About Me


Hi! I'm Heather.

I see my job as your doula kind of like a wedding planner, only for birth! (With a lot more unpredictability mixed in.) Just like last minute things can throw your wedding plans off like bad weather, travel mishaps, and vendor issues...birth can also include some unexpected "bumps" in the road. (Pun intended!) 

So while it's my hope your birth plan will go off without a hitch (last pun I swear) and all of our planning will lead to your dream birth, I'm also there to help you navigate any unforeseen issues or complications that may arise. 

But no matter what your big day might throw at us, at the end of the day I will be there, basking in your glow as you hold your baby for the very first time. 

I can't wait to get started with you.

How I Became a Doula

For as long as I can remember I've possessed a deep empathy and a desire to nurture others. After practicing massage therapy for seven years, I felt called to look for new and more impactful ways to serve and uplift using my skills and intuition. After having had two children of my own, the idea of working with families during their journey to parenthood felt like a natural direction to pursue. I received my certification in 2018 and I haven't looked back since!

My Philosophy

As a birth and postpartum doula I strive to offer intentional and evidence based support tailored to you, through active listening and acknowledgement of your personal truths and choices. I aim to become my highest self through service to others while embracing inclusivity and the beauty, complexity, and diversity within each individual and family.​ I support all families through the entire range of reproductive journeys.

  • Hospital Birth

  • Homebirth

  • Unmedicated Birth

  • Epidurals

  • Induction
