Bones. I saw your performance at the Capitola Theater in California
a year ago or maybe two by now. It has stayed with me as a work
of art that captures and expresses the essence of midwifery and
healing. Thank you for the work that you do."

"Singing the Bones" ... was absolutely INCREDIBLE
and one of the most moving performances I have ever been to! There
really aren't the words to describe all the feelings and emotions
that were brought up and aroused from (her) fabulous portrayal
of those 3 beautiful & complex women. Thank you for. . . this
piece which is so integral to human life, and of course a deep
passion for all of us who are committed to working with childbearing
women. The issues are so real and (the) presentation was so engaging..."

"I was unprepared for how captivating this one-woman
play was. I was quickly and completely absorbed. . . . Caitlin
was brilliant as she moved from one identity to another. . .
The play is an intense, eloquent exploration of ethical conflicts,

Penny Simkin, Childbirth Educator, Lecturer, and author of
Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Newborn: The Complete Guide
"Dear Caitlin, I've received your reviews! The critics
are fantastic and I absolutely agree with them! Your show was
