Christine was so valuable in the birth of our daughter. My partner thought I was nuts for wanting a doula and now he is the one that tells everyone about how great she was and why we needed her. 30 hours of natural labor turned into an emergency c-section and then a huge infection for me. It was Christine that kept us calm, present and accepting during this time. He is her biggest fan. I guess that makes me her second biggest fan.(more…)
Christine was our wonderful postpartum doula. She was such a calming presence after our planned homebirth turned emergency C-section and helped heal my heart. She also provided great support and encouragement through my lactation failure. I can’t imagine how we would have managed the first weeks without her. Our son connected with her right away. She was an enormous help!
