I am a breast cancer survivor and there's no way I could have been able to breastfeed from one breast my miracle baby girl, without Christina's help. Her passion for supporting and giving comfort is inspiring. Today at my baby almost turning 22 month I am still here breastfeeding my baby with one breast. Thank you Christina I hope your magic to help other in their breastfeeding journey never ends.
I got pregnant very quickly after finishing my radiations for breast cancer so my pregnancy was very full of emotions, more than normal. Christina doula knowledge was crucial for me to survive and make it a precious journey. If I ever have another baby I would not think twice before hiring her as my everything lady. Her magic is priceless.
Christina served as our doula and was well-worth the investment. Her knowledge, advice, and experience was reassuring for us as first time parents. My husband is a researcher so her evidence-based approach was appreciated.
When our birth turned out differently than we hoped, Christina was right there with us talking us through our options. She even held my hand during my unexpected c-section. My husband says, "it was great having her at the birth. It made me feel not so guilty about shutting my eyes for a quick nap."
When baby wouldn't latch the night we got home from the hospital, she Facetimed us to help and put us in touch with a nearby lactation consultant who came to our house the very next day.
Hiring Christina as a doula to help us with the birth was great, but her network of related birth-and-baby professionals she has connected us with postpartum has been huge as well.
Christina was a life saver when I hired her to make nutrition plans for me. I needed to lose ten pounds for a boxing match and Coach Christina really came through for me. We walked through my kitchen and I swapped the foods that would hinder me during my workouts and replaced them with better alternatives. Her guidance kept me in peak physical condition while I was training and made me feel full when I was cutting weight. I am definitely hiring her again for my next fight!!!! ??????
Christina is awesome! We cannot thank her enough! She was our doula for the birth of our daughter. This was my first birth and I was very nervous. She has such a calming effect which is exactly what I needed. She met with us three times before the birth and even attended a tour of the hospital with me. She is so informative. I was stressed when I was unable to attend a birthing class but Christina was there to give me all the education I needed. She helped prepare me for every step of labor and helped me create my birth plan. And when things did not go as planned, she was right there next to me, reassuring and comforting me. She even stayed and held our daughter so we could get a little rest after the exhausting birth. I feel so fortunate to have had Christina there. My doctor and nurses were also wonderful but they can’t be there every minute of labor. Christina was there the entire time. I am so incredibly grateful to her. So if you are looking for a doula, look no further, she is the best!
Christina is so amazing! As a first time mom, she answered so many questions I had and made me feel at ease. She was quick to reply to my questions and even come over when I needed her last minute. She really helped me get the hang of breastfeeding and made my overall experience more comfortable!! I DEF recommend her:)
Christina was such a huge support to me in my birthing story! She was available to speak to me from several states away during my birth planning, and she was there for me after my twins were born as a postpartum doula. She was and continues to be a huge support to us and invaluable resource. I can't recommend her enough. She is compassionate, charming, soft-spoken, knowledgeable, and beautiful inside and out. If you were looking for a doula for yourself or for a loved one, look no further. You don't even have to be in the same state to take advantage of her services!
I'm very grateful for all the help Christina has been to me. When she wound up being unavailable to be my doula because of a previously-booked client, she helped me to find one that was available, who was also wonderful. When I needed to have a second set of hands for a work trip, Christina joined me and my kids and was able to help me navigate a new city and to keep an eye on the young ones while I worked. She truly is gifted with babies and children and is a joy to be around.
I cannot imagine having my first child over again without the help and knowledge from Christina. She is not only well versed in the ever-changing world of Nutrition (with a Masters and years of experience), but she is also down to earth and so incredibly giving that she would give you the shirt off her back to make you feel better. Christina was our post partum doula and visited my husband, daughter and I in the NICU several times when my water broke at 34 weeks. She was a true supporter of everything I wanted to do and gave me the pros and cons. She was available via text, phone call and email at all hours and was attentive to my questions and knew “the rules of the road” in the hospital, especially the medical terms, vaccinations, “do’s” and “don’ts” and why. Just like taking driving lessons before driving a car, it is helpful to learn the ropes of the maternity ropes course in small doses instead of all at once! Christina helped my husband and I navigate breast feeding and “let-down” with videos and support and she was a great listener, therapist and cheerleader for me! She helped me BE ABLE to feed my child when most nurses recommended formula; even though my baby was vomiting it. Christina helped my husband and I get that thick honey like colostrum needed for strong antibody build up for my baby’ s strong immune system. I would say I will not have another baby without her! ~Proud Mama
As first time expectant parents, we knew that we would value the help of a doula during our delivery. We came across Christina after receiving several recommendations. We knew when we met her that she would be a wonderful addition to our birth team. Her personality is the perfect combination of bubbly and upbeat mixed with calming and reassuring. She was very helpful before baby arrived with giving us techniques to work on and answering all of my questions. Her presence at our birth was just what we needed! Most people that I told that we were having a doula thought it was a bit odd or had never heard of doulas before. Even my parents questioned why one was needed. After my delivery my husband and parents were singing Christina's praises. I knew I would love having her by my side but having her there made their jobs much easier as well. They were very thankful that she was so helpful in keeping me calm and focused. She even took pictures for us which I loved! She truly helped give me the confidence that I needed going into labor and delivery and she provided the needed support to help me through the natural labor and delivery that I was so hoping for. When people ask me how I managed an induced labor with no pain interventions, I say call Christina!
Christina's support did not end when our daughter was born. She continued to check in on us and came to the house to help me ease into new motherhood. She has continued to answer my questions and just knowing she is there continues to bring me peace. We have not used her childcare services just yet but I would feel 100% confident in trusting her to care for our daughter.
Christina was amazing! She went above and beyond before and and after I had my baby! She’s very knowledgeable and had many ideas for me to try! She was a HUGE help during labor and birth! She even stayed with me at the hospital overnight because my husband was unable to! I would recommend her to anyone!
Christina was amazing! It was my first baby and things didn’t go as planned, for reasons beyond our control. She helped to make my birth as much like what I had planned as it could be. She was very supportive, not only of me but my husband as well! Having her there helped me have peace and confidence in my decisions I made through out labor and delivery. I would highly recommend Christina to anyone wanting a doula, and we will definitely be using her again as well!
First of all, I highly recommend that everyone hire a doula for their birth- they are amazing. Christina was a life saver for us. She met with us several times prior to delivery, helping us come up with a birth plan. During the actual birth of my daughter, she helped provide necessary support for myself and my husband so we could stick to our birth plan. Christina was caring, professional and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. After the birth, she helped us initiate breastfeeding (it's a major plus that she's a lactation consultant as well). She also provided help with questions when we got home and provided a post-partum visit. Thanks to Christina, we had the best birthing experience I could imagine. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a doula.
Christina has been extremely helpful to my family during the birth and development of our 2 children. She has consistently offered helpful expert advice regarding breastfeeding and other baby topics. She has been comforting and helped put my wife at ease during stressful times as a mother. She has also given my wife confidence as a mother . We are grateful for her!
Christina has been an outstanding support for the births of my two children. She has always been available and eager to offer expert professional advice, specifically on breastfeeding. However, she has also provided great input about infant sleeping and adjustment to Motherhood overall. What I appreciate is her positive outlook and constant encouragement . I felt her sincere concern even though we mostly communicated via phone calls, texts, and email. With my first child I was so close to giving up on breastfeeding and I prayed for God to help me make it. She was an answered prayer! She has a true passion and gift for nutrition and all baby matters!
