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 that particular day and help me through whatever I was feeling or fearing for labor/delivery and adjusting to life as a family of 4. When the time came for our baby to arrive, Christie was there with whatever I needed. She provided such a calming presence for us.
Throughout my labor she let me do what felt natural to me and when I would hit a wall, she offered help and we got through it together. She is incredibly laid back, but when the time comes to be assertive she is not shy about “getting out her bossy finger”! When my water broke in the thick of labor, our baby’s heart rate dropped and I was coached into the right position to get him out quickly.
He was born in the water, healthy and beautiful! Christie and her amazing assistant, Carmen, did not bat an eye. They knew exactly what to do and helped us deliver our amazing baby, Lincoln, into the world naturally. I could not be more grateful for everything Christie did for us. From the time we met her we could see how much she absolutely loves being a midwife- caring for and empowering women to give birth the way we were intended to!!
