My name is Christy. I am a newly certified doula, but I am not new to "mothering the mother". I have 4 grown children and I bring over 20 years of childcare experience, including running my own daycare for almost 10 years, into my new career. I have always naturally been a caretaker of others, with a passion for taking care of new parents and new babies. I am honored to support new families during the birth of their child, and I specialize in helping all family members adjust to the changes a new baby can bring during the postpartum period. I strive to provide non-judgmental support at all times, whether it is at a birth or at home with a newborn, and I will support you in the choices you make for your family.
I am trained and certified with Madriella Doula Network as both a Birth Doula as well as a Postpartum Doula and I hope to add Newborn Care Specialist and Infant Sleep Training in the near future. I am also a volunteer birth doula at both Sutter Davis Hospital and Woodland Memorial where I have learned a lot and had some wonderful experiences.
I feel very privileged to be invited to share this special time with you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
