Having Christina as our doula gave us such peace of mind. It made our first delivery experience so great! She was able to coach me through it in a way my partner would have found difficult and kept me super motivated. Her encouragement made me feel like a rockstar and she helped me have the natural labor experience I was hoping for! She took care of us so well and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Being a first time mom, it was overwhelming trying to find a doula. Thankfully, I found Christina. She was so supportive and kind throughout my pregnancy and was always checking in on me. She always answered my questions and gave me helpful suggestions. She really helped ease my mind and prepare for labor. When the big day came, Christina was there every step of the way. I could not have imagined a more positive birth experience, and I owe much of that to Christina. She is an amazing doula and person, and we are so grateful for having her be a part of our journey to become parents. She is truly a gem!

Christina is absolutely amazing! She set the bar for my first Doula experience. I had a very long unplanned induction and she was there every step of the way. Because my son was coming a little early, I had never met Christina in person before the birth. She has a presence that makes you feel like you’ve been friends forever, which is wonderful when trusting someone to support you during a very vulnerable time. She somehow knew what I needed before I did...I can’t recommend her highly enough!

I am so thankful I found Belly to Cradle, LLC! The staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and so kind. I used their doula services with Christina Brown and she was spectacular! She was with my husband and I the whole process of our pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Christina was always available if I had to call or text with any questions or concerns throughout my pregnancy- and the peace of mind that provided was so important to a first time mamma. During labor and delivery Christina was by my side helping me get through it mentally and helping keep me calm and comfortable physically. Christina has been fantastic and I  highly recommend her doula services!

Hiring a doula for my first birth was the best decision. From birth education to lactation education to the actual birth, we were supported and empowered each step of the way. Christina was amazing! BTC rocks!

Phenomenal services!! I contacted Christina for her Doula services last minute and she was very happy to help. Thanks to her I was able to enjoy, yes enjoy, my labor and delivery experience. She made sure to include my husband in aiding me which was something I really wanted. I hope she’s still a Doula when we have our next child!!!

I highly recommend Christina because she was very kind and supportive during my birth. This was my fourth baby but I still wanted a doula. I had an unmedicated birth to a large baby and she was such a help during delivery and especially during the pushing phase of birth. She is very knowledgeable and does a great job. She helped me so much with the Rebozo technique.

Christina was absolutley amazing and I couldn’t be happier with her as my Doula! She is a kind and very caring person and helped me through the best and most difficult journey I have experienced. She is a phenomenal doula and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a doula. She was very attentive to my every need as well as some needs that I didn’t know I had! She was always one step ahead which made my experience such a great one! She has a very kind and calm personality and helped to keep me calm relaxed during my birth. She goes above and beyond in everything she does and I am forever grateful for her!

I cannot say enough positive things about Belly to Cradle. When searching for a Doula, Amber not only responded immediately to my inquiry, she instantly calmed my fears as a first time mom. We opted to do the childbirth education classes with Amber and received invaluable information that made us feel prepared to welcome our child. We successfully employed several of the techniques Amber taught us during labor. We also attended the breastfeeding class with Kendall prior to delivery which also helped us feel ready to tackle breastfeeding. We chose Christina as our Doula and she could not have been more amazing. She checked in on me throughout my pregnancy and was an absolute rockstar during labor and delivery. My birth experience was so positive and I attribute that to Christina. She helped keep me calm, knew when to change positions, offered massages and other tools to enable me to labor naturally as I had envisioned. She was a great support to both me and my husband throughout delivery and afterwards. We've also received excellent lactation support from Allegra since we've been home. She has visited us at home and has also been so responsive via phone/text. Belly to Cradle is simply amazing! Thank you to to everyone for helping us welcome our little miracle baby in the most wonderful way!

This was my second birth, and I'd never had any experience with a doula before. I was hoping to have a successful VBAC and wanted someone to act as a birth coach to get me through it and to teach my husband some pressure techniques for pain relief. Christina Brown was awesome -- I couldn't have asked for the whole experience to go any better than it did and I couldn't have gotten through it on my own without her. She offered up lots of resources and was always available when needed. Additionally, lactation consultant Kendall was great as well -- particularly in providing resources for my son's tongue tie revision, which was causing breastfeeding difficulties initially. I'm so grateful to have had the birth experience I did. Thanks!!

Christina is an absolute godsend. My husband was deployed throughout my entire pregnancy and the birth of my third child. Since we are a military family, I do not have a family support system here, and with Christina I felt like I had a support system. She was so professional and friendly and open to all of my suggestions for my birth experience, and when those all completely fell apart in the delivery room, she was still there supporting me and helping me make the difficult decisions I needed to make after 2 days of labor. 

I consider her a friend now, and I am so grateful to have had her to hold my hand through my pregnancy and birth. 

I also think her drive to get additional certifications in her training is so important, and I loved being able to use some of those tools, specifically the rebozo. I would recommend her services to anyone on the fence about a doula. Having a supportive doula is one of the best things I’ve ever done in my motherhood journey, and I’m lucky to have found a good one.

Upon the initial meeting of Christina she was so endearing, patient, kind and easy going. I knew she was the exact type of personality we were looking for to help ensure an amazing birth experience. She was always readily available for any questions we had, and even came to a Doctors appointment to meet the midwife for team collaboration. During labor I experienced nausea and some vomitting and she was right at my side helping me to feel the most comfortable I could during that experience. My husband still raves about how thankful he was to have her as a calming and helpful presence. We highly reccomend her and her services. I would and will use her again when the time comes. Thank you so much Christina.

Christina was the perfect match for me and my husband. If I had questions or concerns, she quickly tried to get me the answer.  This was my second baby and the first time I decided to labor naturally and it could not have been more of exactly how I imagined it would go. Christina gave me the encouragement I needed to work through and provided me so much comfort throughout my labor. She was vital in giving my husband the support he needed to be strong for me when I was doubting myself. She reminded me that I was capable even when a couple of things didn't go as planned.  Ultimately, I was able to have my daughter without any pain medication and major interventions and I owe a big thanks to her. If I had another baby, I would definitely want Christina by our side again.

My 1st time mom nerves were put to ease by Christina Brown. She gave me a sense of comfort through the whole process and was there for any questions. She did not push herself upon me instead guided me with respect. I had complications until later in my pregnancy and decided to deliver at a hospital. Unfortunately they are not as open to Doula's so she was limited. Everytime she was able to work with me there were results. I have full confidence that if she had full range with me that things would of happened faster. I would have her by my side again and recommend her to another expecting mom!
