My experience with heather was short , but nothing short of wonderful. She had joined forces with a Doula I had hired about a month or 2 before I gave birth and they became first coast Doulas. When I first met her , she was incredibly sweet and helpful. I was pregnant with my first so I had no clue what to expect. She offered alot of advice and even demonstrated yoga posses that I could do to help ease back pain and help my baby engage in the birth canal. I really messed my back up when I was younger, and the weight of pregnancy did not feel too good, so I found these posses extremely helpful in relieving the pain. The next time I saw her I was in the end stage of labor and I was about to deliver. She really helped soothe some of pain by pushing on my hips , and just comforting me. If anyone’s ever been through labor, you know just how helpful that can be. The last time I met her was at my postpartum visit. I was set on baby wearing , so she brought a few different types of wraps and demonstrated how to put them on. She also recommended certain wraps for the hot Florida weather , as one of my main concerns was keeping my baby cool while baby wearing. Being a mom herself she also offered some great advice and reassured me that things get better. She’s incredibly sweet , easy to talk to , and knowledgeable. She really is great ! (:
Heather was wonderful! She provided the advice and support that I needed as a first time mom.
Heather showed up ready to assist with whatever I needed help with. We ended up chatting for about half of her 8 hour shift about her experiences as a mom and she listened as I shared my stories about the birth and recovery of my first child. The rest of the time, my husband and I went out for lunch and then napped. Having Heather over allowed for a much needed break, and I would highly recommend her for other first time moms!
