"Patty Dougherty has been a contractor for the County of San Mateo through the Human Resources Department for over a year. Ms. Dougherty has been serving as the instructor for the "Labor and Delivery" course offered to our County employees. Ms. Dougherty is an extremely skilled instructor with strong clinical and experiential foundation in pregnancy, labor, delivery and post-partum care.
Ms. Dougherty's interactive and didactic presentation style is extremely effective. In addition to educating her students regarding the medical components of childbirth, she also provides a "real world" perspective from her numerous years of experience as a doula.
Ms. Dougherty is a phenomenal presenter and educator with a warm, energetic and caring personality which shines right through. She has been a wonderful asset to our program here at the County."
