Meet Christine

Christine is a certified postpartum doula, lactation counselor, childbirth educator, newborn care specialist, bereavement support, aromatherapist, and herbalist serving families in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Christine's postpartum philosophy

Christine's philosophy for postpartum parents is that if they take good care of the new parents in the beginning and let them rest and recover and heal and bond with their baby, they will be better parents. Our country has a long way to go in this regard, but we need to work on it each new parent at a time!

What is a Postpartum Doula?

A postpartum doula is the person who mothers the new mother after she has her baby. New parents rest, recover, heal, and bond with their new baby, while they take over keeping the family fed and hydrated, help teach baby care, help with breastfeeding, and take over their household chores like laundry, dishes, food prep, cooking, running errands, etc. until the new parents feel up to doing this on their own.

Postpartum Doula Care Includes

Christine's Care & Compassion keeps the parent fed and hydrated, assisting with breastfeeding education, assist the new parent while breastfeeding with pillows, positioning and snacks. They educate the family on how to mother the new mother. They also play with older siblings, hold or feed the baby while parent get rest or plays with older child, run interference and insulate the family from constant telephone calls and visitors, instruct parents on how to bathe and dress the baby or perform these tasks at the parent's request. They prepare meals, wash, fold, and put away baby clothes, organize the nursery by stocking diapers, laundry, etc.

They are also able to set up changing stations in well-used parts of the house, assemble the basics in a a basket for each floor of the house, to cut down on stair climbing, tidy up the kitchen, sit and listen to the parent describe their day, feelings and concerns.

They listen to the birth story, again and again, while also making suggestions for resources, referrals, and networking with other parents. They are able to answer the parent's questions, assess for problems with basic skills and adjustments and make recommendations when appropriate. They answer the questions of other family members and visitors, do the grocery shopping, offer the parent a gentle and relaxing foot or back massage, run errands with or for the parent, "babysit" while the parents are busy, change sheets on beds and cribs and maintain the overall household organization.


2021 Philly Family Community Family Favorite Doula

Family Focus Media has been building community with Main Line Parent and Philadelphia Family since 2010 and our annual LOVE Awards celebrate the BEST local resources for families, thanks to thousands of nominations like this one:

My husband and I are first-time parents and needed all the help we could get after we brought our son home from the hospital. Having a baby during a pandemic and recovering from a csection added extra layers of complexity and we are so grateful to have Chris in our lives! From the initial meet-up a few months before our due date through today Chris has put our mind at ease with her calming presence and proactive approach. She walked us through the services she could provide and we knew what to expect right from the start. Chris is caring, knowledgeable, respectful, punctual, flexible and always with a smile on her face. She's been providing us with a wealth of resources even when she's not around to help answer any questions we might have. It has truly been a pleasure having Chris in our home and would highly recommend her to anyone considering a doula and/or a newborn specialist. -Ava K.

Philly Family Community Member, Leslie G. shared:

Love Winner“Christine helped me climb the tallest mountain of my life; giving birth without major interventions. She gave me the knowledge and strength I didn't know I needed, and consequently I was able to have the birth I had always wanted. She is a consummate professional, both on the business side and on the human compassion side. She was by our side every step of the laboring journey, and was my advocate the whole way. It is rare to have such an impactful experience from anything these days, and I'm forever grateful to Chris for the extreme care and support she provided. We would ask her again and again to be our doula. She even went so far as to secure backups that we met and felt comfortable with in case she couldn't make it for the birth, a true testament to her professionalism. She deserves to be nominated for her thoroughness, experience, and overall exceptionalism in how she manages and carries out her business. But most importantly, she shows a true passion for what she does, and it blurs the lines of what a business is expected to even do. Simply amazing resource for women and the community in general!”

Philly Family Community Member, Michelle D. shared:

Christine was both my birth doula and a postpartum doula for both of my sons, and now she is the birth doula to my surrogate who is due in February with my daughter. Christine is simply the best most caring and kind professional. She is so knowledgeable and empowering but she also makes you feel very well taken care of. I can never say enough good things about her.

Philly Family Community Member, Nerida B. shared:

Christine was invaluable to our growing family as our post partum doula. We feel so lucky to have been able to have her with us at such a special time in our lives and will always be grateful for everything she did for us.||Christine is a very kind and careful person who is extremely knowledgeable and resourceful about birth and post partum joys and challenges. She is professional, experienced and works tirelessly. She is very easy-going and I felt very comfortable having her in our home from the minute we met. Her support and recommendations were incredibly helpful and reassuring at such a vulnerable and often confusing time in my life.||Christine is also generous in her sharing of books and products to support getting back on your feet after birth and during the important first weeks of finding your 'new normal'. She shared recipes and suggestions to aid in healing mentally and physically. ||Her business covers so many aspects of child birthing, recovery and healing and her use of technology to ensure the business aspects of her services are seamless for the user experience.|||Christine is everything we could have ever asked for in a post partum doula and more. She is absolutely amazing. Her and her business are worthy of this nomination.

    Christine is the most outstanding doula! She is kind, calm and EXACTLY the type of woman you want beside you while giving birth. She made my natural childbirth experience as easy as it possibly could be. She never stops helping you and coaching you and family members. Her support and compassion during my first pregnancy and labor made it a no-brainer to call her as soon as I was pregnant a second-time. Christine is a wonderful woman that truly has passion to help other women during the beautiful journey of pregnancy and motherhood.
