Testimonial for Cady McVay

I feel fortunate to be someone who had their first birth go more or less as planned and believe that is in large part to the support provided by Cady and Alaska. The prenatal classes were helpful in preparing me and my husband not only for the birth, but also for the time after the baby was here. On the day Rose was born, both Cady and Alaska were instrumental in all of the decisions that eventually led to our trip to the hospital. I labored at home for 15 hours, which was far longer than I likely would have been able to without their support. At the hospital, Cady was the calming presence I needed to reassure me that everything was going to plan and going to be okay. While I was in transition, it all became very overwhelming, but Cady reminded me that the baby and I were safe, and used her vast array of tips and tricks to keep us on track. Once I was 10 centimeters, the baby’s heart rate started dropping occasionally, and our provider recommended the use of a vacuum to help her out. Cady reminded us that we could take time to ask questions, and our provider was very patient with us. Only three hours after getting to the hospital, the baby was here. Cady gave me a magical concoction - applesauce - to help recover, and it was exactly what I needed. A few days after we were home, Cady came to check on us and help with breastfeeding, showing us how to use the pump and the baby carrier. Cady, I am so grateful for your support! We hope to work with you and Alaska for Baby #2!
