Testimonial for Christina Carino CD(DONA)

I am overdue in writing this review but couldn’t go another week without writing in to share of my incredible experience with Christina. We interviewed several doulas but none of them instilled the confidence and care that Christina offered. I booked her later in my pregnancy and since this was my 2nd birth I thought I only needed a little support. She became instrumental in getting me the all-natural birth I was seeking and taught me about how to prepare myself for a different birth experience than I had with my first. She gave me a pathway for a profound birth experience. I felt strong, in control of my body and birthed without fear. This is an experience I will carry throughout my life. The midwife who delivered me did not live up to expectations. If Chris was not there I would not have known what was going on during my birth & I would have felt disempowered. In fact, she was sheer seconds away from catching the baby when the midwife was out of the room! Christina is a gift, she expertly navigates being a cheerleader, a coach and a mother. She led me through the highs and lows of my birth and knew when I needed to be pushed and knew when I needed to be comforted. Before the birth, she taught me exercises to prep for birth and get the baby in the best position. My first birth was 16 hours and my second was 4. Im confident that these tools prepared my body and mind. Christina is someone who quickly feels like family. She knows about the whole spectrum of care: birth prep to breastfeeding, she even offered helpful sleep tips at the postnatal visit. I felt at home in her care and still feel like I could call her for support and she would immediately answer. She has a warm nurturing spirit and is generous with her time and talents. She is incredibly adept at reading cues and supporting the whole family. I feel blessed to have found her and now have her in my community. She was born to do this work, I couldn’t imagine my birth without her.
