My husband and I knew we wanted a doula at our birth after I was advised against a home water birth for a few reasons. We thought a doula in the hospital setting would be the next best thing. I looked on doula match and found Chrissy right away. After a few emails back and forth we set up a virtual consultation and instantly connected. After the call my husband and I both said we felt like she was one of our friends and we got along great together. We immediately knew we wanted her to be our doula. We're so glad we did. My labor was about 34 hours altogether and she was there for every minute once I called her to come to the house to offer support. Afterwards she said it was the longest labor she's been at, but also so much fun. Her support before, during and after my birth was amazing and means so much. It was everything I was hoping for. She and my husband were there to squeeze my hips during every contraction. Without that alone, I don't know how I could've made it through. Her kind and encouraging words and mellow and thoughtful demeanor throughout everything really made my experience great and less scary than I thought it would be. She was so supportive and reminded me to relax my face and shoulders and keep my sounds low and deep which was really helpful. I can't recommend Chrissy enough. My husband and I would certainly work with her again and said if I were to get pregnant again we would love to try for the homebirth and have Chrissy here as our doula. If you're thinking of hiring a doula I would encourage you to do it and choose Chrissy.
