About Me:

I have been practicing midwifery since 2010 and in that time have been privileged to attend over 700 births. I believe a woman should be comfortable with her provider and that she and her provider should have a trusting relationship with open communication. I started out at PCC, transferred to and graduated from U of O and went to Columbia University for nursing & midwifery. After graduation from Columbia, I practiced in the Philadelphia area for five years where I gained invaluable experience and since starting with the Legacy Health System in 2015, I've gained even more experience and insight into how best to care for women and their families. In my free time, I enjoy many outdoor activities, including running, hiking, camping, skiing, paddling and mountain biking - many of these activities include my husband and our two German Shepherds. I love being an Oregonian, the Pacific Northwest is an amazing place to be outdoors.

I did have to wait 45 minutes after my appointment time to see my provider, but outside of that it was an extremely positive visit. I couldn't ask for a better care team.

Provider Heather @ Mt Hood women's clinic is great.

Sometimes this provider doesn't take the time to listen and actually understand the questions or concerns I have, and the solutions offered don't address what I'm asking. This provider doesn't always take the time to explain why they are recommending certain tests, and doesn't stop to make sure I understand why they are having me do these things. Generally, when they seem rushed is when these things happen, contributing to the feeling of being unheard and things not being explained well. This provider does a good job with asking questions about life beyond these visits, taking an interest in my life. They are very knowledgeable and helpful when they do take the time to listen to what I'm asking, and when they do, they do a very good job explaining things satisfactorily. This provider offers good resources to help me understand different topics related to our visits. Overall my experiences with this provider have been positive, aside from sometimes feeling unheard, rushed, or confused about why certain things are being recommended.

Heather Carrion is incredible. At this visit we had to talk about the Mt. Hood Birthing Center closure which is HORRIBLE & should NOT be happening!! Shame on Legacy!!

Heather was the first provider I've ever encountered pregnant or not that did not center the visit around my weight. It was a pleasant & very much appreciated encounter.

If every doctor could be like Heather, the world would be a better place. Heather is literally the ONLY doctor on the face of this planet that has:-Never made me uncomfortable-Has ALWAYS made me feel heard-I've never felt I had to argue my needs with or choices-Has made a difference to make the "women's " clinic a more Inclusive environment for all uterus owners. Heather's always email back with in 48 hours to questions. [Detail removed for patient privacy] Heather has always been supportive of the choice I want to make with MY body. Heather cares and her patients know it.
