Testimonial for Christina Carino CD(DONA)

I had a scheduled c-section in Virginia for my first birth. This time around, I wanted to do everything that I could to avoid another c-section. That included hiring a doula. From our initial meeting, I knew Christina was the right doula for me. She is very straight-forward. Her own experience and passion for an informed, empowered birth experience made me sure that she would be extremely helpful.

Throughout my pregnancy, Christina was incredibly helpful. She always responded to texts and calls quickly. She guided me to asking the right questions and making sure I knew which parts of my care I could control or have a say in. Her resources helped me a lot when I had some complications. the information she provided my husband and I about options we had and choices we could make during the labor and delivery stages was invaluable. She provided us with medical research to help us make educated choices on our own. She never judged or tried to change our minds, just gave us information to decide for ourselves.

During my labor and delivery, Christina was awesome! She fanned me with the peppermint essential oil to help make me comfortable. She applied pressure on my hips during contractions. and she reminded me to breathe. Christina continued to let me make my own choices and feel empowered to do whatever I wanted or needed. She was there constantly, so my husband could take the breaks he needed. With Christina's help, I got the VBAC and birth experience I truly wanted.
