Welcome to my little space on the internet! I'm Caryn and I want to thank you for visiting my site to learn more about me and the services I offer.
During my long battle with infertility, I became engrossed with all things pregnancy, birth, and baby. The more I learned, the more passionate I became and the more I needed to know. When I became pregnant with my first biological child and selected my midwife and eventually my doula, I knew that I wanted to be an active member of the birthing community as a supporter and an advocate.
After supporting some friends informally, I formalized my education and training with CAPPA Labor Doula training and continue to further my education in other courses and workshops offered in my community.
Besides my passion for birth work, I am a strong advocate of breastfeeding and do all I can to support and ensure a comfortable, healthy, and wonderful breastfeeding experience for both mother and baby. I am owner and admin of Breast is Best and the mother of 2 breast fed babies/toddlers.
I am a firm believer and advocate for informed decision making.
I believe that a woman has the right to make the best birthing decisions for herself and her family and it is my job to help ensure that she has all the information and resources available to make a confident and informed plan.
Every birthing experience is unique and every woman has different visions and desires. It is my personal mission to ensure that my client's wishes and desires be respected and supported so she'll have a lifetime of positive birthing memories.
