Testimonial for Christina Duff

I strongly recommend that you hire this exceptional woman to facilitate your birth experience!  

I am a second-time mom.  Unfortunately, I did not hire a doula to assist with the fairly traumatic birth of my first child.  As a result of that first birthing expeirence, I was left with feelings of fear, helplessness, and inadequacy.  I honestly did not believe that I had the strength or ability to have a birth without medical interventions.  

When I became pregnant again, my husband and I sought additional support for labor and delivery.  We interviewed doulas and discovered Christina after she attended a few of my friends' births.  We found her to be very knowledgeable and experienced. 

During the prenatal period, Christina listened to my fears, provided me with helpful information, and clearly gave me a picture of what she would (and would not) do as a doula.  She was always responsive.  I worked in conjunction with her and my provider to develop a natural induction plan when past my due date.  

During labor, Christina got to the hospital quickly.  She had many techniques (e.g., movements, breathing strategies, pressure points, etc) that I had not tried during my first birth experience.  She requested equipment that I did not know was available (i.e., a squat bar).  She was able to identify what I was good at and what was working for me v. what was unhelpful.  I hit two mental walls and she helped me move through them.  She also simultaneously supported my husband and found ways to allay his concern that she might usurp his crucial role during labor and delivery.  Most of all, Christina's calm and confident demeanor made it possible for me to realize my own strength.  With her help, my husband and I were able to achieve the healing birth experience that we so desired and needed.
