HEIDY, Birth & Postpartum Doula, CLC

Heidy is a Certified Postpartum Doula and a Certified Lactation Counselor. She is warm, caring and passionate about helping families in the postpartum period.

She recognizes that the postpartum period can be very unpredictable and sometimes challenging, and strongly believes that families need a lot of support to ensure a smooth transition into parenthood, whether they are embarking on this journey as first-time parents or as seasoned parents.

Heidy enjoys supporting parents as they discover their own parenting philosophies, and get into their new family dynamics. She is knowledgeable in baby care/development, bottle feeding, and lactation/breastfeeding/chestfeeding, amongst many other things.

Heidy shares her expertise in a professional manner, and always offers non-judgmental and unbiased support. And when she is not supporting other families, she is spending time with her own family. She is the mother of two active and loving boys, a very social bearded dragon and a cuddly fur baby.

 


TESTIMONIALS


Heidy’s positivity coupled with her knowledge and care for both mother and baby made me feel so supported. She seamlessly stepped into our environment and found ways to make a distinct impact, from recommending a walk, to helping prepare nourishing foods, to watching my son while I napped for an hour.

In addition to being an incredible postpartum doula, Heidy also helped with breastfeeding advice. Again, her positivity and outlook helped me see opportunity where before I was dismayed and overwhelmed.

Prior to delivery, I couldn’t understand the need for a postpartum doula but now that I am on the other side of the experience I can definitively say that getting Heidy’s help those first few days made all the difference. I highly recommend working with Heidy if you can. I cannot imagine that there is someone more equipped to support mothers during this very special and important time in their lives.

I am grateful to Heidy for helping our family transition smoothly from being a family of three to a family of five when our twins, Leo and Alexandra, were born. Heidy helped us with all types of chores from changing diapers, giving the babies a bath, folding clothes, helping put dinner on the table and reading books or playing with our older daughter who was at times feeling left out or jealous. I would wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Heidy to any growing family, including twin families, because of her warm and caring demeanor, her calming presence and her ability to know what I needed (bringing me a glass of water or just asking me how I was feeling) without me having to ask. She helped me with breastfeeding, showing me how to tandem nurse twins, and was not only supportive to me, but also to my husband and our 4 year old daughter. She was loving with our newborns, her soft voice and touch was tremendously soothing to them, playful with our older daughter (she is a mom herself), and easily fit into our family structure, allowing us to lead while also teaching us some helpful tricks around bottle feeding and bathing.
