Christine is a Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula and a Birthing From Within childbirth mentor and facilitator in training. She has witnessed the many ways in which the pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey holds the capacity to be a transformative experience for everyone involved.
Her hope as a doula and childbirth mentor is to validate and celebrate each parent’s experience as she helps facilitate their own self-discovery. Christine has had the opportunity to serve hundreds of families in the Portland area since 2003. She believes in peoples natural ability to cope and move through hard things and enjoys helping people through the unknown.
“I believe in a woman’s natural ability to give birth, in any way that is right for her. Birth can be an empowering and transformative experience for everyone involved, even if things don’t go according to plan. My goal as a doula and childbirth mentor is to validate and celebrate each parent’s experience and self-discovery.”
In addition to birth classes, Christine offers postpartum doula services, including uniquely tailored postpartum nurturing sessions, hot rock applicaton, placenta encapsulation, belly casting and Mother Blessing ceremonies.
Outside of birth work, Christine loves learning and immersing herself in wellness, nutrition, nature, human development, community building, ritual and ceremony. In her free time she enjoys gardening, spending time in nature with her dog, singing, drumming, cooking delicious food and being an Auntie.
