Testimonial for Christina Carino CD(DONA)

I feel so lucky to have found Christina and I would recommend her in a heartbeat.  She was indispensable to have by me and my partner’s side during the birth of our son. She spent ample time in the prenatal period educating us, formulating the birth plan, and teaching us a labor prep exercise plan. She taught me about colostrum collection  before labor, which was vital because our son was briefly in the NICU. Christina was extremely supportive both physically and mentally during my multi-day induction. She didn’t leave my side during the all pushing and labor. In addition to being emotionally supportive, she coached me through various positions and physically assisted me when I couldn’t feel my legs from the epidural.  She made suggestions and position changes during labor when the ones recommended by hospital staff were not working. In the end, her support helped save me from an emergency c-section. She even stayed after the birth, when all the nurses left, to help clean me up and comfort me.  Even though Christina had been in the hospital with me for almost 20 hours, she did not leave until she knew I was comfortable. Christina continued to be responsive to my needs and always responded to texts and emails even after I left the hospital. If I could clone a Christina to be there for every woman’s birth I would.
