"I hired Caryn as my birth doula for my third baby! When I met her for our consultation I knew she was going to be the one I wanted at my birth! She answered all of my questions from day one. She came to my home and met with my husband and I to give us some tips and tricks for laboring at home (I wanted to do that as long as possible) and talk to us about our hopes and wants. She arrived at the hospital before we even did (middle of the night) and was there every step of the way. I ended up needing a c section and expected her to be gone when I came back to the room and she was there waiting for me and baby!! She later came to my home to see how we were doing and check up on us with some treats and flowers in hand. I hired Caryn as a doula but I feel like I came out of this with a new friend. I would definitely recommend Caryn! She has a heart of gold! She is caring, compassionate, and well educated! Loved her!!!"
"We were so impressed with Caryn's birth class that we decided to hire her as our doula, too. It's never too late to have a birth class or loop in a doula. We met her in the last month of our pregnancy and we felt we had ample time to prepare. The workbooks from the birth class are an excellent reference for us as we prepared. We paged Caryn after we had hit 5-1-1 in contractions and had checked into Utah Valley Hospital. She arrived with 10 minutes despite it being early morning. The benefit of having Caryn in the room with us is that she stayed with us throughout so we didn't have to request a nurse every time we wanted to readjust laboring positions, or migrate to the bathroom. At no point did it feel like Caryn's personal opinions got in the way of doctor/nurses advice. She was crucial in translating medical terms into layman's terms so we could made educated decisions. If we didn't have Caryn, then we would've ended up getting the epidural much earlier, which could've led to a slow labor and ultimately a C-section. Every penny was worth it. Caryn brought us peace of mind throughout the process."
"This is the best thing we have ever invested in! We feel so confident with every stage because of this class (pregnancy, birth and postpartum all of it). We learned so much, every class we walked away raving about what we learned. I couldn’t imagine going through this pregnancy without this class. So so thankful. Caryn is also so amazing, she is so sweet, judgement free and is just all around so great!"
"Caryn has the most knowledgeable, kind, and comforting way about her, that really made a difference in our labor/delivery room! I am so grateful she was able to drop everything in the middle of the night to be there and be an advocate and support for us. Caryn is definitely someone you can rely on. Even though things changed suddenly, and most things didn't go as I planned....we had a beautiful, wonderful experience that Caryn played a crucial role in. Caryn is the absolute best! I would, and do, recommend her to my best friends and family!!"
"I was so excited when I found out that I was pregnant for the first time because we had waited over five years. With that being said I still didn't know much. My husband and I took Caryn's birth class and it provided so much information. When it was time for our baby to come, she came pretty quick. We got to the hospital at 3 am and our daughter was born at 6:15 am. Caryn was always by my side, giving me little suggestions to help ease the pain. She is a natural teacher, great friend and the best doula ever."
"Caryn was my doula for my son's birth. She was a great resource for support before, during, and after his birth, which was a challenging experience. I especially appreciated several comfort measures she utilized during labor which helped me cope with some significant hip pain that had been debilitating during my first childbirth."
