Carley was absolutely wonderful through out my pregnancy. This was my first and I had so many questions and knew next to nothing about giving birth. She was very knowledgeable about everything and super helpful. Definitely eased my mind and made me more confident in my choices  I unexpectedly went into labor 4 weeks early and she was ready and there for me to help this unexpected event go so smooth. I couldn't ask for a more wonderful experience.

Carley was a huge help during and after my daughter was born. She has an infinite amount of knowledge to share with you, and really wants to make sure that you are making the best decision for your family.

She is easy to communicate with and more than willing to answer all my baby related questions no matter what it was about. Her positive spirit and caring nature made her the perfect person to help navigate being a new mom. I would recommend Carley to anyone of my expectant mom friends!

Carley was my doula for my sons birth in November of 2016. She was very attentive to my wants and needs. Anytime I was in pain and was irrational she would come to me face to face and calm me down, tell me to remember what I wanted. I.e no pitocin or laboring in the tub ect. She would then be my advocate to the staff of what I wanted or needed to help me be more comfortable. She was there the while laboring and even did some postpartum care. Carley is very knowledgeable about birth and labor and how to be your rock when you think there is no strength left in you. She bring it out in you. She helped comfort my husband when he was noticeably stressed and that in turn helped me. My birth did not go as I expected, most never do. But having Carley there gave me immense comfort during such a stressful time. I will most definitely be using her for my next birth and postpartum care. She was the absolute best!
