Sara Alleman

Catherine supported myself and my husband for the vbac birth of our daughter. She gave us great support and information prior to labor, was prompt getting to the hospital, and stayed the entire night for my labor and then some! She supported us both throughout the night, making everything less stressful for everyone, and made sure we were all settled with our new baby before she left. She provided a follow up visit at our home with some information and advice, and just a general sense of personal investment and care for us and our expanding family. We felt she really enjoys her work and cares anout her clients. I would gladly use her services again, and would recommend her to family and friends!
