Testimonial for Christina Duff

Christina was a wonderful, wonderful doula. My husband and I moved to the Philadelphia area four weeks before my daughter was born.  I was nervous having to get a new doctor so late in the game since I had planned to deliver at a birthing center in my previous city and was not able to get into a birthing center at the last minute where I currently live.  Hiring Christina as our doula allowed us to know that we would have a true advocate with us during the entire birth in a hospital setting.  Christina was positive, upbeat, and lowkey the entire few weeks leading up to labor.  She gave me great resources when I was close to two weeks past my due date, including an at-home visit from a wonderful acupuncturist who helped re-kickstart my labor after it stopped.  Christina immediately met me at the hospital when I arrived 5cm dilated.  She walked with me during labor, gave me strategies to help keep my contractions progressing, talked me through each wave of pain when they got stronger, and more.  I went into labor on a Friday night at home, arrived at the hospital Monday morning and unfortunately after my water was accidentally broken my daughter turned to a posterior position and had still not descended by almost the next day even though I was fully dilated.  When the doctors assured me that a c-section was the most important next step, Christina gave me every assurance I needed to feel comfortable with that outcome.  My husband and I had planned for a natural birth but more than anything, wanted a positive experience.  I feel that Christina's support and affirmation helped us keep my daugther's birth a positive experience despite the unplanned surgery.  Christina stayed until I was stitched up and back in my hospital room and her follow-up in the weeks after was essential (including an outing to the playground with our kids!). I would whole-heartedly recommend Christina to anyone.
