Hi I'm Cara
Hi! I'm Cara (she/her). I've been helping people prepare for and navigate deeply transformative and unfamiliar experiences for nearly two decades. I had a successful career leading advocacy programs for survivors of trauma in the nonprofit sector until the birth of my first child. In the past nearly ten years since then I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of pregnant people as a Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Prenatal Yoga Teacher.Learn More About Me
