If you are looking for a Doula, look no further, Caitlin is your choice. Here are some of the reasons why. I hired Caitlin to assist me with preparation for the birth of my first child. I was impressed when I met her the first time, she has a good temperament, great listener, has a compassion for assisting woman to birth their own way. Her own personal story touched my heart and she is genuine and sincere in her work. I was impressed with the fact that she does not take a lot of clients in a month, which means, she is going to be there for the birth of your child. Unlike other Doula's that I had interviewed, they have a lot of birth deliveries in just one month. So, rest assured she will be there for the birth of your child. In my case, she took the time to listen as we prepared for the birth plan that I wanted. She was available to answer any questions that I had and even providing reference articles. She respected my choices and on the day our son was born, she was there. She worked really well with the hospital nurses and my doctor. She was truly there for me and she provided me the support that I needed. The most important thing for me was to be informed and Caitlin made sure I had the information that I needed in order to make the choices that worked for me. She encouraged me to continue working out during my pregnancy as that would help during labor, she was spot on. My labor was manageable and my body was ready. I felt empowered, prepared, ready, and I gained a lot of trust in my body to do what it's designed to do naturally. I would recommend Caitlin to any woman and I will certainly use her again if we decide to have other kids.
I was looking for a doula to help me with the birth of my second child. My first child was
a c section and I desperately wanted a natural birth the second time around. My doctor was in favor of a vbac but I knew I would need help since I didn't even expience labor with my first. A friend of mine has given me a brochure with several doulas on it and I called Caitlin. I knew right away she would be the right person for me. Even at our first meeting I received way more information than my doctor had given me about labor and delivery. She knows her stuff! I felt confident about having a natural birth knowing she would be there to coach me and to be my advocate. She had me fill out a birth plan which was also very helpful and we went over it together in great detail. Then came time for her to meet with my husband and I. I was a little nervous because my husband wasnt totally ok with me doing a natural birth with no pain meds and he expressed fear about seeing me in pain during the birth. He even wanted me to just get another c section instead of doing a natural birth because he knew there were risks of my scar rupturing during a vbac. Caitlin explained the process to him, had him practice pain reducing tecniques on me and answered all his questions. By the time she left, he said "if we have a third child, let's do a home birth" those are words I never thought I'd hear him say! Caitlin was very prompt at answering my phone calls, emails and texts. She has a very calm and confident personality and is straight forward which is what I like. I would highly recommend her! It turned out that I did end up having to get another c section but she was still willing to come to the hospital and also came after the birth for a follow up visit. I had a great experience working with Caitlin!
Caitlin was AMAZING! I had natural hospital birth and her presence made my experience the best it could be. She was encouraging and supportive, and the education she provided prior to birth was invaluable. She even helped coordinate placenta procurement and encapsulation at the last minute! My partner was extremely skeptical of a doula, but after our experience with Caitlin, he recommends doulas to friends expecting babies. I left birth feeling empowered and prepared, an experience I could not have had without her there with me.
We had a fabulous experience with Caitlin! We were a little behind in contacting a doula as we had just moved back from out of the country, but she immediately got on board with us and helped us figure out our plan for the birth of our second child. I had been induced with my first child and had a bad recovery experience due to all of the drugs that were given to me during labor. I was determined to have a natural delivery if possible for this one, and Caitlin helped us prepare mentally and physically for what it took to do it! We had a very successful delivery (without drugs!) and Caitlin was a big part of that. She was incredibly responsive at any hour of the day and was right on top of things when I called her in labor at 3am! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a support team and coach before and during labor. She's been there, done that! She really helped my husband be able to help me and in turn we had a great experience!
You can hire any doula.
But this is your & your childs birth and it does not happen that often.
Caitlin has the NATURAL INSTINCTS to help when needed without asking.
She was perfect & more than I could have asked for I was amazed as she comforted my wife of 3 years.
She just knew when & what to do to help her.
If we have any more we would Hire Caitlin again.
Doulas are worth their weight in gold and thats alot now
Caitlin is an amazing doula, I can't say enough good things about her and my husband is still talking 6 weeks later about how great it was to have her. She assisted me a lot before, during and after the birth. I could text or call at any time and she would answer all my questions. She was always very knowledgeable. I felt she really understood my emotions during and after the labor and that made me feel very comfortable and close to her. I had back labor and she helped me manage the pain by encouraging me through the contractions, calming me down in the breaks, guiding me through the different positions and helping relieve the contraction pain by different touches. She came to visit me at home after my birth to check on me and baby and brought delicious lactation cookies! It was a nice treat!
Thank you Caitlin for everything! You will always be part of my memories from this special day.
