Testimonial for Cara Crowe

For my second child, I wanted desperately to be able to have a VBAC after having an emergency, debilitating C-section with my first. I thought that having a doula at my side would help to accomplish this goal, and I was right. I was attracted to Cara's years of experience and calm professionalism, and so engaged her to support the birth of my daughter. Before the birth, she shared stories of previous clients, and prior experiences in the actual hospital we planned on using. She was incredibly helpful the day of, sharing ideas and pain management strategies to help get me through the hours of painful contractions. She came early and made sure I could get through the difficult part of waiting and enduring. Then, during the pushing-- so hard-- she was both a coach, cheerleader, and friend. This was a great counterpart to the L&D nurse, who was more of a "cross fit trainer type" in terms of yelling at me to push. I will add that she also made my husband feel useful and supported, and he also appreciated the valuable role she played in our birth.

If you are looking for a doula with years of experience, wisdom, and strength-- in particular to support your goal of having a VBAC-- I highly recommend engaging Cara Crowe. You won't regret it. Good luck on your birth journey!
