- Drive you to doctor’s appointments
- Prepare meals
- Grocery shop
- Do laundry

I was fortunate to have Carol as both my birth and postpartum doula with my first daughter. Carol helped me learn how to understand what Olivia needed. She helped with soothing techniques, breastfeeding, all the crazy questions a new mom has. In my next pregnancy just 2 yrs later I found out I was expecting triplets. Carol was there from the beginning. She recommended books for me to read, counseled me on nutrition and supplements. When I had complications with gestational diabetes, she came and prepared special meals for me. She portioned them out so all I had to do was grab them. She is a wonderful cook. She drove me to my specialist appointments every week and on the way home would stop at my favorite hamburger place and bring it out to me so I could eat reclining in her car. She is full of love and wisdom and has been an invaluable resource for our family. We love her! Kristie K.
When I found out I was expecting twins it was a bit of a shock. I had a toddler and the thought of two more babies was a little overwhelming. I will forever be grateful for Carol’s help during this scary time. I felt comfortable with her from the first time I met her. Her calm nature soothed me during my time on bed rest and during my birth. She was always available to answer my questions, bring me something yummy to eat and just help with whatever I needed. I consider her not only my doula but also my friend. B. Sullivan
