It is my greatest honor and privilege to serve.
Caroline was an amazing addition to my team and was probably one of the best choices I made when it came to my labor and delivery plan. I hired her late in the game since I was on the fence about hiring a doula in general (if you are on the fence, just do it! I promise you won't regret it). Even though we had just a few weeks till my due date she made sure to fit in several meetings to help create my birth plan and make sure I was completely comfortable. She checked in often and made it clear that I could reach out to her at a time with questions to concerns. Just having someone with knowledge and expertise just a text away put this first-time mom at ease.
My water broke a week early and Caroline was the first call I made. She helped me stay calm as my husband and I made our way to the hospital. She joined us at the hospital just a few short hours later and her presence was an instant reassurance. My husband was a great source of strength but having a third party there just to help and comfort you put both myself and him at ease.
She massaged me through my contractions and helped suggest different positions that might help me. When I thought I couldn't do it, she gently reminded me that I was. She helped me to stay as close to my birth plan as possible by softly reminding me of what we discussed and helping me hold off on an epidural until my labor was well underway and established (which was important to me).
She helped advocate for me with the hospital staff and worked seamlessly with my nurse practitioner to make sure she knew my status and helped to rush things along when I needed something, and it was taking a bit too long.
I would highly recommend Caroline to anyone looking for some additional support through the labor and delivery process. I really believe my great labor experience would not have gone so smoothly if she wasn't there.
Caroline was a wonderful addition to my birth team for my third baby's birth. I hired a doula very late in my pregnancy because I wanted a little extra support for myself and my family. Photos were also very important to me, as none of my previous births had much for photo documentation. My birth ended up being only about 1.5 hours, but Caroline was there most of that time, plus long after. She took plenty of photos and videos, as well as offered me the perfect amount of support during and after the birth. I’m very hands-off during birth and she read my cues very well. I felt at ease and calm with her presence and she was very helpful, kind and respected all of my wishes. I’m extremely happy I ended up hiring a doula and even happier I ended up with Caroline.
Caroline helped alleviate so many stresses I had about birth. Her support and expertise gave me the tools to cope with hours of labor and make the right decisions for my birth experience. Throughout my pregnancy, Caroline checked in with me to make sure I had everything I needed. When it came time to give birth, she guided me contractions by using massage and rebozo for pain management. My husband and I are thankful for Caroline's support; she helped make our birth a truly positive experience. We highly recommend Caroline's services.
