Cary is a champion of birth and constantly in awe of women and mothers.
Cary completed her CAPPA doula training, the only mindfulness-based training in NY, with Kristy Zadrozny (who was also Cary’s labor doula). She apprenticed under Kristy for a year in 2018 and has done over 100 hours of birth training courses including the 9 week Mindfulness Based Childbirth and Parenting Course. Cary is also a certified Thai Massage therapist (Shivagakomarpaj Old Medicine Hospital ) and brings her strong and intuitive hands to every birth.
After having two wonderful home births, Cary is particularly committed to erasing the stigma of birthing at home. However, she is equally committed to nonjudgmental support wherever her clients chose to labor. She is also a breastfeeding activist and advocate.
Cary does not see birth only as a medical procedure (even when medical procedures must be used); she views birth as a life event that can highlight the natural strengths that we all possess as women and as people!
Cary is an exceptionally loving, enthusiastic free spirit. She is committed to helping women realize how important it is to just BE yourself in the birth process—and teaches them how to do that. She believes and encourages mothers to be fully themselves so they can let go in order to let the baby out.
Cary is also a single mom who recognizes the pain of heartbreak and trauma; she is able to meet women where they are with empathy and respect and supports other women with unique family structures, or who are birthing on their own, to do the same. Cary knows that everything and anything can come up in birth; she is uniquely prepared to emotionally support whatever arises, however wild.
And for you water-birthers: Cary will even get in the pool with you and moo like a cow if that’s what is going to allow you to relax and laugh. We can dance, sing, or just sit in silence. Cary is also an actress and comedian and knows the power and magic laughter holds and of course – timing is everything.
