My water broke at midnight and by 6am, contractions had picked up and I was having to really concentrate on relaxing. I asked my husband to call Christina, and within 30 min she was by my side giving me suggestions for positions and reminding me to breath. The minute I saw her walk through the door, I just felt like a weight lifted. I didn’t have to use my brain anymore, CHRISTINA WAS MY BRAIN. During labor she was invaluable, reminding me to breath, relax, eat, drink, focus and work hard. She also was there when I wasn’t sure what to do next, providing evidence based facts and verbalizing my birth plan when I didn’t have the ability to speak. My husband gained so much confidence this labor, and I think it’s because he had Christina as a partner.  During the most intense part of pushing, I will forever remember Christina’s face and calm voice reminding me I was safe and in control.

If you are looking for a friend that can help you navigate pregnancy and birth, someone who loves empowering women through education … Christina is your doula. If you want someone to help you navigate postpartum changes, breastfeeding and postpartum mental health…she’s your doula. I couldn’t have done any of this without her.

Christina was our doula for my husband and my first baby a few months ago and she was so supportive! She had tons of helpful information and resources that made us feel very confident when making decisions. And she did such a great job creating a calm and relaxing environment for all of us. She really listened to what was best for us and overall made the experience so good! Also as someone who has struggled with anxiety and depression in the past, I really appreciated her focus on mental health. She opened up the discussion of post partum depression in a way that felt safe and supportive, so I could really feel comfortable talking to her. I highly recoemmend her!
