Cass is awesome. I’ve known her for 6 years, and in that time I have witnessed her absolute passion for helping mamas start motherhood off with as much ease and support as possible. Not only is she a kick ass IBLCL, she’s also a doula who really works with you. Because of her passion for informed decision making in the birth room and beyond, I have spent the last several years educating myself on birthing options and breastfeeding. Because of this, and taking Bradley Method classes, I knew I wanted a natural birth. Both the classes and she empowered me to make a birth plan, and to know what steps I wanted to take, and when to take them, should it be that I needed to divert from my plan. My labor started 3 days before my son was actually born. For most of this time, Cass was with me.
It’s hard to put into words just how amazing this woman is. Strong, patient, kind, nurturing and gentle yet firm when needed. We asked Cass to be our doula because, well, she offered and we were strongly encouraged by our birthing class and midwives to have one.
