    Practice overview

    2 prenatal visits where we discuss your birth preferences, any concerns or questions you may have, and things like spinning babies.

These visits are an opportunity to get to know each other and establish a trusting and supportive relationship. Presence at the birth: I will be at the birth from when I am needed up until two hours after the birth. I will be there to support you every step of the way. 1 postpartum visit: we can discuss your birth experience, and any questions or concerns you may have and I can provide support with breast/chestfeeding. As a part of my practice, I am available to you 24/7 for any questions or concerns that may arise before or after your birth. You can contact me via phone, text, or email.

    Care philosophy

    My philosophy centers around respecting and supporting the autonomy and informed consent of the birthing person. My role is to help them access information and resources they need to make the decisions that are best for them. I also believe in trusting the birthing persons instincts. Birth is a natural and powerful process, and I know that the person giving birth is the expert on their own body.

      I am so glad we found Caitlin and were able to get her support through my pregnancy and labor. Being our first time we had a lot of concerns/questions and she helped ease our minds. She is so calming and really listens to you. She was available and responsive which is so critical. She was there for my long labor and helped me through my contractions. I would recommend her to friends and family as she was a critical part of my support/care team.

      Caitlin was an amazing and critical part of my birth team, especially as a first time mom. She eased my nerves during every weird symptom throughout most of my pregnancy. We had a couple meetings during my pregnancy that made me feel she was 100% on board with my birth plan and was there to support me every step of the way. My labor was long and she was there the entire time I needed her. She helped guide my husband in ways he could help keep me comfortable and gave him a break when he needed one and she stayed with me. Having a doula gave me so much peace as birth approached because I knew I’d have someone there to help every step of the way and would support my birth plan even when it went a little off course like it usually does. Caitlin is the sweetest doula out there and I’m so lucky she was ours.

      I chose to hire Caitlin because my husband was deployed during the time of our son’s birth. She was always very attentive to what I wanted. During birth she comforted me the entire time. I’m also very happy to say that I had the birth I wanted and felt empowered with her reassurances throughout. Having her there was the best experience I could have asked for.
