Christine was an amazing asset to my third son's birth (second VBAC). When I met her, I felt immediately comfortable. She has a calm, reassuring personality which is perfect for birth. Once she met me at the hospital and started supporting me (along with my husband and a doula-in-training) I felt much more confident having a natural birth. She came with aromatherapy, mood lighting (which was the same color as my "birth color" for those doing hypnobirthing), and was well practiced in massage. I don't think I could have had my ideal natural birth if it wasn't for all the support I had during labor. If you are considering a natural labor and on the fence about a doula, it is well worth it and Christine is a great choice!
Words cannot describe how amazing it was to work with Christine as we welcomed our first born son into the world. Initially my husband and I were on the fence about hiring a doula (financial reasons), and we ultimately decided to work with Christine after meeting her because she was very knowledgeable and experienced. The morning after our son was born, we looked at each other and said, "Having Christine was the best decision we made." When Christine came to the hospital she was ready to support me in every way. My family said she had a "bag of tools" with her. While in labor, Christine provided everything from aromatherapy, to massage, to words of encouragement and coaching. She was calm and knowledgeable. One of the best things about working with Christine is that she is a postpartum doula. Not only did she visit us two weeks after our baby was born, she also was available after the visit. We spoke over the phone to Christine about our baby sleeping and she gave us several strategies -- which worked! If we are blessed with another child, I would 100% want to work with Christine again. Truly a blessing to our family.
