Carolin was one of my Karma Doula doulas at my long, hard second birth (I ended up with 3 doulas because it was such a long birth). She was vital in the success of my VBAC and overall birth experience! What started out as a planned birth center birth turned into a hospital (non-emergency) transfer after over 24 hours of labor. Carolin came with me to the hospital and stayed with me for another 5-6 hours before another doula took over. I had met with her before labor multiple times and she knew my fears and desires of having a VBAC, and was able to offer insight and suggestions. During the labor, she, along with my midwife and birth assistant, were great at helping me weigh the pros and cons of all decisions I had to make about my birth process, and helped me feel safe, taken care of, respected, and positive. She was intuitive to what I needed and when, was supportive and confident and put me at ease, and helped me with many Spinning Babies techniques to help baby with positioning and keep labor progressing. And she followed up with me with a postpartum visit about a week after baby was born. I am very grateful I had Carolin as a doula and would not only recommend her to others, but will reach out to her again if I end up having another baby.
