“Cailey attended our son’s birth in July 2020 and was AMAZING! We had such a positive experience with her and were so grateful for her support.
We met with Cailey twice prior to delivery, and she was extremely warm, knowledgeable, and helpful. She helped us create a visual birth plan, which ended up being a great resource to use with my provider when discussing birth options. She was also very supportive of my desire to have an unmedicated labor and delivery and educated us on pain management options.
During my actual labor, Cailey came to our house while I was in active labor and was an amazing support so that we didn’t have to be at the hospital any longer than we wanted. She coached my husband in different ways to provide pain relief using counter-pressure, which was so helpful during painful contractions. She also helped us decide when it was time to leave our house and go to the hospital.
Once we were at the hospital, Cailey helped ensure we were able to have the type of birth experience we wanted by reminding us of our birth plan. This was really helpful in the moment since it was hard to remember everything while I was laboring! She also suggested different positions to labor in, which really helped speed up my labor and keep things going. She stayed extremely positive and calm during the entire labor and made sure that I was hydrated. She also helped create a calm environment conducive to laboring, including essential oils, music, and dim lights. All of these things helped my labor progress and helped me stay calm and positive throughout my labor.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed having Cailey present at our son’s birth. She was a wonderful resource and has so much knowledge and compassion to share. I HIGHLY recommend Cailey to anyone looking for a calm and constant presence at their birth!“
