Heather Doherty

My name is Heather Doherty and I am a 33-year-old psychologist and mother of two boys under two. My younger son was a 30 weeker preemie. I started writing about my experiences as a therapeutic release with no plans to share. After being inspired by the stories of other mothers, I hope to share my experiences to provide support and comfort to other NICU moms on this journey.

Baby Health

Dear NICU mama: Your strength is profound–and unexpected

Your experience with your precious baby will be one that, at times, can feel like it is breaking you into a million pieces–but I promise that feeling is just the start of your transformation into a stronger, wiser, humbler version of yourself.
