So much that’s said and written about becoming a new mom revolves around fear: what you shouldn’t do, what you must be afraid of, what mistakes you could make, how terrifying birth will be. Sitting with Heather is the very opposite of this: from my first interaction with her, she left me feeling empowered and confident, and sure that every decision I made would be the right one for me and my family.
Heather makes it clear that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to birth or parenting: a natural birth might work for some but not others, breastfeeding might be easy for some but not others, co-sleeping might be a nightmare for you but that doesn’t mean you’re a worse mom for having your child sleep in a different room. And she supports you in whichever of these options you choose, while giving you the information you need to know that the decision you’ve made is right for you. If you’re looking for a welcoming, supportive, non-dogmatic approach to parenting, you’ve come to the right person.
