Cathy is clearly experienced, well trained and knowledgeable. But the thing that amazed me the most about her, was how committed and genuinely interested she was in the whole process. (At times I was feeling guilty that she was even more excited than I was at the scans of our first baby). You could be forgiven for forgetting that this is actually a job for her.
My wife and I felt like we could ask Cathy anything and contact her if we felt unsure about anything. I doubt that many Doctors at her level would give a direct communication line 24/7 like she did for us. This really helped ease our minds throughout the entire pregnancy.
She never rushed any of our appointments (even if she was running late because of a delivery beforehand), explained everything competently, and always gave us a chance to ask any questions. When it was showtime, Cathy certainly earned her keep. Fantastic guidance for my wife as to when to push/how hard to push etc. If I had to use one word to describe her work during the birth it would be "masterful".
