Heather ONeal, APRN, CNM, IBCLC

My name is Heather ONeal, and I am a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) and an Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in the wild and wonderful state of West Virginia. CNMs are Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, previously called- Nurse Practitioner- with a specialty in pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum.

Beyond breastfeeding, I also endeavor to help new parents deal with major challenges such as mental health and body positivity in the postpartum period. I trained as a CNM at Mon Health System under Gail Rock and have worked as a CNM in the home birth setting. As a registered nurse, I have experience in labor & delivery, pediatrics, NICU, and PICU and have helped breastfeeding parents on all of those units. Having seen first-hand the mental/physical exhaustion and the breakdown in personal relationships under the stress of feeding a baby, I knew my calling- postpartum care (and all that goes with it).

I am a mother of two kiddos who each had their own feeding challenges and I’m a wife to a very handsome mortgage broker 

Katie DeWitt, BSN, RN-C

Hello! I’m Katie DeWitt, BSN, RN, and I have been a registered nurse for 11 years. I am a mother of two boys and a law enforcement wife.

My love for birth-work led me to a career in OB, where I obtained my RNC-OB certification. I have worked on a high risk unit for the past 11 years at WVUH and have experience in: Labor, triage, nursery, OR, postpartum and antepartum care. I even worked as a charge nurse for 5 years!

As a mother myself, I breastfed both boys for a year and enjoy being a resource for mothers and babies on their breastfeeding journey.

During the postpartum period, I know how foreign it all can feel in the first few weeks. That is the time that so many women and their families need the most help and care. It’s a time where I feel that families can benefit from my breadth of experience and guidance. I’m honored to be able to offer that to you.

Britt Klandorf, postpartum doula

I’m Britt Klandorf, and I love new moms and babies! I’m eager to spend time with you in this exciting, challenging time of your life!

I’m English and have lived stateside since 1983. I’ve been married for 37 years and we have two adult children and two granddaughters. I have a teaching degree- specialized in vocational special education. My volunteer experience includes Hospice, Compassionate Companion and baby cuddler in the WVUH NICU.

New parents (especially moms), deserve love, support, and hands-on assistance. Sometimes you just need a shoulder to cry on and a great listener during this new parenting journey. I’m honored to provide any and all of these to you as you adjust and gain confidence as a parent.

A Very Common Story:

"I’m currently 32 weeks pregnant with number 2, and I'm not gonna lie- I had a really hard time postpartum with my first baby.

I ended up with a third degree tear and more stitches than I could count. I also ended up being re-admitted 3 days postpartum for pre-eclampsia. Breastfeeding was a challenge as I didn’t properly prepare myself for it and had no clue what I was doing. I didn’t have great LC’s in the hospital after birth. After only being home for a day, I found myself separated from my son, having to pump for the first time and not a clue what I was doing. By the time I got to see a local IBCLC at my son’s pediatric visit one week postpartum, my son had lost too much weight and I had super low supply.

I gave up on latching and just exclusively pumped and supplemented to get him back on track. It took me forever to recover from my birth injury as I had no idea how to properly use a sitz bath or how to really care for myself. I was just kind of "winging it" based on the little instruction at the hospital I had received. I ended up with nipple injuries from pumping that went untreated and led to abscesses on both areola’s a month postpartum.

I have learned so much since going through that nightmare. There is not enough postpartum care for mothers… especially first-time moms! We just don’t talk about it, and I really don’t know why. One single checkup at 6 weeks postpartum is NOT enough. The very little instruction at the hospital and little supplies sent home are NOT enough. Relying on advice from other moms to help you through is just NOT enough. Everyone has different experiences and heals differently, and it can be confusing and overwhelming!!

This time around…I’m doing things a lot differently. I’m prepping myself by education and investing in my postpartum care before the baby comes. I want someone to come to my home to see how I am doing, to help me learn how to properly care for myself in those really vulnerable first couple days/weeks, to look at me as an individual and assess what my individual needs are both physically and mentally, to make sure I’m adjusting okay, healing properly, and breastfeeding successfully.

I don’t want to have to pack myself up, put on normal clothes and get into an uncomfortable vehicle to go to a cold office to be seen by a doctor that is rushing because they have 3 other moms waiting as well. I’m looking forward to all of this now, because I know I’ve set myself up for a better/healthier experience!

I found Heather when I was around 4 months postpartum with my son, and I wish I had found her sooner. Not only did she get me straightened out with all of my breastfeeding issues, she diagnosed and helped me heal my re-occurring nipple injuries that were missed by my primary OB because they simply had no idea what the problem was or how to treat it. I’m so excited to work with her postpartum this time around, and I know having that individualized care from the beginning at home is going to be a welcomed and positive change from my last experience.

I’m looking forward to a faster and better recovery from child birth in the comfort of my own home!"

Frequently Asked Questions

We will provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. You can also choose to pay with a Health Savings Account or Flex Spending Account. Insurance does not recognize postpartum home care as “necessary”, which we are actively lobbying to change. Therefore, we cannot accept insurance at this time.

All personnel entering your home will be masked and tested every 2-weeks for COVID-19. Heather ONeal has been fully vaccinated with both doses of Pfizer and has natural immunity from having COVID-19 in October 2020. All equipment will be disinfected prior to entering your home and any positive COVID-19 result will be reported immediately. If you have any further concerns about our COVID-19 protocols, we would be happy to discuss them with you.

No. Breastfeeding for Busy Moms is an independent business that enjoys the freedom of a more flexible healthcare model.

As an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and Certified Nurse-Midwife, Heather can identify and treat many of the issues that might arise during your postpartum period. Here are four examples:

1.) Heather takes your blood pressure and recognizes that it is not within normal range. Heather would refer to your OBGYN for a full work-up and medication adjustment as necessary.

2.) Heather discovers that you have developed mastitis and would write you a prescription for antibiotics and follow up directly as necessary.

3.) Heather determines that you are at risk for postpartum depression (PPD) and discusses medication, educates you and your partner, and refers you to a psychotherapist who specializes in PPD.

4.) Our Registered Nurse discovers that your baby is not gaining weight like they should. The RN will call Heather and then Heather will do a full lactation work-up including an assessment of mom and baby. Heather will create a plan of care as necessary, which may or may not include a referral to your pediatrician.

As a Postpartum Bliss at Home patient you would receive 25% off any additional lactation consults. Hopefully, you won’t need additional care if we have done our jobs correctly!

YES! You can purchase this package and forward the scheduling link to the person you are gifting this to. That person will schedule their initial call with Heather to set up their Postpartum Bliss at Home.
