What Customers Are Saying About Their Experience With Doula Mama Chrissy
Solomon was born May 7th 2021 with Chrissy by my side. Chrissy was incredible. She followed my cues and listened to me and my body. There were some points when I just gave her a glance and she knew what to say and do to help me. Her emotional intelligence is spot on, her care for me was amazing. Chrissy was not only there for me during my son's quick birth but she was there for me during my entire pregnancy, a text or a phone call away to offer any type of support I needed. Chrissy is a treasure and I am so happy our community has her! If I have any more children I would need Chrissy on my birth team!
I don't think I could've gotten through my birthing experience without Doula Mama Chrissy by my side. She gave me tips to help my 1st pregnancy go smoothly along the most thoughtful basket filled with all the aftercare things I'd need after a vaginal birth. My baby was late so I chose to get induced. Chrissy made sure my hospital room was set just the way I wanted with candles, crystals and soothing music. After 24 hours of labor, my child was still not ready to come out as I was only 2cm dilated. I felt defeated; I wanted to give up and just get a c-section but Chrissy was speaking life into me and working with the nurses to ensure I get the vaginal delivery I planned for. We walked, bounced on a birthing ball and she gave me massages to help induce my labor naturally. After 48 hours, my baby arrived and Chrissy helped me to immediately start nursing to get my milk flowing. After I went home, if I had any questions, she was always a phone call away to assist. Thank you Doula Mama Chrissy for helping me deliver my precious baby girl! An experience I could never repay you for!
Hiring Chrissy as our doula was a huge relief to myself and my husband in many ways. She started out helping us during the 2 prenatal appointments at our home. There she helped to prepare us mentally & physically. I had been having back pains so she showed my husband some pressure points & stretches for me to do which helped tremendously. She also gave us tips on new diaper changing techniques & swaddling. When I went into labor it was such a relief for my husband to have Chrissy at our home. She helped calm us both, told me positions to get into to help with contractions, hit pressure points on me & used essential oils to relax me. Chrissy coordinated with the midwives at the birth center & helped us decide when it was time to go to the birth center. I know that took a lot of pressure off my husband. When we got to the birth center she continued to ease pains of labor by putting hot & cold wash clothes on me & being there for extra support. About a week after the birth, she did a home visit & helped us with additional tips and advice. I am so pleased with Chrissy's doula services & would highly recommend her services to others. She is caring & considerate of any special request we had. She is so easy to talk to & is very knowledgeable on her trade. My family is blessed to have met her.
Chrissy was an indispensable member of our birth and postpartum team. When our little girl still hadn’t made her debut at 12 days past her guess date, Chrissy suggested perineal steaming. Using her knowledge of herbs and skills as a Peri-steam Hydrotherapist, she safely set up the steaming process for me. Just over 24 hours later, I was holding my baby.
As a postpartum doula, she helped in so many ways. She held the baby. She did the dishes. She played games with our 5 year old son. She provided this fried mama much needed adult conversation about the Marvel cinematic universe, pop TV shows, and music. She was so helpful and supportive, and her cooking is fantastic!
