Testimonial for Christina Duff

Do you ever pack extra things for a trip as "just in case" items, knowing you probably won’t need them, but you carelessly toss them in your suitcase anyway? A cozy sweatshirt? A couple more hair ties? Just *one more* pair of shoes?  


This was my approach to birthing my third baby. “I don’t really need a doula, do I? I had one with each of my previous kids, so I’m a pro now!” 


Well, it really was a good idea that I packed those extra hair ties. 


In my overconfidence, I forgot that every birth is truly unique, and so after 8 hours of stalled labor, my husband and I were relieved to be able to rely on the expertise of our doula Christina as we texted and talked by phone about strategies to jump start labor. When we asked her to come to the birth center shortly after I was induced with castor oil, she was there promptly. She helped in ways that I didn’t even know I needed. She helped me stay calm with verbal cues and helped with pain management with back rubs. She struck a balance of compassion and professionalism. She didn’t over-empathize, but she also wasn’t cold. If we were to have any more kids, we wouldn't think twice about hiring Christina. She was worth so much more than extra hair ties.
