We were very happy with the postpartum night support we received hiring Cristina it was incredible at enabling both myself and my husband to get a good night’s sleep. She also provided great advice on the postpartum transition, including lactation support, newborn cues, baby-wearing, and taking care of ourselves. I would highly recommend her services.
Cristina empowered me. After a tramautic first birth experience the second had to be different. Cristina listened empathetically to my fears, acknowledged them and helped me reframe. She enabled me to see options and alternatives. She constantly reminded me I had choices. When birth day came I was prepared. She encouraged me to articulate my birth plan, ask questions and stay positive.
We knew we were going to have a c-section and wanted some postpartum support. I had no idea how much I would need Cristina until my baby was born – you just have no idea how insane it is until you’re IN it. From mental health support and check-ins, to night shifts and sleep support, to making sure my baby could eat (and making sure I was eating too), she helped us with it ALL. I had issues with breastfeeding and Cristina was there to help me figure out what we needed to do to make it happen. It took 10 weeks total before we were breastfeeding without support, and if she hadn’t been there I would have given up. There is nothing more important than the mental health and wellbeing of the ENTIRE family unit. She easily navigates issues with openness and positivity, comes to solutions quickly and is a truly gifted Doula.
