Fee Details

Hello! My name is Cailey Forstall and I am a certified DONA International Birth Doula. After graduating with a degree in Health and Exercise Science with minors in both Entrepreneuship and Psychology - plus, a little soul searching - Itook my first steps to enter a line of work in labor and delivery. I offer a sliding scale fee for my birth services, which can be adjusted based on need and services utilized (ie. prenatal, birth, postpartum, belly binding, etc.). I travel anywhere in the NC triangle and surrounding areas in an effort to best support my clients. I am able to offer Postpartum Doula services starting at a rate of $25/hour. This service can be organized separately from birth support or supplemented to birth services.

I was matched with Cailey as my doula for the May 2020 birth of my first baby. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 risks, Cailey was unable to be at the birth, but the support she provided prior to the birth was terrific. We had a virtual pre-natal consultation where she provided many examples of comfort measures for me and my husband to use in early labor and we talked through birth preferences so that she could put together my written birth plan. Cailey was knowledgeable, warm, comforting and professional. She answered my concerns and questions when I was scheduled to be induced, making me feel more at ease with the idea of induction, which I was nervous about. She put a very clear and organized birth plan together for me with visual icons that were easy interpret. Cailey followed up with me following the birth of my daughter with post partum resources which I greatly appreciated. I know cailey would have been a great support and advocate at my birth if COVID had not restricted her from being there and I was very happy with all the support she provided during my pregnancy and after my birth.

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!
