Chritine was amazing! She came right when I needed her. She listened to my needs and offered really helpful suggestions as well as being hands on. She also provided many techniques for my partner and mother to use with me. We couldn’t of done it without her. Thank you so much Christine!

" Christine was a joy to have help with our first birth. She's was at same time kind, caring and sensitive as well as professional, sensible and well educated. Even though we found her quite close to the birthdate she was very accommodating and the chicken soup at the postpartum visit was an awesome bonus.

To say that I loved having Christine as my Doula would be an understatement!

 

From the moment we began working together, Christine was dedicated to understanding my birth plan and getting to know my and my husbands' personalities. She really listened to what I wanted for my first childbirth experience, and researched ways to help me prepare for the natural, drug-free birth of my baby boy. This included finding ways to incorporate my yoga practice, getting to know breathing techniques that worked for me already, and coming prepared with every natural method of dealing with pain she could get her hands on. In the months, weeks and days leading up to my due date, she checked in often, and when I had questions she was always just a call or text away.

 

On the Big Day, Christine proved herself to be an absolute natural! She was patient, considerate, compassionate, and most importantly, she always kept me moving forward, never letting me dwell on the pain or feel sorry for myself. There wasn't a contraction where Christine wasn't by my side, counting me through and giving me words of encouragement and inspiration. When I showed doubts that I could handle the pain, she and my husband gently steered me back into my breathing, and I was able to re-focus and continue. Without this constant support, I may not have known my own strength, and for that I will always be grateful! Having a drug-free childbirth is one of the greatest accomplishments of my life.

 

In the weeks that followed, Christine proved to be as supportive of my recovery as she was to my birth preparation. It was so reassuring knowing that she was there for me as I healed up and navigated through my new life.

 

Christine will always have a very special place in our family and I look forward to having her with me on my next childbirth adventure!
