BIRTH DOULA SERVICES
"I always knew that giving birth was a wild ride, but there is absolutely nothing in this world to describe the intensity of it all. Without the support system I had I don't think I would have birthed the way I wanted to. Even a strong willed person will come to a breaking point, & they helped me push through... Heidi is someone you NEED on your birth team... I seriously couldn't recommend her enough".
- Michaela H.
MEET & GREET
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Fill a contact card, call, text, or email to schedule your complimentary meet and greet.
I take on a limited number of clients at any one time to make sure I can give you the full care and attention you deserve. I provide up to two 90 minute prenatal appointments to discuss the vision for your birth, and we will work together on a plan on how to achieve that vision. We will also discuss pain management, practice labor positioning & Spinning Babies techniques to get baby in the best position for birth. As well, I provide breathing & relaxation techniques so you feel fully informed and prepared to conquer your labor and delivery. If you have a support person you would like to bring with you, absolutely please do! I love being able to teach others, & include dad as well.
LABOR & DELIVERY
This is the exciting part! You get to meet your baby! I provide 24 hour on call service starting at 38 weeks until you go into labor, where I will stay with you as an advocate & support person with around the clock care until the delivery of your baby. During labor, I will create a calm atmosphere with lighting, birth affirmation cards, candles, aromatherapy, essential oil rollers, and music. As well, we will do pain management techniques with rebozo, frequent labor positioning, Spinning Babies for optimal baby positioning, breathing instruction, and massage. I also provide optional add ons including use of a TENS machine & CBD products.
The postpartum appointment takes place at your house, where we will discuss your birth & how you are adjusting to life with your newborn. Whether this is baby #1, 2, 3 or beyond, having a new baby in the house is a big adjustment with a lot of emotions, & I am there to hold space & make a plan for adjusting to this new and exciting life!
Birth Photography can be added to birth doula services as an add-on or stand alone service.
As a birth photographer, I come when you are in active labor (unless already hired as a birth doula) and will document your labor, delivery, first moments + initial breast/bottle feeding. First moments include first moments as a family, baby being weighed + measured, detail shots (little hands, feet, umbilical cord, ears, nose, etc) and a name sign shot if you have one.
Sneak peeks will be delivered within one week and you will receive a full edited gallery within 4 weeks after baby is born.
Contact me to learn more about payment plans & affordable pricing. I know firsthand the difference a doula can make during your birth - I want to make sure everyone has access. I am open to trades as well, so please contact me with any questions, I would love to talk!
Contact me for my 2023 Pricing Guide + Birth Portfolio for more information on packages + individual sessions!
I am CURRENTLY accepting birth photography, maternity, newborn, and family photography clients. Please fill out a "Contact Me" form on the website and I will get back to you as soon as I can!
