Do you believe in not rushing the process?

>>My guest today, Carly Hines, believes in this… and she’s on a mission to use education as a tool to empower women with their birthing experience.<< 

Carly is a birth consultant and licensed midwife. She serves as a resource to have in an expecting mom's back pocket throughout their pregnancy to answer questions and discuss options so they can feel in charge of their birth experience.

She also is their biggest supporter for them and their family as they navigate pregnancy and prepare for birth.

Further, she guides new moms through early postpartum as they rest and focus on their breathwork, reconnecting with their pelvic floor, proper nutrition, and creating a support system as they are adjusting to life as a new mom.

In this episode, we chat about alllllll of the things that makes Carly an incredible birth consultant, resource, advocate, guide, and educator in the birthing space. Ready to dive in? Click play >>HERE!<<

Born and raised in Washington, Carly knew that when she entered the world of birth work, she wanted to serve families in her home state. Always interested in health, she earned her undergrad in Community Health at Western WA University. Carly then gained my Midwifery education at Maternidad La Luz Midwifery School in El Paso, Texas in 2013, and returned home to test for my Washington State License. 

Carly has supported families at births in some capacity since 2011. She earned her Midwife License in 2015 and has attended hundreds of births around the state as a Licensed Midwife. Each time, Carly's in awe that she even get the privilege to be in the room when someone is birthing. She thinks birthing a child (or witnessing your child be born) is one of the most powerful, sacred, and life-changing experiences a person will go through.  

Carly has a sweet baby boy who was born in May 2021. After his birth, she decided to step away from the delivery room but knew she wanted to continue to support pregnant people and families. 

Carly's main goals as a birth consultant and midwife are to help families thrive during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. She believes that education is essential in achieving this. When we know our options, we can make informed decisions. In turn, this can lead to more positive, empowered birthing experiences. We should be in control of our birthing bodies, but if we do not feel well equipped, it can be a terrifying experience! Carly wants to help dispel the fear our culture has around birth and help women have more informed pregnancies.
