Testimonial for Carling Sothoron

Carling is amazing! I'm so thankful for the day I decided to seek out a doula and connected with Carling. Throughout my pregnancy, Carling helped me feel calm in a way no one else did. I tend to get really amped up when I'm anxious and Carling's *always* calm, quiet and steady demeanor helped bring me back down to level each time I was worried. She approached all my concerns with kindness and logic and had a solution every time (even doing research for me to help). My baby was born after I was induced during the quarantine period of the pandemic, and I didn't know how virtual support would work. But it turned out great. Because we'd gone over all my wants and needs in advance, my partner was able to help so much more than he would have otherwise. The hospital team had my birth plan and I had Carling on the phone, and I made it through unmedicated like I'd hoped to. Carling was exactly who I needed to help support my journey. I wholeheartedly recommend her, in person or virtual!

Carling did an especially good job helping me navigate the post partum difficulties I faced. I don't make enough to breastfeed well because of a previous breast reduction and her support helped me find the confidence to keep at it (almost to 4 months!) and she connected me with donors who I could feel safe accepting breast milk from. Its been a hard, but good, journey so far and I feel there would have been so many more tears without Carling's support. I'm so grateful to have had her help!
