Christina literally transformed for the best my pregnancy, birthing and post-pregnancy experiences.
When I learned I was pregnant, I did not know exactly how to approach birth, and would’ve probably just followed the doctor’s recommendation, trusting that doctors knows best and not having full control of my body and baby’s needs. Christina convinced me that, when it comes to pregnancy and birth, Woman and Mothers knows best. Not doctors. Our bodies know exactly how to do this, and we’ve been doing it since forever without unnecessary intervention (that probably fits more the doctors schedule than ours).
Thanks to her, I knew what type of birth I wanted and felt empowered to make it happen the way I wanted. She encouraged me to change practices when I was 32 weeks pregnant, and this was the best decision I made. She encouraged me to take hypnobirthing lessons, which helped me approach my pregnancy with confidence, calm, peace and joy.
Thanks to her, I saw birthing as one of the most wonderful life experiences a woman can have. I embraced it and remember it today with only joy and no regrets. I did not have a pregnancy without any intervention (I decided to go for an epidural in the end), but I was in control. I knew what I was capable of, and was able to make decisions being fully aware and conscious of the impacts.
She also guided the way during post-pregnancy, comforting me in my choices and giving me the confidence to listen to myself, as a Mother knows exactly the newborn baby needs.
I am forever grateful that Christina was part of my life during that time – My birthing experience wouldn’t be the same without her.
