Client Testimonials for Carley McCaw, CD(DONA)

Post a testimonial for Carley McCaw, CD(DONA)



Carley brings a great energy to a birth.

She is positive, cheerful, and quickly adjusts to the environment. She carries a Mary poppins style birth bag with her with essential oils,  massage ointments, face wipes and a handheld fan (the fan was a life saver). She made sure the room was relaxing with candles, a diffuser and dim lights.


For me, facing my birth alone and uneducated would have left me feeling defeated. Due to complications very little went as planned but Carley helped me to adapt and have the confidence to stick to the plan as best we could. She helped me advocate for myself when needed. My delivery quickly could have changed to a c-section but with position recommendations and her confidence boosts, I was able to have a healthy vaginal delivery.


My husband was not originally a fan of hiring a doula, but in the end he was so thankful she was there. Carley frequently gave him recommendations on how to support me which we both loved.


One of my favorite parts of hiring a doula was the post birth check in. Carley gave me the opportunity to process my birth and ask questions, something I realized I never stopped to do, and it was such a healthy way to move onto the next chapter caring for my newborn. Carley will add so much to any birth and I cannot recommend her more!
