"My husband and I stumbled on Christine from a recommendation from another Doula who herself was out on maternity leave. And boy are we glad that we did! We started our Doula search a bit late in the pregnancy, around 36 weeks, but Christine made herself available to meet with us twice before I gave birth. This was my first child and although I took all the classes Kaiser offers, meeting with Christine one on one put me more at ease. She was able to talk me through the whole process and gave me additional coping techniques for labor. Not only was she an incredibly calming and helpful presence at the birth, but even took some photos that I am so thankful to have. Christine is incredibly knowledgeable, but also an advocate to do what is right for you and your body. Plus, she is just a really nice and patient person. I would definitely recommend Christine as a choice for your Doula."

"Pregnancy is a wonderful stage in life. Thanks to God, I was able to have the support of a doula, who, more than a doula, is a great friend. She was always present every time I needed her. With her great experience, she guided my steps and together we walked on this path of life that was new for me. She offered me protection and I never felt alone because her support continued through her advice. She made my birth a great event full of tranquility, music, laughter…a pleasurable environment. Her great help continued with the arrival of my baby, directing me to be able to give the best care towards my baby and towards myself. Her unconditional help makes her job to be the best!!! God bless Christine Torres. She is in my heart!!!" - Translated from below-
"El embarazo es una maravillosa etapa de la vida. Gracias a Dios, pude contar con el apoyo de una Doula, que más que una Doula es una gran amiga... Siempre estuvo presente cada vez que la necesitaba, con su gran experiencia guió mis pasos y juntas caminamos en este sendero de la vida que para mí era nuevo. Me brindo protección y jamás me sentí sola, porque su apoyo continuo lo tuve a través de sus consejos. Hizo de mi parto un gran acontecimiento lleno de tranquilidad, música, risas... Un ambiente agradable. Su gran ayuda continuo con la llegada de mi bebe, orientándome para tener el mejor cuidado hacia mi bebe y conmigo misma. Su ayuda incondicional hace que su trabajo sea lo mejor!!! Dios la bendiga Christine Torres. La llevo en mi corazón!!!

"My son was a complete surprise for me and my husband, so from day one, I found myself overwhelmed and full of questions. Even though Christine is located hundreds of miles from me, and in a different time zone, she made herself available to talk with me and answer questions whenever I needed her. She helped me understand what was going on during pre-labor, helped me form a birth plan, guided me through breastfeeding, and helped talk me through post-partum feelings. Christine helped me realize that birth, breastfeeding, and caring for my newborn didn’t have to be an overwhelming process, but a joyful, natural process, and for that, I am truly grateful! "
