Hi, I’m Caryn Allen, certified childbirth educator, birth doula, and postpartum doula. I was born and raised in the Saint Louis, Missouri area but have called Utah my home since 2013. My husband and I met when he came to Missouri to do summer sales, and what started out as a summer romance turned into 14 years of marriage, 5 moves in 3 states, 4 children, 1 dog, and loads of fun. I enjoy board and card games, sewing, crocheting, movie watching, Dungeons and Dragons, and a good camping trip. I have dreams of one day living on a small farm with a variety of animals, doing birth work for animals and humans alike. I believe that birth is one of the most empowering and transformative experiences a woman can ever go through. How she chooses to give birth will affect her mind, body, and spirit for the rest of her life. I passionately believe that knowledge is power, and with that power comes the potential for truly wonderful birthing experiences. I became a birth worker to help women and their partners know and feel empowered in their choices, and to help them feel supported during the beautiful and intimate process of bringing a new life into the world.

Birth Doula Support: My role as your birth doula is to support you however you choose to give birth, helping you have the empowering and transformative birth experience all women deserve. I use my extensive knowledge and skills as a doula, childbirth educator, and mom of four to work alongside your partner and care provider to support you physically, emotionally, and educationally. Postpartum Doula Support:I am passionate about maternal mental health and helping new moms feel cared for and supported during those crucial weeks after baby is born. I will help with a variety of things including breastfeeding support, newborn care, meal preparation, light housework, running errands, caring for older children, or even holding the baby while you nap or shower. I want you to feel supported, not overwhelmed, during this time of transition and adjustment. Childbirth Education: 10 weeks of in-depth, all-inclusive childbirth education where you will learn everything you need to know about your pregnancy, labor and delivery, postpartum, newborn care, and breastfeeding. This class is for everyone; if you're wanting a natural birth or a medicated birth, or if you want a hospital, birth center, or home birth, we talk about it all!
