Testimonial for Carina Bishop

Working with Carina was a great experience. We hired her a bit late compared to most people, I was 38 weeks pregnant, but she was quick to schedule our consultation appointments, provided us with helpful handouts regarding her services as well as additional info about pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum care. I went into labor at 11:50pm the night before our due date, a Saturday night and she responded to my husband's texts right away and came to our house the moment I felt I needed her there, around 2:30am.

On our way to the birth center she even stopped at the store for us to pick up a few items we hadn't yet purchased so we didn't have to think or worry about it. While I was in labor Carina was the one who provided me with a cold towel on my forehead and neck and kept me comfortable with constant words of encouragement while also hanging back when my husband stepped in, she was definitely tuned in to what both my husband and I needed when we needed it. 

I pushed for several hours before my husband and I were encouraged to try a more aggressive position which included me sitting on his lap facing him and Carina standing behind him holding my outstretched arms and fully supporting me while I lowered myself between his legs to push during each contraction. She was emotional strong for us as well as physically strong. She played a key role, along with my husband, in helping me to finally deliver my daughter into this world and I am so thankful she was there. 

Carina also provides the service of placenta encapsulation (I encourage everyone to look into this option) which we had her do for us. Since giving birth to my daughter I've felt very emotionally stable and confident as a new mom and have basically been on cloud nine, I do give credit to the placenta capsules I've been taking. When you do the research behind it it becomes clear how and why it makes perfect sense to move forward with this postpartum option.
