Theresa Braunschneider -
first baby, home birth

Cassandra provides amazing labor support!  Her presence at my daughter’s birth was a surprise and a gift.  When my midwife’s regular assistant came down with the flu during my labor, Cassandra agreed at the last minute to come in her place, arriving at our house in the wee hours of the morning full of positive energy.  Though we had never met her, my partner and I immediately trusted her completely.  She was a calming and compassionate presence throughout the especially challenging final hours of my long labor, and she never ran out of good suggestions and support techniques (her knowledge of acupressure was especially welcome).  She was unflaggingly cheerful and patient, no matter how abrupt or grumpy I was.  And she proved herself to be very strong!  With almost 24 hours of active labor and 3 hours of strenuous pushing, I demanded a lot from my labor support team, and Cassandra was an invaluable, seemingly tireless helper.  Unsurprisingly, her support did not end with the birth.  She stayed around for hours helping clean up and getting us started on swaddling and breastfeeding.  We now show our daughter pictures from the birth and tell her how lucky she is that Cassandra is one of the first people she ever met!
