We hired Caitlin Philips as our doula (not even sure she is certified now), my husband and I found her extremely unprofessional.In summary- we signed a simple contract with her that stated we paid her $900, and the balance of $1000 due on May 1st. I received an email from her on April 17th, stating we owed her the balance on April 15th, and she could no longer assist us unless we completed our payment of $1000. This was news to us, our contract did not state this, nor did we receive any communication about a Payment Date of April 15th.”I tried to contact her via email, text, Facebook about this discrepancy but she text me saying she was only willing to talk on the phone. Caitlin also told us to not include her name on our birth plan for the hospitals, as according to her they dislike her at the hospitals and she has been sued before in the past. I have a friend who is an attorney who did a court search on her, and found Caitlin has tried to sue 2 clients, and was very aggressive about it. I just dont want other women to go through this, it has been a really negative energy for me, and I am about to give birth.I am aslo concerned she will not follow HIPPA and kept confidentiality regarding my personal information. Caitlin showed me very intimate pictures of another womans birth, without her permission, and I happen to know the couple she showed me. Once this was realized Caitlin asked me to not say anything regarding thisI hope there can be something done, as it is just very unprofessional.
