Meet Christine

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

Christine's birth philosophy

Over the years Christine has seen again and again that a safe and calm birthing environment with minimal disruptions allows your body and baby to know what to do to give birth. While this philosophy guides her care for you, Christine's #1 priority is to support you in making informed decisions and honoring your needs and wants for your birth.

What is a Doula?

Doula is an ancient Greek word for female who serves. There are two types of doulas. A birth doula is a woman who will help a laboring parent through the labor and the birth of their baby. Many doulas are certified by DONA International.

What is a Doula Care Includes

Christine's Care & Compassion provides continuous emotional support to the laboring couple, teach you many different physical comfort measures to use during labor, provide information, and help you advocate for yourself during your labor and birth. There are 2 prenatal meetings, the first around 30 weeks and the second around 36 weeks. They are with you for your active labor, for the birth of your baby, and for an hour or two after the birth, to make sure you get your immediate skin to skin contact and that the first breastfeeding session goes well. There is also a postpartum visit after you get home from your birthplace. Christine is on call for you from 37-42 weeks.

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, Alexandria P. shared:

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. 

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.
