Hello! My name is Heidi Long and I am a Birth Doula with Doula Fidelity serving Portland, Oregon families in Northern Oregon. I am a trained and Certified Birth Doula through Natural Resources in San Francisco. I had the opportunity to learn about pregnancy, labor, childbirth, and beyond by two incredible Midwives who started off as Birth Doulas just like me. Since my training back in 2016, I have been blessed to experience many births along my journey. Each birth I have attended has added immeasurably to my experience and knowledge. I've had the privilege to work alongside Direct Entry Midwives (DEM), Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM), Midwives in training, Nurses, OBGYN's, Birth Doulas as well as an array of professional medical staff during my internship at South Coast Midwifery Birthing Center in Irvine, California. I received my certificate of completion as a Birth Doula Intern in 2017.
The services I offer to the community include the following:
I'd love to be a guiding hand in the next chapter of your life. I am passionate about birth, therefore I am passionate about you!
Every birth is a primal experience and beautifully unique for each new family. This is the main reason I have devoted myself to this line of heartfelt work. Knowing that birth is unpredictable, I would like to give you the proper labor help you need. Together we will gather all the information you need, discuss your birth preferences, and practice labor rituals so that we can create a birth experience that is most aligned with your needs!
