Testimonial for Christine Halldorson, CD (DTI), CBE

First off, wow! My husband and I had an amazing experience from pregnancy support to labor and delivery and beyond. We had no idea what to expect with having a doula, and after we met Christy, we didn't need to interview anyone else. Christy is very informative and you can tell she just LOVES what she does. We felt supported and cared for all along the way. If I didn't reach out first, I would hear from Christy about how I was doing. We were 10 days overdue and I wanted to have a medication- free childbirth and I wanted it to start naturally, but I was beginning to lose hope as contractions were going on for over 24 hours at this time. Christy was there to cheer me on in whatever decision I chose and to give factual information to help lead my decisions. 48 hours of contractions (at home) later we drove to the hospital to meet Christy where I was already 8 cm dilated! NOW we needed the support more than ever as this was our first child and did not know what to expect! My mom was also in the delivery room and both sets of parents came in just hours before pushing to check in and Christy kept her focus on me the whole time. After my water broke at 9.5 cm, that is when the pain really started and through every contraction, Christy was there pushing on my back to relieve some pain and then guiding my husband in how to care for me. As I was pushing I noticed (yes I was aware) how Christy lead my mom up to my head so she could be near me but yet she was still coaching me down by my feet. Watching her take the lead but still care for my husband and mom who wanted to support me was just EXACTLY how I envisioned my labor and I am crying here writing this. I had a hard postpartum with mastitis 6 times and my baby had a lip tie; this was worse than labor. Christy  was messaging me and checking up on me and sending me resources. She truly cared about my baby and our family. She goes above and beyond. I even told her "I can't wait to have you for the next one".
