Hiring Chrystin as my doula was hands down one of the best decisions I made

June 5, 2017

Hiring Chrystin as my doula was hands down one of the best decisions I made in welcoming my sweet baby into this world. I had low platelet counts during the last half of my pregnancy so the only option was to have the baby naturally.

I wanted this anyways but when you have other options at your disposal its easier to use them. My husband and I knew that hiring a doula would help me do things the way we wanted and be that extra voice in the room saying, “she can do this.” That is exactly was she did. There was a moment the intensity in the room got out of control and she turned the entire mood around in just a few minutes.

She made an incredibly stressful situation one of the most calm and peaceful and that is how the rest of my labor went. This might sound crazy to some but in a way it was actually enjoyable. I think back constantly on that night and have nothing but happy thoughts and memories. We knew from our first meeting that she was going to be the doula for us. There was always laughter and joking between the three of us which helped for us.

I know everybody copes differently and I am confident that this amazing woman could adapt to any situation she is thrown in to make it perfect for not only mom, but for dad and baby as well.
