Testimonial for Caryn Fields

During our 8th week of birthing classes I left feeling overwhelmed and anxious about the entire birthing process. At that moment I realized that I wanted to try and have our daughter naturally and that I needed all the help that I could get. I started to ask around and Caryn's business card was given to me along with a wonderful recommendation from our class insturctor (who has been a midwife for over 30 years). My first impression of Caryn was that she was very kind, sincere and had a very calming energy. She seemed very knowledgeable and agreed with our viewpoints and wishes for the birth of our child. After leaving the appointment, I knew that we didnt need to talk to anyone else and that we had found our doula!

Over the next few weeks Caryn was in contact with us and was very easy to reach. We were able to meet with her in person, 2 times before the birth. She was wonderful in making holestic recommendations during the last weeks of my pregnancy to ease any discomforts. I liked the fact that she was very organized and easy to talk to; direct and focused without giving us too much information that may be overwhelming.

I went into labor at 39 weeks. Caryn was wonderful in the labor room and really helped bring peace to an often hectic enviornment. She graciously darken the room, kept the room calm, infused aromatherapy oils, kept my favorite relaxing music playing when I needed it the most, applyed counter pressure and amazing massages. Her beautiful words of encouragment were extremely powerful in a time when I didnt think that I could go on. I remember just trying to breathe and listening to her voice for support. I really do not think that I could have gone so long without any medications without her being there by our side. After hours and hours of labor, my husband was also exhausted and she was able to jump in to give him some rest. I can not say enough wonderful things about her. Thank you Caryn!
