Chanelle Chase

Where do I start? Caitlyn and I met when I was less than 5 weeks pregnant. She was by my side throughout every exciting, special, and nerve wracking experience. I feel like I would have been lost without her during my pregnancy. She made these 9 months even more special for my partner and I. Caitlyn was able to teach him and I so many coping skills and helpful tips along the way. She helped me bond with my unborn son in ways I wouldn’t have been able to on my own. Things rarely go according to plan when you are pregnant no matter how hard you try to force it, and it can be scary. Having Caitlyn there for me through birth defect scares, relationship bumps, change of plans for my birth experience... it truly made all the difference for me. There is nobody better to help support and hold your hand along this journey. She is so educated, so straight forward, and also so very validating of how you feel. I’m blessed to have had her in my life for my first pregnancy and you will not be sorry having her as your doula. Thank you again Caitlyn for being here for me, every step of the way. My family thanks you.
