Testimonials from My Clients

Anchorage doula“Before Heather even became a doula I knew she was the one friend I wanted with me in the delivery room! Her calm demeanor, bright & cheery outlook, and infectious smile are the perfect combination... she was such an encouraging support during my first delivery there was absolutely no hesitation on my part to include her for my second. I am so glad that she was there with me both times, and I am certain that my husband was too! Thank you, Heather, for such wonderful birthing experiences!” Jeremy, Jen & Babies Joella & Ben (June 13, 2004, April 19, 2006)

Anchorage doula"Having a doula present at my childbirth was very important to my husband and I. During my initial doula interviews, I knew from the start that Heather was the doula for us. She was very personable and enthusiastic and I knew that she would help us achieve our goals for the birth. We live in Cordova so we didn't get to meet Heather until 3 weeks prior to my due date. Still, we felt completely comfortable and confident with our decision. The birth of our daughter was the most amazing experience I've ever had. My husband and Heather were the perfect team to coach me through the entire process. Jim, who knows me so well as an individual, knew nothing about childbirth and what I was going through. And Heather, who didn't know me well as an individual, had lots of experience with childbirth, both as a mother and a doula. The two of them together had all the knowledge needed to guide me and assist me. Heather was fully aware of my wishes and desires and she was amazing at helping me achieve that. From Jim's perspective, he feels that his experience was enhanced because Heather could offer him advice on how to help me. He never once felt that having her there took away from his role as my coach. Heather is a very special person to be able to do the job that she does. It takes a lot of energy and dedication. Jim and I are forever grateful for her being there for us." Jim, Signe & Baby Ingrid (Oct 8, 2007)

"From a new dad's perspective, having Heather there with us during my wife's labor and delivery was a godsend.  When my wife first mentioned wanting to hire a doula, I will admit being a little skeptical.  I wasn't sure how I would feel about having someone else there, if I'd feel at all pushed aside, or if it would just be "weird".  When the time came, however, I was so very thankful to have Heather there.  She was an extremely valuable resource, not only helping my wife through the experience, but showing me what I could do to help, and offering us all of her knowledge and expertise throughout the whole process.  I would definitely recommend Heather to my family and friends who were looking for someone experienced, caring, and knowledgeable about helping to welcome their new baby into the world!"

Anchorage doula"Wow! I don’t know where to start on how to thank you for the fantastic job you did for us. We are so very thankful for your words of encouragement, the back and foot rubs (they worked!) and all your positive, positive words." Michael, Colette & Baby Graham (June 4, 2008)

Anchorage doula“Thank you for your support and care during Greta’s birth. We were so happy to have you there. It truly made a difference in making the experience wonderful (and a lot less scary!). Many thanks!” Mark, Kristy & Baby Greta (January 3, 2008)
