Freebirth Advocate, Educator and Author

I'm Heather Baker, trained as a Traditional Midwife and have been attending births since 1996. Mother to 5 children who were all born at home, 4 of which were completely unassisted. I am a natural health supporter, teacher and educator. I have attended all types of births including twins and breeches. I believe there should be no governing factor in women's rights over the way they birth, with whom and when. I follow how our elders and ancestors used herbs for healing, as well as our intuition, free of conditioning by societal constraints. Parents should be the sole decision makers, taking on the care and responsibility fully, for their own selves and their child's well being. 

I wrote: Home Birth on Your Own Terms, A How to Guide for Birthing Unassisted, which is the #1 book on freebirthing since 2019. It has been translated to Spanish and French as well.

I also wrote the series~ Our Births, Our Stories ~ Volume 1-5. 

As an experienced elder who believes in traditional holistic healing, I offer support in pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum. I also offer in-person support if you hire me to travel to you. (not offering in person at this time)

In Illinois and Wisconsin, I only work as a doula/birthkeeper and educator.

I am also known as a Birth Keeper ~the term “birthkeeper” refers to a woman who supports a mother during pregnancy, the birth and the time after.  They encourage women to know their rights, empower themselves with knowledge to ensure that as women, they are claiming responsibility while welcoming babies as gently and powerfully into the world as possible with home birth and freebirthing.
