Wonderful Holistic services, loads of knowledge and so much passion as a Doula!
I recently had Caylan as my Doula. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on August 22 2017. Caylan was incredible from the first time I met with her. Her passionate and sensitive nature were evident within minutes of meeting her. She asked many questions and took notes to get a feel for what I wanted for my birth. Caylan went above and beyond the typical doula duties offering her continued support before, during and after care. She is an incredibly thoughtful person making sure every detail was looked after- from lavender scented face cloths, to lighting bees wax candles during my delivery. She made numerous house visits and planned a beach day with my family prior to my birth to get to know my other two children so that they would feel comfortable with her during this experience. She found out my eldest loves animals in particular kittens and made a special visit to our home to show them to my children. She always checked in with me before the labour asking how my day was and if I felt ok. She even made a special trip to Vernon from Revelstoke ( where I birthed in a cabin to have access to midwives) on her own time so she could get a feel for the space and know how to get there in a hurry if need be. She came to my shower, encapsulated my placenta, surprised me with her cord dried in the shape of a heart, took photography and helped behind the scenes while I was in labour. In labour she offered foot massages, back rubs and carbonated water(my favourite). What I love most about Caylan is her special ability to be self directed. She just seems to know where she needs to be and does what needs to be done without having to be told. As a mother particularly a birthing mother this skill is invaluable. It allowed me to focus on my birth. She took on things so my husband and children could be a part of the experience. I couldn’t have asked for anything better, I feel blessed for her to have been a part of it. Best of all I feel as though I not only had an amazing doula, I now have a new friend out of the experience. Please contact me if you have any questions
We saw Caylan yesterday because my husband and I hadn’t attended any birthing classes and she gave us a little crash course. Caylan was amazing and very knowledgeable about anything to do with birth and beyond. She took the time to explain everything in detail and took us that fear that some couples have before the birth. Emphasizing that women’s bodies are build to give birth, we now feel a lot more confident about the whole thing. I would definitely recommend Caylan as a Doula to anyone! Thanks Caylan!
