Mommies Are Talking
"I had peace of mind ... knowing Chris would be right there beside us... she encouraged me with whatever decision I made. I would highly recommend her expertise. You won't be disappointed."
"With Chris by my side I was able to achieve my goal (of an unmedicated birth). She was super supportive, she made me feel like it was all about me and my baby! I recommend Chris to be your doula, if it’s your first child or your 5th..." ~ Sarai
"You were constantly available to answer questions, make suggestions and just be there with a loving word or touch. Your positivity and authenticity made a big difference in the challenging moments. Thank you so much, from the bottom of our grateful hearts!" ~ Aimee
"She helped me cope with the pains of birth, helped get my questions answered, kept me in the know and strong. When the time came and I decided I needed an epidural, we had a plan and she was there to support it. When the time came to push she was by my side, talking me through it..." ~Ariana
WHAT IS A DOULA?
A doula is a professional with evidence based training in pregancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. A doula provides emotional, physical, and educational support to a mother who is expecting, is experiencing labor or has recently given birth. The doula's purpose is to help women have a memorable, satisfying and empowering birth experience.
