Made me feel so calm and at peace – Jenn, Land O Lakes


Christie and I were connected very late in my pregnancy due to some issues that came up with my prior doula. At 38 weeks I was super stressed to be having to meet with and find a new doula to attend my home birth, but Christie made me feel so calm and at peace with the sudden change.

She is one of those people that you feel like you’ve known forever upon just meeting. Her presence at my birth was so wonderful.  She was there for me when I needed her and stood back when I didn’t. She helped my husband stay calm as he ran around the house trying to prepare our birth space and fill the birth tun (our girl came fast!).

Christie has become a great friend and I wouldn’t hesitate to have her as my doula again in the future.
