We believe that hiring a doula can be an invaluable help to parents during labor and/or the first few weeks and months as new parents. Please take a moment to meet Christine and Jennie, our trusted doula partners, and learn how they can help you create a positive experience throughout your pregnancy and early parenthood.
Christine is a certified birth and postpartum doula through the International Doula Institute. Through empathy and compassion Christine creates a space that is collaborative, informative and allows others to feel heard. She takes time to get to know her clients needs and to truly understand their birth journey. Using educational tools, relaxation techniques and by bringing a sense of peace, she supports her clients' transition into parenthood. As a birth doula Christine truly believes that we are all creating a lifelong memory together and she will do all she can to ensure that it is a positive one.
Once home with the newest member of your family, postpartum support can be scheduled week to week based on the needs of the family. With postpartum support, you can utilize your first few weeks at home to get connected and related to your new family member. Christine can help take on those extra day to day challenges and provide you with time to bond. Through the night you can get a peaceful sleep knowing that your newborn is in great hands.
