Miss Cady McVay and her service has given me one of the greatest gifts I could ever ask for: a greater understanding of myself!  Her three month mentor process provided me with more information than I could have imagined about the female menstruation cycle, the meaning of various biological markers, the fluctuation of hormones, and how this all fits in to birth control. Cady has truly helped me to be an advocate for my own health. The process of tracking my cycle and drawing conclusions based on the various data that I collect on myself helps me to be an advocate for myself in a doctor or gynecology office, and helps me to communicate more clearly with doctors.  The tool of being able to understand your biological markers is a relevant skill that will stay with you through any and all stages of your life- from fertility understanding and hormone imbalances to trying to avoid or generate a pregnancy.  Further, Cady has helped me to understand the relevance and importance of the role of Doulas for women.  By understanding my own hormone fluctuations and the effects of those fluctuations, I am able to empathize with women who are going through the various stages of pregnancy: abortion, fertility, miscarriage, birth, post-partum.  I am continuously impressed with Cady's breadth of knowledge, her patience, thoroughness, and thoughtfulness, and ability to articulate these topics in a way that generates relatability and understanding.  Cady was and remains to be available to answer questions that I have throughout my learning process.  She is extremely approachable and made me feel comfortable to ask questions that may seem too personal - because really, at the end of the day, nothing should be out of the question when it comes to gaining a true understanding of your body and health. I feel that the tools that I have learned and my shifted perspective on female health will serve me for the rest of my life!
