Testimonial for Cady McVay

We hired Cady for the birth of our first baby.We could not have had a more positive experience! Our sessions leading up to birth and the resources shared made me confident in the birth experience we wanted and shattered any fears leaving us with only excitement! Cady was always very available and quick to respond. Once my water broke I had to go to the hospital as I was GBS positive. We kept her up to date with how things were progressing. Once we felt it was time for her to join us she made it there in record time! Right away she set the mood with essential oils and candles.She also worked her magic during contractions-massages, pressure points, etc.It was pure magic and I know my husband appreciated the extra help.I felt very confident that I would have an unmedicated childbirth but after we were getting close to 11pm and I had only progressed to 1 cm,I just couldn't fathom being in such pain the entire night.I didn't know how I was going to have the energy to push when the time came.It was getting obvious that this baby was not coming until the next morning. So I called it and asked for an epidural. I felt very defeated/guilty for not being able to stick to my plan but also a huge sense of relief at the same time. I never felt judged by Cady and felt that she was always on my side with any decision I made. I was able to get some much-needed rest and our baby joined us at 10:36 am the next morning-27 hours after my water breaking. Cady helped me push through every contraction and stuck around after the baby was born to help latch her. Cady joined us at our home a few days later and taught us so many helpful tips! We don't have any family support close by so this session was a huge help to us! Cannot thank her enough for everything! PS-the best part was when I started feeling queasy and Cady whipped out a puke bag just in time saving me from puking all over myself. That in itself was worth hiring a doula! haha my husband and I are still laughing about it!
