Carole was inspired to become a certified doula (CD) to empower and provide women with continuous, unconditional, emotional, spiritual and physical support during their pregnancy, the birth experience, and beyond.
As a Registered Nurse (RN), Carole can support and guide her clients and act as a resource for women and their families, helping them navigate confusing medical terminology and decision making, by providing evidenced-based information, so that clients may make the best informed decision for themselves and their baby.
Carole is also a certified postpartum doula (CPD), lending her expertise to women and their families on postpartum care for mom and her newborn. As part of that care, she is also a certified lactation educator counselor (CLEC) and will offer her support for the many issues which may come up around breastfeeding.
As your doula, Carole will provide you continuous support, education, and let you know your options, so that you can make the best informed decisions for your pregnancy, birth and after your baby is born. She is there not only to support you but to reinforce your power by having her support and your partner’s support. Carole will comfort, guide and support your vision, while helping you maintain your desires for your baby’s birth, so that both you and your partner will have the birth you want.
