I will begin way back in 2003 when my husband and I first met Christine, which was at her Bradley class. We were learning a lot, as she is very knowledgeable concerning natural births and also enjoying her enthusiasm as she taught. Although we were only able to attend the first few classes due to going into labor EARLY, Christine made herself available to answer my many questions and visited the hospital on more than one occasion to comfort us through the challenging time of delivering a 24 weeker. Over the years, she attended 4 hospital births acting as our doula. The only birth of ours she didn’t attend was because she had just had her own baby a few weeks prior. As she received my late night/ early morning calls, there was never a hint of fatigue or frustration, only encouragement. She proved herself to be a very competent doula and sweet friend, working many selfless hours supporting us through each birth. Fourteen years later and pregnant with our 7th, we were finally able to experience an unforgettable birth of our baby girl in our home with Christine and her apprentice Heather. Without a doubt, they were both exhausted after being up all night with another client, but never let it interfere with their diligence and kindness during our family's special moment.Christine has been a Godsend and if we are blessed to have another baby, she will certainly be the one called on to help bring the little miracle into this world!
When we found out we were expecting our second child, the first person we reached out to was Christine, with Morning Glory Childbirth Services. After such a great experience with our first a couple years prior, we couldn't imagine anyone else guiding us through such a special experience. Christine educates, encourages, and empowers you throughout your pregnancy. She takes an active role at each appointment and makes sure that you & baby are progressing well. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns, and when the day came to welcome our little girl into the world, Christine helped us welcome her into our family. Even when I felt out of control, she always reassured me that everything was progressing just as it should be, and she was right! We wouldn't trust anyone more!
