Whenever I told anyone about Casey, I told them that she was as close as I could come to hiring myself as a doula. Sometimes, don't you feel like you are the only person you can trust to do a job, and you wish you could clone yourself to take care of business? I felt like I was able to "clone myself" in the form of Casey. She felt like an extension of myself; she held space for exactly what I wanted and needed and was an invaluable part of my birth experience. I find it hard to even try to find the words to detail how seamlessly I felt we worked together because everything just felt so natural and effortless in working with her. She anticipated my and my partern's every need, she was calm and supportive, she was level-headed yet filled with joy and humor, she worked perfectly with my midwives, she was flexible and kind, she was well-prepared for everything that happened.... and she continues to be attentive and available and accessible post-partum. I cannot say enough about how well she cared for me and my family throughout labour and birth. We love you, Casey!

Casey was an incredible support throughout my pregnancy and birthing journey. My birth did not go as planned and I ended up being induced, 44 hours of labor and a c-section. Casey was by my side the entire time. Giving me the confidence I needed to keep trying and the information and support I needed when it was time to accept the interventions. She went above and beyond all of my expectations and her post partum visits were incredibly helpful. I was especially thrilled with Casey's interactions with my husband. He was reluctant to have a doula because he thought it would take away from his role. However at the prenatal visit Casey reassured him about his role and during the birth she guided him in ways to comfort me. Afterwards he was so happy we had Casey to help him support me. I strongly recommend Casey. My birth experience would have been much worse without her love and support.

We are from Denmark and not familiar with the absence of midwives at certain hospitals, so we quickly decided to find a doula to help us out with the delivery of our son. Needless to say, Casey was such a big help to both me and my husband. My delivery was very long and there were plenty of times where I don’t think I would have kept going had it not been for Casey and her massive support. Not only is Casey a very competent and knowledgeable aid, she is also extremely patient and a very warm and gentle spirit. What she brings to the hard and at times seemingly impossible task of pushing out a human being, is not something anyone can just learn. Her ascribed abilities surpass all her achieved skillsets alone. She is absolutely wonderful and a priceless partner to have in your corner, when you are at your most vulnerable. So much happens when you are in the process of giving birth. You are in your own world and your guards are down, for a good reason. It is hard to advocate and screen information, or even make crucial decisions, and I know that she made the travel a much easier and more comforting journey for all of us. Casey intuitively used the compass we gave her, and navigated us to shore. Midwives or not, I will not think twice about having her right next to me again, should there be another go-around.

Casey was great!! She was extremely helpful in providing thoughtful instruction on: baby wearing, breastfeeding, bottle feeding, developmental landmarks, car seat installation, and general advice. If not for her, I don't think I would have ever figured out the ergobaby!!! She was also just a great listener.... Whenever I had concerns or questions, she'd ease my worries with research/examples of how my struggles were not uncommon. For example, when my LO was still jaundiced a week later, she really helped ease my anxiety and convince me the baby would be ok. 

 

She also did a fantastic job helping around the house so I could just *relax*. At her own suggestion, she prepared several meals for us which were a lifesaver!! I was beginning to brine prior to her help given my consumption of ramen. 

 

Casey was a phenominal doula and amazing friend during the birth of our LO. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.
