Testimonial for Cathleen Holt

Cathleen was an encouraging and knowledgable source of support and encouragement before, during, and after the birth of our first child.  I highly recommend her as a doula and recommend her Bradley Method classes as well.  As soon as I became pregnant I knew that I wanted a natural birth at a birth center and was eager to find a doula and childbirth class that would help me feel more prepared and confident.  I ended up having the positive and rewarding natural birth I had hoped for and feel Cathleen's Bradley Method classes in addition to her presence at the birth as our doula helped make that happen.  We loved Cathleen's classes.  Each class was a great time for my husband and I to connect, discuss, and prepare for the upcoming birth.  When our schedules seemed to make signing up for a class impossible, Cathleen worked with us to create a combination of private and group classes that worked for us.  She was very flexible and generous with her time offering one-on-one makeup classes for us when necessary.  From the moment I had signs of early labor, Cathleen was in constant contact with us providing guidance and advice.  When labor seemed stalled, she recommended a series of positions that were incredibly effective.  As labor progressed, Cathleen met us at the birth center and provided me with much appreciated pain coping techniques- she helped guide my breathing, used massage, rebozo, and aromatherapy- all which I found very helpful.  Most of all, she was a calming presence constantly reminding me that I could do it.  I wanted my husband to be my primary support person and Cathleen did an incredible job of helping him to help me, which I really valued.  Cathleen is passionate, caring, and knowledgable- we can't recommend her enough!
