My name is Caroline I am a Happy mom of 3 children,2 girls( Mathilde 17) (Lucie 13)and a boy( Clarence 14 )

I moved in America 6 years ago with my family, I am originally from France ( Paris).

It was very challenging for me to ''re start'' my life ,in a new country, learn a new language a new culture,and get a doula certification .

but I did it!

Becoming a doula is a choice to dedicate my time and energy to assist women and families in one of the most beautiful and important events in life: birth

I am offering a lot of services

haptonomy ,hypnobirthing, Lamaze, baby's firt massage,and more....

In my free time I enjoy cooking, baking, hiking, skiing, gardening, assisting my family!









What is a DOULA?



The word "doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.

Studies have shown that when doulas attend birth, labors are shorter with fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily.

A Birth Doula

  • Recognizes birth as a key experience the mother will remember all her life
  • Understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor
  • Assists the woman in preparing for and carrying out her plans for birth
  • Stays with the woman throughout the labor
  • Provides emotional support, physical comfort measures and an objective viewpoint, as well as helping the woman get the information she needs to make informed decisions
  • Facilitates communication between the laboring woman, her partner and her clinical care providers
  • Perceives her role as nurturing and protecting the woman's memory of the birth experience
  • Allows the woman's partner to participate at his/her comfort level

A birth doula certified by DONA International is designated by the initials CD(DONA).

Research evidence shows that the quality services of a postpartum doula can ease the transition that comes with the addition of a baby to a family, improve parental satisfaction and reduce the risk of mood disorders.

Haptonomy by French doula Caroline Bahadourian



prenatal haptonomy from France now in Florida 

Haptonomy is defined as the “Science of Affectivity”, with a framework put together by Frans Veldman 

Haptonomy defines several ways of existing towards the world and relating to others. Most of us exist within a rational mode of existence; the goal of Haptonomy is to allow any individual to reach an affective mode of existence, one that allows full autonomy to cope with all the difficult avenues of life, as well as be present and available for the more enjoyable ones. It’s a mode of existence that enlightens our existing rational attributes. This is done through a work that includes integration and affective confirmation (a form of intrinsic, core experienced emotional validation) and set of skills that incorporate a form of affective contact.

Haptonomy is usually most known in mainland Europe (primarily in France, followed by Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Germany) within the context of pregnancy accompaniment, and has also applications in nursing, medical science, physical manipulation such as chiropraxy, counselling and psychology, and palliative care.

you can start haptonomy as early at 12 weeks

Water Birth


"People never sing...except in the bathroom. Birthing women also make their natural sounds next to running bath water. There is something about the power of water. People are drawn to water, spas, and sacred streams. Women in labor are drawn to water, too."- Michel Odent, MD.

Birthing in water is every womens right. With the right tools, research, and prenatal care all women can accomplish this. My wish and goal is to help provide one of these tools for your family to help create your sacred space on your Birth Day.

      .Benefits for mom

  • Pain relief:  warm water immersion decreases secretion of stress-related hormones (noradrenaline &  catecholamines) associated with fear and anxiety; increases production of endorphins—the body’s natural pain killers.  Mom is able to attain a deeper state of relaxation and conserve her energy.  Buoyancy in water reduces effects of gravity and creates weightlessness; less abdominal pressure promotes more efficient uterine contractions.
  • Decreases hypertension and reduces edema:  mild vasodilation occurs thus decreasing maternal BP
  • Increases oxygenation to uterus; no external compression of inferior vena cava; promotes better blood circulation and supply to the uterus/placenta improving fetal oxygenation. 
  • Facilitates a dysfunctional labor; stimulates effective dilation of the cervix.   Provides greater mobility for maternal  positioning during labor and birth.
  • Reduces perineal/cervical injuries.  The warm water softens the vagina, vulva and perineum making the tissues more supple and able to stretch gradually.
  • Best water temperature:  86-96°F induces mild hypothermia; intensifies uterine blood flow; makes glycogen reserves available and activates insulin receptors in the mom thus is beneficial for diabetic moms.  
  • Shortens length of labor.  
  • Improves placental blood flow; increases efficiency of uterine contractions which assists in efficient placental separation; reduces postpartum hemorrhage.
  • VBAC:  lessens danger of rupture; safer for scar; uterus has better blood supply.
  • Empowers mother:  when mom is awake, aware and in “control” of her birthing experience it becomes a source of great  personal strength and enriches her life forever.


       .Benefits for Baby

  • Gentler transition from maternal womb to external “womb” of water with less trauma at birth
  • Enhances fetal oxygenation.  Improved blood flow to baby due to better blood circulation in mother
  • Best water temperature:  86-96°F helps regulate fetal heart rate; protects against hemorrhagic disease of the newborn  by normalizing clotting response; stabilizes primitive reflex responses and activates fetal movements.
  • Water mitigates the shock and sensory overload to the newborn that are so often an inextricable part of “dry-land” birth

       .Benefits for family

  • Greater involvement of the father—because mom’s pain and stress is greatly reduced, fathers take a more active role in the birthing process.
  • Enhanced family relationships—involvement of father creates a greater family bond
  • Better parent-child interactions—a mom who has an empowering birth experience will have a positive association to the baby; and a baby who experiences a non-traumatic, painless, gentle birth will have a positive association to the parent.  
  • The birth experience is one of several causal factors in determining the kind of personality an individual manifests later in life.  (The Calif. Commission on Crime Control & Violence Prevention spent two years studying the root causes of crime.  It found that gentle birth, more loving families and less violence on television are three major factors that curb violent crime.  The Commission said that “a positive birth experience, one that is gentle, loving and non-traumatic, increases the likelihood of healthy child development and less violent behavior.”)

It takes a village to raise a child, as it does to give birth to a healthy baby. So let me express my deepest gratitude to all the wonderful practitioners who cared for me during my pregnancy and birth: the Midwives at Norwalk Hospital (Sara Church), who cared for me during my first pregnancy and well into my second; Circle for Life Midwifery, who took me in during my third trimester and helped me have the natural birth I'd been hoping for; Caroline Doula Nine Months who gave me wonderful support before and during labor, I'm not sure how I would have done it without her; and HypnoBirthing of CT for teaching me great techniques for a calmer birth.

The Benefits of Delayed cord clamping

Delayed cord clamping, also known as ‘optimal cord clamping’, is becoming more popular due to the many benefits this simple practice can do for your baby.

Published studies suggests delaying cord clamping results in healthier blood and iron levels in babies.

When your baby is born – premature or full term – only about 2/3rd of his/her blood is in its body with a 1/3rd remaining in the umbilical cord and placenta. It is during the mother’s third stage of labor (lasting from delivery of baby to delivery of placenta) that the cord actively pumps this iron-rich, oxygen-rich, and stem-cell-rich blood into baby. Just 3 minutes after birth, more than 90% of baby’s blood transfusion is complete!

Immediate cord clamping is a medical intervention with NO proven benefits.

If you live in the U.S. or Europe, your baby will often not receive this cord blood because its umbilical cord is cut before baby has received all its blood. The result is a baby is deprived of precious early-life resources that could allow him or her to flourish. Did you know that one third of your baby’s blood is outside of its body at the moment of birth?

Support your baby’s developing immune system and ability to resist infection. 

If the cord is clamped too soon (before it stops pumping) your child misses out on 60% of its red blood cells, additional iron, stem cells, white blood cells, and much more. These are the same ingredients that support your baby’s developing healthy bodily functions, intelligence, resistance to infection – and much more.

Wait just 90 seconds to clamp your baby’s cord!

Delayed cord clamping means waiting at least 90 seconds after baby’s birth before clamping and cutting the umbilical cord. During this time, blood continues to pulse from placenta to baby until naturally stopping about 3 minutes after birth. This transfer of blood from placenta to baby is most effective if baby is placed on mother’s lower belly.

Benefits of Delayed Cord Clamping

  • Gives baby the oxygen it needs immediately at birth
  • Allows 4-8 teaspoons more blood to pulse from the placenta to baby
  • Gives baby an additional 30 to 35 mg of iron to lower risk of anemia
  • Promotes a healthy neonatal cardiopulmonary transition
  • Prevents iron deficiency at a critical time in brain development
  • Reduces birth asphyxia (inadequate oxygen to brain) and cerebral palsy.
  • Gives baby the red and white cells it needs for optimal health
  • Provides newborn with a rich supply of stem cells*
  • Helps a sick baby achieve better outcomes
  • Little to no apparent risk to mother or baby

*Stem cells play an essential role in developing immune, respiratory, cardiovascular, and central nervous systems. The concentration of stem cells in fetal blood is higher than at any other time of life! When a baby’s cord is immediately clamped, 1/3rd of these critical cells remain in the placenta, NOT your baby.

History of Immediate Cord Clamping

Immediately clamping the umbilical cord was popularized in 1913 as one of three pillars of active management of the third stage of labor. While this intervention began in the West, we exported this technique to developing nations around the world. Today, in some low-income countries as many as 95% of delivery clinicians surveyed practice immediate cord clamping. Immediate cord clamping results in up to 10x the risk of developing iron deficiency anemia.

 The WHO no longer recommends immediate cord clamping.

Not only have people around the world traditionally waited for the cord to stop pulsing until the 20th century innovation, every other mammal studied instinctively waits for cord to stop pulsing.

Special Situations

If a newborn is sick at birth, one of the first things they often receive in NICU is fluid support (about 4-8 teaspoons of normal saline or blood. Yet that is exactly what’s left behind in the placenta when a cord is immediately clamped—about 2 tablespoons of whole blood. Therefore, it can sometimes be beneficial for your baby to let nature do its own transfusing!

If a baby is born in distress and needs resuscitation, delaying cord clamping may need to take a back seat. Babies in distress need immediate attention and it may not be practical to care for them with the cord attached. As more is learned about the benefits of delayed clamping, pediatricians may adjust protocols to do some procedures at bedside, allowing cord to remain attached. If the cord must be clamped immediately, you can make up for the lost iron by giving baby an iron supplement, or feeding her iron-rich foods, when she is ready for solids.

 Unless there is a strong reason to do otherwise, it is best to

WAIT until your baby’s cord stops actively pumping fetal blood.

Most midwives/doctors will agree to delay cord clamping as long as they know ahead of time that this is what you want. It is a good idea to request delayed cord clamping in bold in your birth plan and discuss it with the attending nurses at your birth.
