You saved my life. You brought me into your group and held my hand while I cried and grieved my son’s diagnosis and the uncertainty of his survival. Sat with my babies to offer support and relief when I hadn’t slept in days, after we got to bring him home. You are the biggest reason I survived those weeks when my post partum was so bad that I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, thank you my friend for bringing a candle to walk along side me in the dark and help me find my way back into the light.”
I think that you are one of the most positive, uplifting people I know. You have always been a positive person in my life and very, very supportive. So not just one positive experience, more like not one bad experience. I can’t say that about anyone else.
I first met Heather when she invited me to teach breathing exercises to the MOMs group she led. Heather is gifted in creating safe spaces and supporting moms. I once saw her in target where she gave me the best, most needed hug. I knew she was full of love and support.
My last child (#5!) was unplanned and a complete surprise for me. My husband and I were having problems with our marriage at the time. I became very anxiety ridden and even depressed. I was worried I was too old to have another baby or that his/her siblings were going to be too old to give him/her attention. Heather picked up quickly with just a few random fb posts that something wasn’t quite right. She was halfway across the country from me, but always reached out via messenger to check on me. She talked me through each doubt I was having and told me to check into pregnancy anxiety and depression. I didn’t realize it was something that happens during pregnancy like that. She encouraged me to talk to my doctor who confirmed it. She also helped me realize that I should not be ashamed of my anxieties or depressive thoughts. Thankfully with Heathers help, just talking to me often, I did not end up needing medication. I honestly, do not know if we (baby & I) would have gotten through the pregnancy without her(Heather). I couldn’t sleep many nights and Heather was always readily available to chat. I always felt so much better after each talk we had.
Fortunately, the further along I got, the easier things got. I was worried about post-partum depression, but ended up being fine. Heather continued to check on me to make sure all was well with me mentally. I now have an adorable 3 year old daughter whom her siblings and everyone love! She was our missing puzzle piece in our family and put us all back together. I am forever grateful for Heather being around and helping me through everything at that dark time in my life.
Hi, I’m Heather! I never expected my life to lead me to birth work, but after experiencing a traumatic birth and suffering from Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders I have been on a mission to bring non-judgemental, empathetic support to as many families as I can.
My personal pregnancy and birth stories are varied, beginning with stuggles with infertility, early miscarriage, an induction with epidural, and med free.
No matter you experiences, no matter your preferences, I’m rooting for you.
