Cathleen provided excellent training via the Bradley Birth classes as well as support throughout my labor and birth. She was available throughout my pregnancy via email for any questions I had, and answered the phone when I called at 2am in labor. She came to my home and guided my husband and I through the Bradley methods that helped me cope with contractions and went with us to the hospital where she helped make sure my preferences were honored. Her calming presence and guided visualizations helped me work through the pain and focus on the end result. Cathleen stayed with us until baby had successfully latched and made sure we were resting comfortably before leaving. I would not hesitate to hire Cathleen for my next birth - her preparation and support throughout the process enabled me to have exactly the birth experience I had hoped for. I would recommend Cathleen to anyone considering childbirth classes or doula services.
