Crystina has been and still is such a blessing to my baby and I. From our first encounter through my postpartum. She has answered every question I asked her. She was very informative and her sessions were very informative as well. She made sure I understood what my doctor and the nurses were saying to me. If I do decide to have another baby I would definitely work with Crystina again. Thank you so much!

I get teary eyes thinking about Crystina and the care she provided to me and my daughter. I started by taking her classes and gained ALOT OF USEFUL information that I still use til this day. After finishing the classes I decided I had to have her in the delivery room with me. I lost my mother at 17 and my grandmother a few years ago so I didn't really have any female family members that could accompany me during delivery. When it was time for my delivery as a first time mom I was terrified but she was so reassuring something in her voice made me feel so confident. I called her from the hospital and told her that I was being admitted she was there within 15mins I still don't understand how because she lives on the other side of town lol. When she arrived she brought the best energy and comfort. she communicated with me what was going on in a manner that I could understand by not using a lot hospital jargon. She stayed on top of everything from pain management to helping me with my significant other and keeping him calm lol. Crystina held my hand and wiped my tears when they place my baby girl on my stomach. I will always consider like family. Even after my delivery she continued to follow up with me about breastfeeding, my mental health etc. she didn't make me feel like just another client or a dollar bill. She genuine with her care but also maintained a professional manner. She is truly an angel to me and my daughter and I will most definitely be using her for my next pregnancy. My delivery was quick and easy and I feel strongly it's because of the extra assistance I received from crystina. The positions she used with me during contractions, the patience she showed me, the grace, the different breathing techniques the list goes on and on. If you are considering using Crystina as your doula im here to tell you do it!!!! She so passionate about what she does I promise you will not regret it!!!!

Due to having prior health problems I knew that my pregnancy would be rough. Then to have a scare at 20 weeks I wanted to make sure that I gave me and my baby a fighting chance. Thats when my husband found Crystina! Once I met her for the first time I knew that she was the perfect doula for us! She was nice, knowledgeable, and very relatable. She attended doctors appointments, did a hospital tour, provided a lactation class, a comfort measure session, helped me map out my birth plan, and was also there for labor and delivery. She was a one stop shop. I felt so confident going into delivery with her by my side! She kept me calm and comforted me the whole time. She also made sure that my husband felt comfortable and made sure he was hands on with the whole process. After delivery she stayed to make sure me and the baby were settled. She called and even did a postpartum home visit. She's truly the best at what she does. And she doesn't treat us as just her clients, she made us family and I am forever grateful!

My experience with Crystina as my doula was literally the best! I wish I had her around for my first child. I learned things I didn't know with my first. The breast feeding experience is better than the first time cause I had no clue on what I was doing on my own with my first child lol! Whenever I needed her to answer some things for me like medical related to my pregnancy she was there to answer it any time of the day! She supported me a lot with the delivery as well, I enjoyed having her!

My experience with my doula Crystina Hughes was AMAZINGGGG !!! I learned so much from her group sessions also. Anytime I had a question or need about anything she had the answers and was right there every step of the way. My labor experience was amazing also idk how I would have done it without her especially the pain management part  I never knew how important it was to have a doula now I tell everybody get a doula that extra support is always needed ♥?
