Testimonial for Heather Yanovitch

I was so glad to have Heather as my doula. We met a couple weeks before my due date and made a birthing plan for the big day. When I started having contractions and was heading to the hospital around 6am I called her and a few moments after I arrived at the hospital she was there. She was incredible and supportive every step of my labor process (which took over 24 hours) and helped me every way she could, besides advocating for me at the hospital. A very difficult moment for me was when a doctor told me that if I didn’t dilate the final 4 centimeters necessary for birth, I would have a C-section. That made me really desperate and disappointed at myself, since my plan was for a natural birth. Heather was really important at this moment and the final hours before delivery, because she didn’t stop believing I could achieve my goal of a natural birth and didn’t let me give up either, even though I was ready to give up. At the delivery time she helped the nurses and my husband and gave me words of encouragement to keep going. Afterwards she took beautiful pictures of the moment and I’m forever grateful. My husband and I also had a 4-hour postpartum visit where she helped us with house chores and taking care of our new baby. Thank you Heather for everything!
