"Kristina helped prepare me wonderfully and was the strongest and most reliable birth resource I could have. Throughout pregnancy, she perfectly read my needs and continued to encourage me in a way that she knew would work for me. Through birth and labor, she was constantly advocating for my wellness, helping me navigate my choice of birth (hospital, epidural-free), and helping me make decisions that would support the exact birth I wanted. She is an expert in her craft on a physical and emotional level. My labor, by force of my own decisions, went a traumatic and difficult direction, and she absolutely helped me stay calm and centered throughout. My family members who witnessed Kristina in action (and had been skeptical of my decision to hire a doula) were in awe and all expressed gratitude for her role through my labor. She was fantastic, and I can't recommend her enough!"
