Carolyn is a lovely addition to our team! She always has the brightest smile and truly cares about the families she works with. After many years of being a nanny, babysitting, working in daycare, and raising her own children the path of becoming a doula is a perfect fit! So let’s learn more about Carolyn!
Tell us about your family:
I’m married to my husband Case and we have 2 young sons, Jaxson and Gavin. We also have a dog and 2 cats!
Give us 3 words that describe you:
Empathetic. Supportive. Kind.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Relaxing with my family, we like to go outside and play, having game night and snuggling up to watch movies.
What is your philosophy for parenting &
supporting families through their transition?
Everyone is trying to be the best parent they can be. I view all parents in the best light and bring nothing but non-judgmental support to the table when working with families. My goal is to help provide some relief to families in an amazing time that can be a very overwhelming, beautiful, exhausting, and an emotional roller-coaster.
What is your favorite vacation?
My family LOVES to go camping and going down rivers in Northern Michigan.
What is your best advice for new/expecting families?
Try to go in with no expectations of what kind of parent you think you or your partner will be, how you think your baby will be, or rushing how soon you think they should be doing something. Always follow your gut, parental intuition is a POWERFUL thing. Ask for advice if you need help or opinions and brush them off if they’re unsolicited or are not helpful.
If we turned on the radio in your car, what would we hear?
Typically Rock music!
