I am a certified birth and postpartum doula who believes that every mother has her own birth story to tell and my goal is to always make sure she has the birth she wants. As a Registered Nurse who previously worked with women and newborns, and now as a doula I am able to continue to pursue my lifelong passion for working with pregnant women, their partners and newborns. I value communication, respect and compassion, believing every family is unique and with that I am able to provide a personal, judgement-free approach to your birth and postpartum experience. I believe that there are as many ways to give birth as there are women in the world and that having continuous support, being educated, and knowing all of your options will allow you to make the best informed decisions during your pregnancy, birth and beyond. I will comfort, guide and support your vision, while helping you maintain your desires for your baby’s birth, so that you and your partner will have the birth you want.

My goal is for every family, with my support and guidance, to feel they have made the best choices with the birth they were given. As your doula I will empower and provide you with continuous, unconditional, emotional, physical, and spiritual support for you and your partner, during your pregnancy, birth experience and postpartum period.

Thank you for considering me to support you during your pregnancy, through your birth experience and beyond. I consider it an honor and privilege to assist families during this very special time in their lives. Being present at a birth, while supporting and empowering mom and her partner is special gift given by parents and not something that I take lightly.

There are many benefits to hiring a doula. It’s been shown that women who hire a doula have shorter labors, with fewer complications, use less medications during labor, including Pitocin and have a much lower risk for having a cesarean section.

This latest research was published in August 2014, by the American Journal of Managed Care, see it here.

  • You’re the best decision I’ve ever made. You exceeded all of our expectations. Your knowledge and support gave me the confidence to believe I could have the birth I wanted. AND I DID! I’m so happy you were with us. Your constant comfort and knowing the right thing to say just when I’d need it the most, is not something that you can learn. It just comes so naturally to you. You’re amazing. Thank you from our little family.
  • I can’t say enough great things about Carole. We hired her because of her experience being a nurse. She is so knowledgeable and was always able to answer our questions. She is warm, caring and very organized. She took such good care of me. I cannot imagine having my baby without her.
  • I planned to interview at least 3 doulas and Carole was my first. After only 1 hour with her, she made me and my husband feel so confident, that we canceled all the other interviews and hired her immediately. She was so helpful during my pregnancy, always available to answer any questions and during my birth she was right by my side. She not only helped me, but took care of my husband too and coached him how to help me. Carole’s support was invaluable. Hire her!
  • When I started looking for a doula, I asked everyone I knew and Carole’s name kept popping up. My labor was tough and long and Carole was with me every step of the way. I don’t know what I would have done without her. I really wanted a natural birth and would not have been able to have that without Carole’s support and experience. She’s a “labor-whisperer”. She was so nurturing and kept the whole room calm. She was great with all of the nurses and doctors. She’s an excellent doula and a wonderful person.
