Cara Postpartum Doula
From cosmetology to surrogacy to postpartum doula care, Cara has been supporting women for 15 years. Through her calming nature, he seeks to reaffirm her client’s instincts and parenting decisions, hoping to provide them with the care and rest that they need to recover from birth and the confidence needed to take the best care of her child(ren).
Cara began studying with ProDoula in 2016 as a Postpartum Doula + Infant Care Specialist, and has built a large part of her experience on caring for families with multiples. She offers mainly overnight support to help families adjust and get the sleep and guidance they need during this major life transition.
As an IVF warrior through several Gestation Surrogacy journeys, Cara is able to lend an ear and hold a hand through all things infertility and IVF related.
Cara is also the COO for a non profit organization, Angel Babies, offering angel gown kits for families of babies born too soon, as well as memorial events for the loss community. She is going through bereavement training to give structure to the support she already offers to those going through a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infancy loss.

“The best decision we made for our family. Cara did overnights with us for our first born a few nights a week for 6 weeks and it was such a good mix of going through the sleepless nights rite of passage and getting some rest so I could be a good mom. I continued to BF so I did wake up when the baby fed but Cara did all the rest to get the baby down which gave me extra hours of sleep. She also helped me through some breastfeeding issues that came up and also helped us teach our baby some good sleep habits where she’s now sleeping through the night and going down pretty independently with no formal sleep training. Kristin also sends out really helpful newborn care and sleep information which was extremely helpful. I referenced it often. If you’re on the fence, try at least 1 night a week! So so so worth it."
