a bit about me
& why I became a Doula...
My name is Caty Bilton. I am a Certified BEST Doula serving Dallas, Fort Worth and all the cities in between. I am the proud wife to Kyle Bilton and momma to Audrey (4) and Presley (1). I have a passion for birth, breastfeeding, and babies.
As a Doula, I am there to help facilitate conversations and build bridges between an expectant parent, their partner, and health care team. I am there to support a laboring individual and their partner both physically and emotionally before, during, and after labor.
My first birth was difficult and traumatic. It ultimately ended in an “emergency c-section” which devastated me. After looking back on everything that took place, I realized every decision my provider led me to make set me up for failure. After finding out I was pregnant with my second, I knew I wanted to attempt a VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarian). I put together an excellent birth team which included a Doula and a team of midwives. My VBAC went perfectly thanks in huge part to my Doula. She was there to support me during my 36 hour labor (yeah, exhausting). After seeing the difference she made during my birth, I knew I wanted to make that same difference for other women.
