This was my second birth and I was not sure that we would need a doula the second time around, but in the end I was glad we had another advocate for us on our team and, even more so, I appreciated her ability to remember details my husband and I might have overlooked in the heat of the moment.
She was also great at preparing for the birth. She created a pictographic birth plan so that the facility would be able to easily understand our wishes and lined up a back-up doula in the event she would not be able to make it.
Cailey had a quiet, warm and constant presence while I was in labor. Amidst the throes of a long, arduous birth, Cailey kept my husband and me grounded. It is in part because of her that I was able to achieve my goal of a natural, unmedicated birth because of how well she looked out for my well being during the labor. She was the one who remembered to keep me nourished with food and drink so that I could stay the course, and she helped me to relax between my very strong contractions with some light massage. Although the labor went on for an unexpectedly long time, she stayed calm and cheerful to the very end (even though I did not!)
We were privileged to have Cailey as part of our birth team and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a doula who is energetic, well prepared and able to think on her feet.
Cailey was EVERYTHING we wanted in a doula. Though this was our second birth, it was our first birth out of the hospital (and without an epidural). We are overjoyed with how our birthing time turned out!
Cailey is laid back, possitive, very kind and respectful. She came prepared to our birth and stayed very present the whole 12 hours.
We chose to have a doula to support us as we leaned in on each other for support. Cailey was very mindful of this and was a great birth partner. We planned a natural birth at Women's Birth and Wellness in Chapel Hill with my husband as my primary birth companion. My husband felt very reassured to have Cailey present. He says she was very approachable and quickly had ideas and was able to support him in a way that let him focus on me and not on memorizing everything we learned in our birth class. With my husband feeling confident I was able to RELAX knowing that I did not have to remember anything. Cailey worked GREAT with the staff at the birth center. I felt that I was supported with lots of love, knowledge, and cooperation. I could just focus and let go.
I would recommend Cailey to anyone looking for a loving birth!
