Testimonial for Carina Bishop

During my whole pregnancy, I was indecisive about whether I wanted to use a doula or not. I was having a home birth, so I couldn't decide if I wanted an extra person in my birthing space.  It wasn't until I was 37 weeks pregnant, at a birthing class that I decided to hire someone. I interviewed 4 doulas, and was very lucky to have found Carina. She and I had just spoken via text and phone call when I decided that she'd be a good fit for me. I was supposed to meet her in person on the same day that i began having contractions. Ten days early! I texted her that I was having contractions and she (without meeting me) agreed to come be there for me. She was a calming presence and had a soothing voice. She reminded me to relax my shoulders and use a low voice during transition. She used counterpressure intermittently on my hips when my husband was speaking with my midwives. She was such a support for me and she took some of the pressure off of my husband. After the baby was born, she helped me with latching while breastfeeding and it was her advice that got my baby to latch! With her experience, she knew what I needed before I did. Having her in our home while our baby was being born was such an easy decision. Her presence relaxed me between contractions, and I had only just met this wonderful woman! I would hire Carina again so quickly. We were so lucky to have found her at the very last minute.
