Labor & Postpartum Doula
“Just as a woman’s heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth.”
-Virginia Di Orio
Hi! I’m Christina. I learned with the birth of my children that birth is unpredictable and part of the process is embracing the unknown. We have to be flexible- just like in parenting. After giving birth to my children, I was hooked on birth! I’ve seen, personally and with my doula clients, how birth can change a person’s life for the better! Now it’s my mission to empower, educate, and support women during their pregnancy and birth. After the birth of my 2nd daughter, I attended training with Academy of Certified Birth Educators (ACBE), and it was an amazing experience. My training taught me so much about pregnancy and the birth process; also how to best support the laboring woman.
I had a doula with my third pregnancy and birth, and the support I received from her made all the difference in my overall experience. After my training, I completed my apprenticeship with Labor of Love and have since been honored to support over 25 births, and 15 postpartum families! My experience includes hospital birth and home birth. I support couples and single mothers- overall, my favorite type of birth is one where the birthing person is heard, respected and supported in their wishes.
I also provide postpartum doula services! The postpartum period is a time of huge changes to the normal family routine. I enjoy offering new parents an extra set of hands to help you get much-needed rest, learn soothing techniques for your new baby, and keep your home in order while you transition into your new normal.
I look forward to meeting you and your partner where you are and working together during the process!
Labor doula fee: $1300
