Testimonial for Christine Halldorson, CD (DTI), CBE

Chrissy had a lot to live up to as the doula for the birth of my second child. During my first pregnancy, my best friend was in training to be a doula, and was living with us at the time. She attended the birth of my son in August 2013 as both doula & friend. By the time I was pregnant with my second child, my best friend had moved to Georgia. When it became apparent that I was not going to be able to convince her to move back to New Jersey just to attend my birth, I realized I would have to find another doula. I was immediately drawn to Chrissy after reading her profile on Doula Match. I especially wanted to find someone who was a doula for both birth and postpartum. As she walked to her car after our initial consultation, I turned to my husband and asked if we could just keep her forever. We never bothered to interview anyone else. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She met us as the hospital when we though I was having the baby at 37 weeks. She was great all through the night and really helped keep my spirits up when my contractions stopped and we were sent home the next morning. A week and a half later she was with us for the real thing. When my daughter was born March 9, my husband was holding my right hand, and Chrissy was holding my left. Over the next few weeks, she came to the house to provide postpartum help. She anticipated what I would need and just did it, without being asked. It was amazing. She helped with the new baby, and my toddler, and the house. Most of all she helped me stay sane. When our time together was over, I felt so conflicted. I was so happy that I felt comfortable being on my own with both my newborn and my toddler. At the same time I was so sad knowing that Chrissy would not be around anymore. I really didn’t think anyone would be able to compare to the experience of having my best friend as my doula, but Chrissy was amazing. Every woman should have the support of a doula, and Chrissy is a great one!
