Testimonial for Caroline Overby, CD(DONA)/PCD(DONA)

We worked with Caroline for the birth of our first baby and from the moment we met her, she filled us with a sense of ease, calm, and confidence. Caroline went above and beyond with her energy, enthusiasm and time. In our pre-birth meeting, she gave us as much information as possible, answered all of our questions, got my nervous and silent husband involved, and helped us create a personalized birth plan. She was available over the phone to answer any questions in the lead up to the birth, which gave me peace of mind as I was nervously awaiting the start of labor. Once my labor began, she was an invaluable resource. I labored at home for about 18 hours and the only thing I would change would be calling her sooner. When she arrived at our home (around 2am) I was feeling overwhelmed by the contractions, and Caroline's hands-on guidance completely changed the tone of the experience. She helped me relax into the contractions and made me and my partner feel safe and calm. When we eventually went to the hospital and got the epidural, she continued to be very active and present with me, changing my positioning every 30 minutes which supported the progression of my labor. Caroline continued throughout the next 12 hours to tend to my every need which also gave my partner the time to sleep since we had labored through the entire previous night, and helped me remain calm. Once it came time to push, Caroline worked in sync with the midwives of the hospital and seamlessly integrated with the coaching, hands-on guidance and physical and emotional support needed to help me bring my baby into the world. I personally wanted a lot of hands-on and physical support, but Caroline kept checking in throughout the entire process to make sure she was serving my needs, respecting my boundaries, and honoring both my physical and verbal preferences. Her support was a key feature of my beautiful and calm birth. I have already recommended her to all my pregnant friends! We love Caroline!
