Hi! I'm Heather Hilton; I am a licensed home birth midwife, doula, childbirth educator and placenta encapsulation specialist working in and around the Napa Valley.
 
I've known for a long time that I wanted to be involved in birth, but it wasn't until 2008, pregnant with my second child and learning more about natural childbirth that I truly found my passion.
Having already had a medicated hospital birth with my first child, I knew that I wanted to do things differently. I hired a doula, decided to have a home birth, and continued educating myself about natural childbirth. The more I learned, the more confident I became that this was not only what I wanted for myself and my birth, but this was something I wanted to help other women achieve as well.
Tired of my 9–5 job and ready to pursue my dream, I decided to follow my heart and start helping women through childbirth. After seeing only my second birth at home, I knew without a doubt that my path was not only to be a doula but also to become a home birth midwife!

In January 2009 I began my midwifery apprenticeship and started coursework through the Midwifery College of Utah's distance-learning program shortly thereafter. My training has allowed me to work with many different midwives, and also gave me the opportunity to travel to Haiti in the spring of 2012 where I volunteered as a senior student midwife. Then, having completed my training, I became a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and finally a Licensed Midwife (LM) in 2013.

I am also the mother of three amazing children who have each taught me precious lessons about life, love, patience, perseverance, gratitude and so many others; as have each of their births.

Through this journey, I have come to believe very strongly in the strength and ability of women and their bodies to give birth, that birth is a natural process and I am an all around birth advocate.

It is my wish that every mother be treated gently, with love, dignity and respect, and be given the opportunity to have the birth they desire. It is a great honor to be present during a birth; I have truly found my calling!
