baby was born!   

She again went above and beyond the call of duty with our second-born, who came naturally without pitocin via a 24-hour spontaneous labor that began at 12:15 a.m. on a Friday.  With our second, contractions moved fast, and I dilated early, so we opted for an epidural, and things slowed down quite a bit, but with Heidy's steadfast gentle support and encouragement, Carlos & I took a brief moment to just be with each other, increasing the oxytocin to bring us quickly into pushing phase. With our birthing preferences respected, I was able to breastfeed my second-born right away, skin-to-skin the first hour and a half, just like my first.

We could not have been better prepared without Heidy's support. In our postpartum care plan for our second-born, our firstborn looked forward to Heidy's gentle care each day with so much love!  Heidy will always be a part of our family.
