Testimonial for Christina Carino CD(DONA)

Christina is an amazing doula who guided me and my husband through our first pregnancy. She's incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and professional, all of which helped us have the mom-centered, intervention-free child birth that we very much wanted. Putting together a childbirth plan with her demystified the prep work for labor, and we relied on all of the advice she provided during her two prenatal visits. She has a very pragmatic, easy-to-follow style that worked well for us (especially when came to reminding me to do my exercises for strength or opening up the pelvis)!

My pregnancy was considered high-risk but once I made it past 32 weeks safely we realized that our then-OB-GYN and hospital would not allow me to deliver completely on those terms and needed to switch so late. Christina supported us during this stressful period and thankfully had current knowledge of OB-GYNs and hospital L&D practices in Westchester.

When I went into labor, Christina responded right away. At our home and at the hospital, she helped us with pain management techniques, applied pressure herself, and made sure I had a calm environment, etc -- all in the middle of the night and after having pulled several all-nighters attending other births.

Surprisingly, my labor lasted under three hours! My daughter arrived healthy and (with Christina's help) nursed immediately. I attribute all this to Christina having given us such sound advice and the (relative) calm that came from being empowered at each step of the way.
