Hello! My name is Heather. Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I'm a West Virginia University graduate living in Lancaster,PA, a happy wife to my husband Mathieu, and the mama of two amazing littles! A 2 year old girl and brand new baby boy.

I knew absolutely zero about birth when we first found out we were pregnant with our daughter. Friends and family members had had natural births, so why couldn't I? When we began to explore childbirth education, that’s when my journey with The Bradley Method® began.

My births were completely pivotal and transformative experiences that deeply contributed to the person I am today. It’s become my passion to help empower couples to experience what I did—not just the birth of a baby, but a true sensory experience of the power and beauty of childbirth without unnecessary interventions. I believe this gives both babies and families the best possible start in life.


I wholeheartedly believe that birth is a normal, powerful, physical and spiritual experience for which women’s bodies are uniquely and wonderfully created. The process of labor is much more than simply a means to that much-wanted end of holding your baby in arms. Labor is something to be experienced, rather than endured. It can be heroic and empowering, something you remember with great joy and pride in yourself and what you accomplished.

Birth matters! It matters to women, to partners, to babies, and to families. Giving birth is a profound opportunity to work with your body, your partner, and your baby in a way that is unlike any other life event you’ll experience.
