Testimonial for Christine Halldorson, CD (DTI), CBE

From the moment we met with Chrissy, we knew we had made the right decision in hiring a doula to assist us with our daughter's birth.  Both my husband and myself felt immediately at ease with her warm and calming energy.  She addressed all of our questions and concerns in an extremely hearable and thorough manner.  it was obvious that she truly loves what she does and we couldn't appreciate that dedication more.  She asked a lot of thought provoking questions that helped us think through and prepare for not only the birthing process but for different scenarios so that no matter what happened we had a game plan.  Prior to going into labor she checked in every couple of days to see how I was doing and always had helpful and enjoyable resources for us to review.  During labor she wasted no time preparing our room to make it as calming as possible.  She helped interpret the options the doctor presented to us and allowed us to come to our own conclusions. After every contraction and push, she was there with a cup of ice water, a cold compress and encouraging words.  She took terrific pictures of us immediately after our daughter was born so we could focus on bonding.  She stayed with us after the birth to make sure that we were comfortable and the baby was breastfeeding.  We have also had her come for post partum help and it couldn't have been more helpful in the weeks after our daughter was born. Whether she's helping prep dinner, allowing me to go take a bath or just sitting and talking with me about how I am, she has truly become like a close friend. We will without a doubt be asking her to assist us for the second time around - we couldn't imagine doing it without her!
