The Caring Doula Welcomes You
As a certified postpartum doula, I'm here to help Chicago families during one of their most vulnerable times. I can offer daytime support and guidance from the moment you arrive home until 12 weeks after birth. I can care for your newborn, offer tips for safe sleep and better naps, prep meals, provide instructions on baby wearing and bottle feeding, and I can answer questions about postpartum recovery. I can also provide much-needed emotional and informational support to both the birthing parent and their partner. Bringing a tiny human into the world can be daunting, but I'm here to make that transition a little easier.
Hi, I'm Carrie!
I've supported Chicago families in their home since 2009, providing both childcare and project management services. The transition to postpartum doula came about after I noticed the lack of support and care many parents feel after birth. There was a need for warm, knowledgeable, shame-free guidance and I knew I could fill that role. I'm certified through DONA International, and I provide thoughtful, reliable, personalized care.
I take your family's health seriously, which is why I'm fully vaccinated and boosted, and I've received the Tdap vaccine. I get a yearly flu shot and I keep my CPR certification updated.
"Carrie is a gem. She is phenomenal with babies and moms, in a way that feels special, even for a postpartum doula. She's observant, proactive, and calming. When Carrie is around, I feel like I can breathe. As a new mom, it's been hard for me to identify and articulate my own needs. Carrie always asks the right questions and sees what I don't say."
