Caitlyn Westlake Newborn Care Specialist + Postpartum Doula

Caitlyn Westlake

Caitlyn has been serving families in various roles since 2011. She has devoted her time to continuous learning about pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period in order to best serve the families she works with. Her time has been spent as a doula, midwifery student, and newborn care specialist. The various roles she has taken on have always been centered around supporting women and families during times of growth and transition. These delicate times require support, reassurance, and the knowledge to provide further educational resources when needed.

Working with families during the fourth trimester has been a central focus of her time and continuing education. Once the baby is home, support can feel limited, but Caitlyn is adamant that families feel supported and respected during this time.

Caitlyn’s greatest value to families is her passion and ability to work diligently to meet their individual needs and her desire to see families thrive.
