Testimonial for Christine Scarlett, RN, BSN, PCD(DONA), CPD, CBD, CLC, CEIM

Hiring Christine as our postpartum doula was the best decision we made surrounding our daughter’s birth. She is a wealth of knowledge, both professionally, but more importantly from a mom standpoint since she raised seven children of her own. Because of this combination of knowledge, she was able to give me the evidence-based answers, but also the “mom” answers so I could make my own decisions.

I had the goal to breastfeed but was having some trouble with latching and positioning, especially while feeding my daughter during the night. Chris helped me trouble shoot ways to achieve a better latch and taught me Laid Back and Side Lying holds. My 6 lb. 6 oz. daughter was weighing over birthweight by Day 8 following birth, so I knew Chris’ techniques were insuring she was feeding properly and getting nourished.

Chris also helped me organize my nursery. I had two showers and received some unnecessary items. She helped me downsize and keep practical items, but also know what to return, donate, etc. She made up a diapering/nursing caddy for our living room with things we needed throughout the day so I didn’t have to keep walking up and down the stairs. She also helped me and my husband organize a diaper bag each for our cars that was complete with a lot of items I would never have thought of like snacks, emergency $10, clothes, cream, etc.

Chris gave me a thorough lesson in babywearing the sling, Baby K’tan, and Ergobaby I own which can be super confusing if you’ve never done it before. I can’t wait for my baby to be bigger so I can wear them in public instead of getting my stroller out at every store!

She has a mothering presence and was great at reminding me to take vitamins, naps, and eat. She brought me water and made meals for me and my family so we could have more one on one time.

I would recommend Chris to any of my pregnant friends and hope to use her again in the future.
