Working with Chrystin of Serene Birth Services was one of the best decisions my husband and I have ever made

Wow, where to even begin? Working with Chrystin of Serene Birth Services was one of the best decisions my husband and I have ever made.

We weren’t sure if we wanted to invest in a doula, (and honestly weren’t fully sure what a doula even was!) but many friends said to at least look into it. So glad we did! We wanted a 100% natural birth, but were giving birth in a big hospital and felt like it would be impossible to get through the birth without unnecessary “routine” interventions. That’s where Chrystin really made such a difference.

She spent time talking us through our birth plan and helping us distill what we really envisioned and wanted. She also gave the pros and cons of each decision in a very non-judgmental, educational way. Once she empowered us with the info, we could make our own decisions and she would simply remind us in the moment.

Between the initial meet and greet, the birth plan meeting, the birth and the post-birth meeting (and the many texts in between!) we really got to know Chrystin as a friend and I felt so comfortable and happy she was part of our birth experience. She has such a strong, calm, positive energy. In additon, she was able to capture some of the most amazing photos throughout the birth!

We will cherish these photos for a lifetime. If there’s even 1% curiousty and desire to have a birth companion, contact Chrystin! You will not regret it. I feel sure we would not have had such a peaceful, natural experience without her mentorship!
