We have used Heidi and Maureen at all of our births. Maureen was at our first birth and Heidi at the birth of number two, three, four, five, six and seven. Numbers three and four were twins!! We had six (seven) AMAZING births. The birth experiences were so beautiful and special. We feel that this was largely in part as a result of the compassionate support we received. Heidi was extremely patient with me during the long birth process of the twins as my labor was on and off for a week. She was patient and supportive as she came to my home day after day monitoring me and the baby and ensuring my health and sanity.
Maureen and Heidi now hold a very special place in our hearts. Having their birth support was so empowering. Having their knowledge to advocate for you and help you during your birth is invaluable. They take the time before the birth to find out what type of birth you desire. When you are laboring and giving birth there is no need to worry that things are heading in the right direction. They are there to see that things are progressing safely and help facilitate the process as needed. Maureen and Heidi provide support and encouragement in the most patient and kind way. This releases anxiety allowing focus on laboring and birthing.
As a result of their support, we were able to have the birth experiences we desired: safe, unmedicated, natural, vaginal, home births. It is such a blessing to have had such positive birth experiences. Our babies births are something we will treasure forever. Thank you, Heidi and Maureen! We love you both and are eternally grateful.
