Caroline has worked with families and children for many years. After working as a professional nanny for over 5 years, Caroline decided to continue her career infamily care as The “Columbus Doula” in 2005.
Caroline's experiences as a labor doula have included a wide variety including unmedicated and medicated; vaginal and cesarean and has assisted clients at most Central Ohio hospitals. Caroline has experience with a variety of childbirth preparation methods, including HypnoBirthing®, Bradley, and Lamaze. As a postpartum doula, Caroline specializes in supporting mothers and families with postpartum depression, breast &
bottle feeding and baby care education.
Caroline brings her own personal experience to her clients. She is a mother of two young children- a boy, whose long and complicated labor ended in a cesarean, and a girl, whose birth was a successful vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Both children were born in a Columbus hospital.
It is important to choose a doula you and your partner both feel comfortable with. Caroline offers a free consultation (interview) where you can ask her questions about her training, experience and doula specialties.
To retain services, you will need to review and sign a Doula Contract. A deposit is required at contract signing. All levels of doula services have a proposed payment plan. Plans can be flexible or a new plan with your needs in mind can be created at the time of signing the contract. Caroline accepts checks and credit cards (a small surcharge may apply).
Discounts are available for widows/widowers and military families.
Congratulations on taking the first steps to finding out how a Doula can provide your family with the support, education and help that you are looking for! I hope you find this website useful in your search. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a FREE consultation.
I would be honored to be part of your birth or postpartum experience.
