About The Doula: Heather Collins

I am a birth and postpartum doula with a passion for helping families as they dive into parenthood. As a scientist with a doctorate in Biology I am fascinated by the intricacies of pregnancy and birth but as a mother I know that there is so much more to this transformative time. Birth matters. Not because it has to happen in a particular way or place but because it is the beginning of everything. Everyone’s journey into parenthood is unique but, universally, having confidence and support as you enter this new chapter can make all the difference.

I provide unconditional, compassionate support for all types of births and during the early postpartum period. I am here to listen to your doubts and concerns, answer your questions, give continuous physical and emotional support during labor, facilitate bonding and ultimately I aim to instill confidence in your own strength and abilities.

My passion for doula work stems from experiencing the impact of positive support firsthand before and after the births of my two sons. This inspired me to complete my birth and postpartum doula training with MotherWit.
