Testimonial for Christina Carino CD(DONA)

Christina is a phenomenal doula. Her knowledge and personality are sure to keep you calm and reassured during the prenatal and birthing experience.

At six months pregnant I changed to a midwife and wanted to have a doula as well. After seeing her profile and testimonials knew she was the right person.

Her prenatal visit with my husband and I was incredibly helpful, her experience as a mother and doula made me feel confident and assured that my labor goals were attainable. She taught us pain manangment techniques and most importantly breathing techniques which came in very handy during labor.

I reached to Christina days before my labor started with questions of signs and symptoms I was having, she always responded promptly. During my labor she arrived to my home when I could no longer manage my pain and quickly unloaded her bag of doula goodie supplies and proceeded her robozo, hot compress, massages, yoga ball techniques, among other techniques. By the time we got to the hospital I was already 4-5cm dilated.

I was able to use a tub and was a little disappointed that the jacuzzi feature didn't work and the nurse said engineering would have to fix it..despite this Christina went ahead and fixed it herself..a real go getter. She pushed me to keep going when I wanted to give up...she gave me hope. With every stage of labor she changed the pain management to fit the intensity appropriately.  I went from being hot to cold to hot again and she's accommodated me every time and never failed to kept me hydrated. She and my husband worked together with her techniques, and I felt protected and cared for every second. I ended up having to labor in the hospital for 4 hours and 16 minutes, many thanks to Christina.

She is the most caring and nurturing person which makes her perfect as a doula. I would recommend her wholeheartedly. She is passionate, dedicated and knowledgable in what she does, a true gem!
