I believe knowledge is power! I love to spread knowledge and enjoy educating new parents and parents-to-be about their different options as well as the current best practices in baby care. I understand the pressures that busy parents face and enjoy supporting all the different members of the growing families that I work with.
We trust Catherine 100% — so much so that we’ve left our daughter with her for several nights. Although Catherine has her JD and a master’s degree, she has chosen to be a doula. If this doesn’t speak to how much Catherine loves what she does, I don’t know what would! She treats our daughter like her own and we couldn’t be more grateful to have her in our lives.
