Kelly C. | Doula in Raleigh, NC

Best of Both Worlds Doula Services

    Practice overview

    I have worked with children and families for 24 years and I truly believe it is my calling. At just 15 years old, I started my own babysitting business. At 17, my love of children was very strong and my desire to work with families grew tremendously. In college I studied Elementary Education & Early Childhood Education and while I did not become a school teacher, I still worked closely with children and families at various child care centers and eventually became a Career Nanny. Best of Both Worlds was "born" after becoming a wife and mother while still working as a full time nanny. I realized that I too needed some support after having my son. Because of this, it was time to move into a new phase of my career. Over the last 8 years, I have supported dozens of families in physically, emotionally and spiritually and I would love to support you and your family in any way I can.

      Kelly was my calm during my stormy pregnancy. Everything that could go wrong with being high risk did and Kelly was there to help me through it all. Emotional support from her is unmatched, and wish I had known her with my other pregnancies. Her responsiveness when I was frantic was reassuring and communicating with my husband during and after labor and delivery was amazing. If I were to ever get pregnant again, I wouldn’t want to experience it without her!

      Unfortunately for me I had my baby girl right at the start of our Global Pandemic Shutdown. So there was limited access to the hospital for anyone outside of my husband. However, Kelly stayed plugged in the entire time. We communicated virtually and she was sure to follow up consistently once we were home. Given the unexpected circumstances she did an amazing job with having to make a pivot in how she provided her services.

      We hired Kelly very close to our due date. She was very accommodating and made sure we had all the information we needed leading up to hospital admission. After a difficult delivery, she was wonderfully supportive in the days and weeks following.

      I loved Kelly’s personality and genuine concern about caring for me as well as my family throughout the pregnancy and postpartum. She was kind, professional, thoughtful and offered great tips and advice. I enjoyed having her as my doula!!
