Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I am very passionate about birth. I have been studying pregnancy and birth for 6 years. I am a homebirth and natural birth advocate along with an advocate for the birth you want, whatever that is! I strongly recommend couples educate themselves from many different sources. I also strongly encourage all birthing people to listen to and follow their own instincts over all. I'm also a Midwifery assistant and offer montrice services and a student midwife. I am a Lactation Counselor and member of the Child Birth Circle.

Cari is wonderful! I could not recommend her more. Her support and willingness to advocate for pregnant and laboring women is unparalleled. After interviewing numerous local doulas, Cari was by far our favorite. We just “clicked” on our beliefs surrounding pregnancy and birth. Further her prices are very reasonable (almost too reasonable! Time to adjust your prices, Cari? Lol).

After having a positive birth experience at a midwife-owned birth center in WA State, the prospect of a hospital birth with an OB in NE was daunting. Cari helped me prepare for the birth experience I wanted. She worked with me to develop a birth choice document that reflected my wishes and addressed my concerns with a hospital birth. She advocated for us during labor when the hospital staff were pushing for continuous monitoring despite my request for intermittent monitoring. She also provided information and support after our baby was born as we navigated issues with the state mandated newborn screen. She was also wonderful with our toddler daughter. My husband was very thankful for the extra support in the hospital as well.

If you are looking for a doula in central NE, you couldn’t do better than to hire Cari!

My husband and I were super skeptical that we would ever NEED a doula on baby number 6. However when I made the choice to have a vbac all natural we decided to meet with Cari. She came to our house and spent time answering questions and even left me some books with certain pages marked pertaining to my fears. She checked in with me a few times a week to see how I was doing and if I had any questions. I kept in constant contact with her the closer we got and she never hesitated to answer my questions. I never felt judged in any way for anything. Never once did she try to convince me to do things differenlty than what I wanted. My husband was also super comfortable with her. 

Delivery day, I was induced and she came to the hospital bright and early and sat with us while we got ready for the induction. She walked the halls with us and was an absolute angel. She became such a huge support for my husband to keep him focused on my goals. Without both my husband AND Cari I never would have been able to say I had an unmedicated, induced VBAC. Cari helped show and use pressure points, hold ice packs on, help me remember to breath and how to relax. She even took pictures, per my permission, and I have been able to see the birth of my amazing baby boy. I would recommend her for ANY kind of delivery. She has even offered to come over postpartum and help clean, take my other kids, or just simply hold baby so I can rest. 

I would never have another delivery without a doula!
