BIRTH & POSTPARTUM DOULA
Christine was born and raised in Queens and lives in Jackson Heights with her husband and two children whose transformational births led her to this work. She is a birth and postpartum doula, lactation counselor and childbirth educator. Her birth and postpartum clients describe her as calm and positive and her childbirth ed students describe her as unbiased and funny. Her philosophy of birth is that it is both normal AND ceremonial and that birthing people deserve shared decision making with their providers. She mentors newer doulas and co-facilitates a prenatal and postpartum support group. She holds a BA and MA in International Relations and is never not listening to Beyonce.
"From helping us check-in in at the hospital, to setting up our "safe space" delivery room, to speaking with nurses when I was uncertain, to helping me with the simple task of putting my hair in a ponytail, to texting my family through the night so they felt informed, to coaching me through every transition of my delivery, to grabbing me extra pudding cups, to encouraging my husband, to siting with us after delivery to make sure we were taken care of...she was the BEST. I couldn't recommend a better doula than Christine."
