Christine was highly recommended to me by a very good friend who had worked with her before and had a great experience. We met Christine because someone had suggested we consider a doula, and we didn’t really know what to expect but but we’re immediately at ease with her and after meeting her decided she would likely be a great resource and make delivery a smoother process. We were right, she’s amazing! She has great energy, is calm and reassuring, and helped us navigate beinging our first child to the world. We felt less overwhelmed and more in charge of the process than had we done this without her. I had a difficult labor and delivery and she definitely made a difference in coaching me through it and communicating with the nurses and doctor when I was too exhausted. I would highly recommend Christine as a doula! We will definitely work with her in the future if we have any more babies.
Christine was amazing — pure and simple. I’d met with other doulas and, while they were lovely, they weren’t quite the right fit for us for multiple reasons. Despite not being right for me, these other women connected me with Christine and I could not be happier about the experience we had together. She took the time to meet with me multiple times before the birth, to ensure that I was comfortable with her, but also to ensure that my husband and I were a couple that would mesh well with her style — we all wanted that dynamic and mutually beneficial relationship.
When it came time for my labor, Christine was available and open to whatever would work best for me. She was available via phone or in person as I needed, the flexibility of which was so reassuring. Having urged me to make a birth plan, we all knew what my general desires wer in all situations and she went to work immediately setting up the hospital room to my preferences. She took the initiative to set the stage that I’d wanted and I found that there wasn’t a single moment when she seemed focused on anything but the laboring couple in front of her. Christine was a huge support to my husband, guiding him in providing comfort measures for me and even relieving him of the burden of keeping in contact with our families.
I feel as if I could write a novel outlining the benefits of having Christine attend the birth of my first child, but the fact of the matter is that I will never have the words to truly express my appreciation. When I was incapable of speaking, I heard my words come out of her mouth. When I lost all semblance of control, Christine made sure that this birth didn’t just happen to me; she made sure that I was still able to participate. I know my positive birth experience is due in large part to the support I received from this wonderful woman during my son’s labor, delivery, and in the days following.
