Testimonial for Christine Halldorson, CD (DTI), CBE

Once I realized my husband and I were expecting twins, I knew I wanted to hire a doula to help me/us through the experience and birth. I met Chrissy at a birthing class event and knew right away she had the kind, warm, and gentle demeanor I'd need during my pregnancy and birth to balance out my anxiety and nerves.

Many people asked me why I'd hire a doula knowing with twins I'd most likely need a c-section, and now I can confidently say that having her by our side during what ended up a very intense c-section story was one of the best decisions we could have made.

When I was 37 weeks and 6 days, I was admitted for preeclampsia and needed a c-section right away. Chrissy dropped everything and headed to the hospital as I went into surgery. While my girls were delivered perfectly, I ended up hemorrhaging and needed emergency surgery and a transfusion while my daughters went to the nursery with my husband. Ultimately, Chrissy's support in recovery for all four of us was beyond invaluable. Luckily our girls were healthy enough to follow me to recovery, so while my husband tended to them, I awoke to Chrissy standing over my bed with comforting words (very angelic, truly) and ice chips. I was in so much pain and never felt such immense thirst in my life. She stayed by my side and fed me ice chips and sips of water until I was transferred to another room for the night. I was at my worst and she made me feel so safe and comforted in those moments.

My husband and I are so grateful to have had Chrissy in our lives through this experience. She is one of the best souls I've ever met and I feel so blessed that her aura and presence surrounded my girls during their first moments of life. I can't even begin to imagine my birth story without her in it.
