About Me

"I had a great feeling about Heather from our first conversation: she was knowledgeable, attentive to my preferences, easy to talk to, confident, the list goes on! I'm grateful to her for all of the support, knowledge, and the peace of mind that she brought us during this momentous event." -Rebecca

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 January of 2019 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.​
