Kristi is continuing her studies to receive a Bachelor of Science in Midwifery (BSM). Since she is a student midwife she has chosen not to certify with a doula organization at this time. This allows her to meet each one of her client's needs as an independent, non-affiliated birth doula. Kristi is currently working towards certification in Childbirth Education and Lactation support to help families during antenatal care, child birth, and postpartum care.

Kristi was an amazing doula. I knew early on in my pregnancy that I was going to need extra support, and I couldn't imagine any one else being there with me other than Kristi. She was very good about honoring and respecting my wishes, and was especially knowledgable about positioning during labor. She was very prompt about responding to phone calls and emails, and was very reliable. I attribute my labor progression to her positioning suggestions. She was also a huge help to my fiance, as she made sure to involve him in the labor process, and helped him feel more confident about helping me. I would never have gotten through the horrendous back labor without her! When I tell my birth story, I am always proud to include Kristi in that story. I can't recommend her enough.
