Christina was our birth doula during the birth of our second baby daughter. The first labour five years ago was traumatic for both my husband and me, as it was a long labour without any pain relief which ended up in an instrumental delivery and was not the kind of romantic, natural birth we were preparing for. It took a long time to decide to have another child and we knew we needed help to get through the birth. Christina was an ideal choice as she was trained and experienced with birth trauma. For me the key part of the birth plan was pain management and for my husband reassurance that I am in good hands when he needed a rest. Having Christina with me and having talked to her before the birth about my expectations, wishes and concerns, really empowered me in having a super clear picture of what I wanted and the strength to see it all through. On the day, all the way throughout the twelve hours of the birth Christina was such a calming presence. She gave me such a fantastic idea to bring a picture of my older daughter and her drawings to the hospital and she stuck those on the wall in front of me. That sight of her and the drawing of us with the new sister was such a huge inspiration and is forever stuck in my mind. The final stages of labour ending with a beautiful, spontaneous, vaginal delivery were very healing for my husband and me, as he held my hand and counted down the arrival of our precious new baby. It was so lovely to see Christina again after a week or so after the birth to reminiscence and she also gave us some great tips about how to settle the baby. After being so scared about the birth, we could not wish for a better experience and Christina was for sure a huge part of it. Iva and Damian Crane
We could not wish for a better experience
Christina came to work as a night nanny for my twin boys. It was important that I found someone whom I could trust to leave my babies with during the night. Christina gave me this sense of security and I never worried about my boys when they were in her care. Christina is patient and caring which is vital when looking after babies so young, she was able to offer advice on sleep patterns, routines and other general things like teething etc. Christina was happy to follow instructions and did things how I the mother wanted them done. Christina is easy going, friendly and I would employ her again. Natalia Di Blasi Primary School Teacher
A sense of security
I would be happy to recommend Christina to any other family seeking a maternity nurse. Christina is first and foremost a really nice person ( which is so important when you have someone in your house), unobtrusive ( ie she knew when to leave my husband and I to have our own time with our daughter) and very knowledgeable, gving me tips and advice on how to get into a good routine in relation to sleep, feeding etc. It was a godsend having Christina take the lead at night, allowing me to get some much needed rest between feeds. If I had another baby I would absolutely seek Christina's help again, which is a testament to the great support I had from her in the very difficult early weeks. Amy Brand Personal Management
Great support in the very difficult early weeks
Christina fitted in seamlessly around our requirements, was a very warm, calm and friendly individual and gave advice in a simple and straightforward manner. She worked brilliantly with our baby and we had a very contented and calm baby who settled into a routine during her stay and has continued to have a good routine and settle in her cot ever since(something I was never able to achieve and guidelines on aspects of babycare and we quickly established trust in her. We are vey appreciative for Christina's time her in enabling , me to get some much needed rest post-natally, for her care for our newborn and for setting up a routine for her. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other families. Sarah Singh Speech and Language Therapist
We had a very contented and calm baby
Christina has made an amazing change in our everyday lives after she was with us for only a few days. We anticipated help with our sleep issues to be hard on little George and on us. Actually Christina made it very easy whilst following the routine. After a few days George sleeps easily at 6.30 in the evening and takes naps easily..... And this means he is in a better mood all day ! We found Christina very helpful, knowledgeable and pleasant, as well as a very calming prescence. We would not hesitate recommending her to anyone.
Christina has made an amazing change in our everyday lives
From the moment we met Christina we instantly warned to her-she is a lovely person, extremely trustworthy and we were delighted to have found her. It's not easy leaving a newborn to be looked after by someone else(even for just a few hours) and we took great care in choosing the right person. So glad to have found her !

So glad to have found her
There is no doubt that all your support ad encouragement as well as your pieces of advice after my emergency C section were very valuable and much appreciated. Besides I have kept up with breastfeeding and intend to do so for the next 5 months at least. Indeed, had you not been there to help me and encourage me with breastfeeding after my c section I would have struggled a lot. I am really pleased that my son has gained a lot of weight since hs birth which is really reassuring. I will definitely not hesitate to contact you in the future should I need further pieces of advice or support. Severine Nogre
Your support and encouragement was very valuable and much appreciated
Christina has been helping look after my baby boy since he was five weeks old. I was very lucky I found Christina. I had to do an hours work here and there from when he was very small. I am a first time mum and leaving your precious bundle with someone you don't know isn't easy, all you have to go on is instinct and trust. Christina was so natural with him and has a gentle and caring energy.
Christina was so natural with him and has a gentle and caring nature
Christina was our angel. She brought a soothing confidence to our home which disbursed the cloud of 'first parent panic'. She gently provided her expertise, which shone through the countless opinions one is subjected to. We are mostly grateful for Christina's sleep training, which means that our daughter now sleeps fully through the night, 8pm to 8am. Christina was excellent to have with us on holidy, ling haul flights were no issue. We really couldn't have aked for a better maternity nurse. I'm sure so much anxiety and nervousness was averted due to her prescence in our home, and we were sad to see her leave, but happy in the thought that lots of other little babies were to receive the same attention and love that Christmas gave to ours.

Christina was our angel
Christina worked for the family looking after the four month old boy. She was a great asset to our team and provided a wonderful level of care. She was considerate and discreet in the home and was always thoughtful to the parents and other members of staff. AS well as providing the usual care(feeding, bathing, playing and sleep training)she was very precise, and thorough, with regards to his numerous medications for breathing difficulties and his skin condition. Under Christina's care he was happy and content. She is trustworthy and easy to be around. She clearly loves the work she does and does it with attention to detail and joy. She never complained of being tired and was completely adaptable and flexible with regards to travelling and schedules. She is certainly not dictatorial or a one routine fits all babies approach, she manages to show her extensive knowledge with great gentleness. I would highly recommend Christina to anyone looking to engage the services of a maternity nurse. Michelle Baldwin ( Head of Childcare, UHNW family)
