Testimonial for Caellyn Everson, CD(DONA)

My husband and I knew that we wanted a doula to help us in the labor and delivery of our first child.  I interviewed 6 doulas, not really clicking with any of them, before meeting with Caellyn.  Her warm, calm, confident demeanor put me at ease and we clicked right from the start.

During labor, I wanted my husband with me at all times, and Caellyn was there to assist both of us.  He was my physical and emotional support, and Caellyn was our birth coach.  I ended up having a somewhat difficult labor - we didn't know it at the time, but my baby was in the Posterior position (face up) and her head was tilted up (military presentation), and my body was having difficulty getting her to descend.  I had to work through uncomfortable positions, leaning into the parts that hurt the most.  Caellyn was there to encourage me to go deeper and further into these positions than I was willing to do on my own, pushing me to keep going when I wanted to quit, or didn't have the strength to do it on my own.  I was able to have a successful vaginal birth, and I am 100% certain that this was because of the combination of my excellent midwife team, and Caellyn's constant support.

After delivery, Caellyn came out for three post-partum visits.  My husband and I don't have a lot of family in the area, and it was great to have that in-home support in the early days and weeks.  I also elected for placenta encapsulation (despite some skepticism on my part), and was so glad that I did!  I feel like they've made a big difference in my emotional stability and being able to handle some of the more difficult days.  Throughout the process, she connected me with countless resources - lactation consultants, mommy and me classes, the Spinning Babies website.  She continues to be an amazing resource.

My experience with Caellyn was perfect for my birth experience, and I can't recommend her enough.
