Testimonial for Caryn Fields

Caryn did an absolutely amazing job supporting me (and my husband) during the whole labor process. We decided to hire her for baby #2 because I wanted to have a drug free labor. My husband and I didn't have all the tools we needed to have our first child without pain medication and we wanted to be much better prepared this time around. She did a wonderful job getting to know us beforehand and getting a feel for what I might want/need during labor. She has plenty of knowledge and resources available for our questions/concerns.

I unexpectedly needed to be induced two weeks early and she was ready, coming the moment we called her. It was so helpful having her there. She knew just what to do and did a good job of keeping my husband involved (they were both squeezing my hips during each contration), giving me water when I didn't even realize I was thirsty, and just keeping me encouraged.

What I found most helpful and impressive was that she asked the nurse to turn down the pitocin (I would have never thought to ask or even think that they could do that). At the end of my labor I was really struggling with the pain (I begged for an epidural, but was past the point of being able to have any pain medication). She was able to get the nurse to turn the pitocin level down, which helped tremendously and made the pain so much more manageable.

I am so grateful for the support that Caryn provided and will be calling her should there be baby #3 :)
