“Heather was one of the smartest decisions we made in our birth plan process. from the very beginning she was kind, warm, informative and extremely helpful. We had such peace of mind as we approached our due date with Heather supporting our birth plan and continually sending us helpful information and encouragement along the way. The most invaluable part of Heather’s services was of course during the labor and delivery portion of our journey. She kept my husband and I calm, collected and educated while we worked together as a team through each contraction. She was a calming voice and soothing hand in such an arduous painful process. We honestly don’t know how we could have gotten through the birth of our first child without her support. Every step of the way she was there to help in any capacity necessary, large or small. Having Heather there to guide us as we learned how to navigate the new world of parenthood was an invaluable investment and one we would recommend a thousand times over to anyone seeking the same. We are grateful to have met her and hope to work with her again with our future children.” -Valerie

“Heather has been a godsend since bringing my baby home. She checked in with me during my pregnancy to see how I was doing. Once we began working together, Heather made me feel comfortable in embarking on this new journey into motherhood. She takes the time to listen to my concerns and offer support and advice where she can. Even though I have a supportive family, I truly believe I would not have adjusted to being a new mom as well as I have without her support. I highly recommend Heather to anyone looking for a doula or postpartum doula.”  -Rachael

“Heather really helped me – and my family – enjoy my maternity leave. She prepared delicious, healthy and nourishing food for us (based on our specific preferences), so I could focus on bonding with my baby girl – and heal physically. Some of my family’s favorites are her yummy (and beautiful) salads, best chicken soup, killer mac and cheese, famous famous apple pie, dessert bananas on a skillet – and to this day I still make her healthy breakfast cookies (which are gone very fast). Everything that Heather makes is with lots and lots of love.” -Esther F.
