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

When I found out I was pregnant I was filled with joy, excitement, and a little bit of nervousness. After our initial meeting with Christine Ghali (Chris), my husband and I knew she would be the perfect fit as our doula. She asked questions about how we imagined our birth experience would be and without judgement told us how she could help us.

Then we decided to take her “Birthing From Within” course — I'm so glad we did. Chris provided an open and warm atmosphere for us to learn how to get ready for our big day. We learned many lessons however the most important lesson was teaching us methods to cope with the challenges we could encounter during delivery. I also attended a Birth Circle (hosted by Chris) for the opportunity to meet other mothers and soon to be mothers to hear their birth stories. One aspect about Chris I love is that she guides you without lecturing.

On the day of the birth, I felt very confident in our preparedness. My initial nervousness had subsided knowing I was equipped with new tools to cope with any situation. During active labor, Chris's experience as an amazing doula became apparent and her presence truely facilitated the process to make it one of my greatest life events. To list all the ways she contributed would be too numerous but the most important are as follows:

-Advice on different labor positions

-Walked me through several relaxation exercises

-Used aromatherapy to help make me comfortable

-Intuitively knew when to give me a lower back massage (one of the nurses even made a comment that the room seemed like a spa!)

I felt I had a great support team including my husband and especially Chris who brought tons of experience to the delivery room. I knew Chris would be there for me no matter what happened and felt so fortunate to have her as my doula. I plan to have her by my side again and I highly recommend her to anyone that is preparing for childbirth.
