Amy Green

We are exceptionally happy with Cassie's services as a birth doula. She met with us multiple times before the birth and provided a wealth of information, reassurance, and insight. We wanted a natural unmedicated birth and Cassie helped us with suggestions for labor preparations. I ended up having an 80 hour labor, including 70 hours at home. Cassie supported us throughout the emotional and trying experience via phone text and in person. She encouraged natural pain management techniques as well as ways to get rest during the very long process. Once admitted to the hospital Cassie provided verbal reassurance, physical support and a calm manner. She help my husband and I with positioning and movement to aid in the repositioning of the baby. I decided to get an epidural after transition and Cassie was supportive through my change in plan, she was not phased or disappointed in my decision which helped me get the rest I needed and avoid a cesarean. Cassie supported both my husband and I through the process. During delivery Cassie even took photos per my request and documented the whole process beautifully. We would highly recommend Cassie services for anyone looking for an exceptional doula. ~Amy & Bryan
