Heather has had a passion for serving women and children for as long as she can remember. After the birth of her second child in 2014, she realized how little support there is for new mothers today. She wanted to open up a world of options & support to others in their pregnancy, birth, & parenting journey. While maintaining a career in business operations, Heather began to make the transition into the birth world and has been a doula ever since. She believes that birth isn't at all what is portrayed in the media, it is an intimate, transformative process that not only results in the birth of a baby, it results in the birth of a family as well.
Heather Bruhn is the founder of Birch Family Birth Services, which provides pregnancy, birth, & postpartum support to all of Ventura County as well as certain areas of Los Angeles County. She is a Certified Birth Doula through DONA International, and certified as a Birth & Bereavement Doula through StillBirthday. Heather lives in Portland, OR with her husband and two daughters.
"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers- strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength."
