Christie is one of a kind. She’s experienced, professional, and incredibly supportive of you, your baby and those who love you both. What makes her especially unique is her openness to develop a bond with you that surpasses your average patient/practitioner relationship. Her practice is synonymous with caregiving and encouragement. She is a kind, caring soul who’s advocacy for your healthy pregnancy, safe labor & delivery, and beautiful new days with your baby are paramount.
When I first got pregnant I went the route of an OB/gym. It was a very uncomfortable and costly time. That’s when I truly decided I wanted a home birth with a midwife. The first midwife I met was Christie. She let me ask a million questions and made me feel really comfortable. I loved how she never pushed anything on me and always let me decide what was best for me and my baby. During the birth I felt so strong, safe and empowered and a lot of that is because of Christie.
Christie makes you feel comfortable from the moment you meet her with her openness and honesty. She trusts you to make the choices that are best for your baby, your body and your emotional status. She is there to assist you in the birth experience you desire and to help empower you through your birthing journey.
I loved that Christie came over to our house for our consultation. She made us feel safe. As time went on throughout the pregnancy she was always there for us. She offered recommendations on whatever we asked her about (heart burn remedies, yoga, nutrition, ect..). She was so encouraging during the labor process and made sure I stayed hydrated. There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not grateful for her.
Christie has been our midwife for 3 of our 6 children. From the beginning of our relationship with her, I have always felt comfortable, and confident in our decision to use her as our midwife. She can always answer my questions, in my appointments or outside “office hours”. She is calm and can think clearly and calmly on the fly. She has a personality that has kept me, while I labor, calm and confident in how God has designed our bodies to have babies.
With this last birth I had a small complication following birth. She was on top of it, checking in on me, consulting with an MD on my situation… Read more
We knew right away Christie was the right person for us during our first visit because of her friendly demeaner and obvious experience. Christie was incredible throughout my pregnancy – knowledgeable, flexible, and always willing to answer my questions even outside of our appointments. During and after labor she was also was exceptional. She supported when it was time to support, hung back when appropriate and jumped in when needed.
We had latching issues at birth and Christie made sure we did everything we needed to keep him healthy and thriving. As a first time mom I didn’t know what I was d… Read more
The minute I met Christie, I knew that she was the midwife for me. This was my third baby, second with a midwife, and first homebirth. Every visit was more like a visit with a friend, never did Christie make me uncomfortable or question my plan for my birth. Instead, she was always available to answer my questions, provide resources and support, and give advice.
I birthed my 7 lb 5 oz son at home in the water, surrounded by my husband and two children, and supported by Christie and her wonderful attendant, Bea. My home birth was everything I have ever wanted in a birth; peaceful, intense, lovi… Read more
We’re so happy Christie was our midwife! She created such a comfortable, trusting relationship with us. Any question or concern we had was met with respect and practical advice. When my blood pressure started to elevate at the end of my pregnancy, Christie was so vigilant in helping me stay healthy enough to birth at home.
She was super thorough during every appointment, and kept open communication throughout our time together through text, phone, and email.
By the end of my postpartum visits, I was sad to have to say goodbye. She is now a HUGE part of our son’s sweet story. You bet we give … Read more
There are certain instances in life when something is so good that you can’t really find the right terms to describe it all that well. I find myself in that scenario now as I try to write what having Christie as our midwife meant to us.
The doctors were fairly certain that we would never be able to conceive a child and so when all of a sudden we were expecting we were a little unprepared and perhaps just a little bit freaked out. When we met with Christie, she hardly spent a minute pressing us about choosing midwifery or comparing it to the hospital route like I expected. Our first meeting was… Read more
When I got pregnant with our second baby, my husband and I decided we wanted a different experience than we had with the prenatal care and birth of our first son (OB care and a hospital birth). When we met Christie and asked her to be our midwife it was as if a huge weight was removed from our shoulders because we connected with her immediately. We felt at ease about being in the right hands. Christie is amazingly down-to-earth and comforting.
My prenatal care under Christie was way more thorough than what I received during my first pregnancy. She would spend as much time with me as I needed t… Read more
