Testimonial for Christina Carino CD(DONA)

I can't imagine my birth experience without Christina! I was already happy with my decision to work with Christina based on all of the useful information and support she provided about formulating a birth plan and working up toward labor and delivery. As a new mom, I was amazed at all of the things she brought up that I wouldn't have even known to consider. Not only that, but Christina proved to be very supportive and experienced in helping me navigate my relationship with my doctors to make sure everything went the way I wanted, especially when they were pressuring me to be induced early because they were worried my baby was large. I knew I didn't want that, and she helped support me in that decision and work together with them in a informed and empowering way (and as it turned out the doctors overestimated her size).

But it was when I went into labor that working with Christina was most valuable. She is a physically and mentally strong, solid, steadying force. She was right there with me unwavering for 14 hours, along with my husband. The counter pressure she used on my hips and my back really helped me to make it through the intensifying contractions without drugs - she is such a powerhouse! She also allowed me to just mentally go to the place I needed to be without worrying about anything because i knew I had an advocate who knew what she was doing and who i fully trusted. Christina was an absolute rock and I definitely plan to work with her again for #2 :)
