Testimonial for Cady McVay

You know when you meet someone and you right away know they are a fit for you?  That was the experience I had during the initial consultation with Cady. 

I was exploring a doula for my 3rd baby.  I had a successful VBAC for my 2nd baby using no medication (including no epidural!) and was determined to repeat that for my 3rd baby.  Knowing a non-medicated VBAC is no easy feat, I was looking for a doula for mental and physical support.  Cady was exactly that. 

Since our first virtual consultation, she was warm, a good listener and demonstrated confidence in her practice.  After the call, I knew I wanted to work together on my 3rd labor and 2nd VBAC experience.  Throughout the pregnancy journey, Cady was very resourceful and sent along helpful videos/articles to prepare me both mentally and physically for the big day.  She was professional, organized and incredibly fast in responding (something important as often times you are in a vulnerable state leading up to labor).

I was so confident in Cady that I actually pushed out my planned day of trying natural induction remedies as there was a chance it could conflict with another labor Cady had.  Of course, Cady had already lined me up with her back-up doula ‘just in case’ (who was also warm and fab by the way!) but because of the historical knowledge I had built up with Cady over the past 5 months, I knew I wanted her support.    

On the day of, early-labor was slow, but she was patient and stayed with me.  When I transitioned into active labor things progressed quickly and she provided me the physical support (counter-pressure during the contractions) and the emotional coaching that I needed to hear.  All in all, Cady was who I needed by my side, and in the delivery room she was instrumental for myself, my husband, and my baby :)  I would emphatically refer Cady to anyone looking for a doula!
