Caroline was my doula for my third pregnancy. I had never had a doula before but felt like from what I had heard, having one would be quite beneficial for my goal of a second natural childbirth. Caroline’s personality made it so easy for my husband and myself to get along with her. Her bedside manner was just what I needed in the toughest moments of labor. She has a gentleness to her strong nature and is one to always speak up when necessary. She never pushed her own preferences on me, but always had solid information if we needed help making a decision. My doctor and nurses loved her as well. Caroline was a fantastic support to my husband and I during labor and delivery, never getting in the way, always where we needed her. I would pick Caroline to be by my side again in a heartbeat.
My friend Caroline attended the birth of my son, now 14 months old, as my doula. I have known Caroline for several years, and know her to be kind, personable, caring, and incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about pregnancy and birth.
During my pregnancy, Caroline was so helpful and encouraging; and I always felt like I could ask her anything. She helped me and my husband create a birth plan we were comfortable with, and during my birthing time in the hospital (we used Vanderbilt Midwives) she was so helpful in taking on the responsibility of communicating our birth preferences to the nurses and midwives. Having her there as a strong, but respectful, mediator allowed my husband and me to focus on the labor process. Having her there to support us was wonderful.
She was so helpful during the birth process, even attending overnight and into the next day. Not only did she encourage vocally, but she physically made contractions so much easier by rubbing my back and supporting my hips to alleviate pressure. It was a long labor process with some unexpected complications, and she so respectfully and lovingly helped us navigate our options.
I am forever thankful that my friend Caroline was there for my birthing time, and that in the end I gave birth to a healthy baby boy in safety. It was so wonderful sharing the joy of his birth with my lovely and nurturing friend Caroline. I full-heartedly recommend her! She will be an exceptional asset.
