Rose Roorda

I had a wonderful home birth in Colorado Springs with the help of Crystal. She was wonderful at putting me at ease and helping me through what I needed to do. I highly recommend Crystal as a birth doula, she has a breath of knowledge on not just birthing but massage and so much more! She is very professional and caring. Thank-you Crystal for all your help. Joseph is one year old now and a calm, happy kid, I attribute part of that to the fact I have been so much at ease in having him with the help of you and his natural birth!
