Testimonial for Carolyn Parrish CD(ACBE)

I honestly can't say enough to express my gratitude and appreciation for Carolyn. I have always dreamed of a vaginal birth after having had a CS back in 2020. My daughter was breech and was stubborn enough to stay put! I knew once I found out I was pregnant with my son, I wanted to try everything I could for a VBAC. One of the biggest recommendations was hiring a doula. I had never heard of a Doula, and genuinely had 0 idea where to start. I posted on a Facebook group and was flooded with comments and recs. I ended up interviewing 4 Doulas and as soon as I connected with Carolyn, I knew she was who I wanted to go on this journey with. She had 3 appointments with me during the course of my pregnancy, and each one absolutely prepared me in being successful. Fast forward to having to be induced (which I really didn't want) and being terrified of the risks intervention after intervention could have on a VBAC patient. She was an ear to listen and a (literal) shoulder to cry on. She encouraged me to lean in to all my emotions and feelings, and man was that a game changer. I went into my induction confident that I would do everything I could in my power for my VBAC, and whatever the outcome, I put forth the effort. After 24 hrs of labor, many many encouraging words, music, essential oils, lighting and multiple positions (the best) later... I welcomed my precious son into the world via VBAC. I honestly couldn't have done it without Carolyn. She is forever a friend and I'm thankful for our time together during the most vulnerable time of my life.
