Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, Lactation Counselor, Placenta Encapsulator
My name is Heather Vanderhoff and I am a birth doula, childbirth educator, and lactation counselor. I obtained all of my certifications through childbirth international. Giving birth to my first daughter in August 2019 inspired me to birth doula for other mothers. My role as your Doula is to embrace, empower, educate, respect, listen, and advocate for you. I Want you to have options, and be respected and supported in your birth choices. Pregnancy, birth and motherhood is already stressful enough as it is so therefor my goal to you is to take some of that stress off your shoulders.
Birth Doula Services:
I will provide 2 to 3 prenatal visits depending on what you prefer. We will discuss birth plans, breastfeeding and bottle feeding, pain management and stress reliving techniques, and postpartum.
I will be on call starting when you hit your 37 week mark. I am available in person phone, text, FaceTime, Skype, zoom or whatever works best for you until time of birth. After birth I will stay for up to two hours to help with feeding, recovery, etc.
I will provide one post partum visit at your convenience to discuss your birth, any questions and concerns, and to talk about how you and your baby are doing. At this time if you also need lactation services I am able to provide those and schedule further lactation appointments with you if needed
