#51 Navigating Pregnancy & Birth as a Teen
Recorded Saturday, February 13, 2021 and our guest today is Caitlin Calonge (Ca-LAWN-gee).
Caitlin grew up in Cambridge and Everett, MA. She found out she was pregnant with her first baby the summer following high school graduation when she was 18 years old.
She jokes that she has “literally had almost every job in the world.” She has worked as a waitress, in sales, as a public housing coordinator, as a personal trainer, and even started her own business called “The Crunchy Home.” But she really found her passion when she began working as a doula, birth educator and home birth midwifery assistant after moving to South Florida.
Now back up in Massachusetts she placed her doula career on hold as she pursues a nursing degree at Bunker Hill Community College but she can’t wait to be back in the birth world soon!
She lives with her husband and three children (ages 13, 11 and 7) on the North Shore.
