Christopher Matthews -
partner of Theresa, father of Eliza

Cassandra was called in to assist with our birth at a critical moment. Neither of us had met her before, but when she arrived, well before dawn, she was full of energy and exuded comfort and calm. From my perspective, as the father/partner/"coach," her presence was especially welcome, for at least a couple of reasons. First, she gave me a second wind by suggesting some new techniques I could use to help my partner (one of the first things she did was show me some acupressure points, infusing some new ideas and hopefulness at a moment when we were tired and a little discouraged). Second, she jumped into the role of caregiver, massaging my partner and communicating with her about the state of her mind and body--not only soothing her but also giving me a needed break. And this was all in her first half hour. From there on out she continued to prove an absolutely positive and calming presence, as well as a very hard worker, ready to share ideas and not at all put off by the occasional grumpiness of those she treated with such empathy and care. Ever since our daughter's birth we have remained very aware of how lucky we were that our terrific midwife called in the terrific Cassandra on that fateful night!
