I highly recommend Cara as a Doula and instructor. In addition to working with her during my childbirth, we took her most extensive class package. I started the classes feeling anxious and fearful about birth, and by the end felt much more confident and even a little excited. Cara shared relaxation soundtracks and strategies that were a huge help in preparation and during labor. She also helped with optimal positioning of the baby for labor. Before working with Cara I had very little confidence in my ability to go without an epidural, but with Cara's help I ended up having exactly the drug-free childbirth experience I wanted. When my water broke early and I had to go straight to the hospital due to meconium, I was worried that my birth plan was going to fall apart. But Cara told me just the right things to say to the midwife so that my labor was able to progress naturally. During active labor Cara used various techniques to help me through contractions and suggested different positions for my husband and I to try. Cara provided just the right level of support without being intrusive, so that my husband and I were able to share the experience together. If we have another child, we definitely want to work with Cara again!
