Ocean Turnbull

We chose Christine to be our doula after she informed me about her free services to an amount of people.! We do not regret it at all! 

Everything was so smooth, and i wouldnt of changed the way delivery went! Before that day she answered any questions we had, if she didnt have an answer she found the answer! She is so very dedicated to her customers! I cannot say enough amazing things!

We have decide to have her join our last journey of child birth! So very excited to experience this with her all over again!  At the end of it all you will not have just someone who was supporting you, but youll come out in the end with one heck of a friend!??

As a busy self-employed professional, I did not have time to “read all the books” on pregnancy and labour. Working with a Doula was a no brainer. Christine came highly recommended and did not disappoint.

I went into pre-term labour at 29 weeks (even before we could start preparing my birth plan). My labour and delivery was full of unexpected complications, however, Christine rose to the challenge. She educated me every step of the way, advocated for my wishes and was the best emotional support.

Our work together postpartum helped me establish breastfeeding (which was not an easy journey with a 29 weeker), food prep, procure and set up baby necessities at home, support me during our long NICU stay and establish a smooth transition to a new normal with Babe at home.

I’ve come to appreciate that labour and delivery is not the end, but the beginning. The postpartum journey is full of hills and mountains.

I did not get my dream labour, but I did get the best experience in transitioning to motherhood.

Christine is much more than a Doula, she has become part of my family.
