Testimonial for Mindful Birth Services and Doula Care, LLC // Full svc. doula agency (w/ updated VIRTUAL svcs)

Hiring Christine as our doula was the wisest choice, and best financial decision, my partner and I made planning our birth. We hoped for a water birth and chose a certified nurse midwife at a birth center. I interviewed and dismissed a couple potential doulas before we scheduled an in-person meeting with Christine. She shared her birthing and doula philosophies, and explained her role as a doula before, during, and after our birth. Chris listened as we described our preferences, desired birth experience, and hopes for the remainder of my pregnancy.

Chris provided helpful tips, recommended reading and access to her personal doula library, as well as support for the last remaining weeks of my pregnancy. When my water broke a week before our due date, she calmly assured us that she was prepared to guide and support us as we checked in with our midwife, and made arrangements to go to the birth center. As we navigated through the several decisions we had to make once my water broke, Chris remained ever-present but unobtrusive. My contractions started within hours of my water breaking but they would start and stop for the following few days as we discussed our options for encouraging active labor through a variety of natural induction methods Chris and our midwife presented and we selected.

My fiance and I slept very little during my nearly-three day labor. Chris was an indispensible member of our birth team as she ensured I stay hypdrated; delivered physical, emotional, and mental support to me (and my tired fiance); and assisted us in making safe, informed, and effective choices which resulted in a hospital transfer. At the hospital, Chris became our family advocate--her previous experience, calm demeanor, and professionalism were a haven during our birth.

I will continue to praise Christine and her doula services, and highly recommend her as a competent, caring, professional doula.
