A letter from our founder...

Dear soon-to-be parents,

 

My name is Christine, and I am the passionate founder of Mindful Birth Services. Since 2010, I have taught hundreds of couples in Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples about pregnancy, birth and early parenting and I have attended more than 100 births as a Certified Labor Doula. And I love helping parents just like YOU! To help you get a flavor for what has guided my path, read on. 

 

This work is my life and I have immersed myself in the highest levels of education available to non-medical birth workers. My trainings and certifications began in 2009 with Birthing From Within. Shortly after, I added training through Spinning Babies for Optimal Fetal Positioning by Gail Tully, and a VBAC Facts training through Jen Kamel. I am a Certified Doula, Certified Childbirth Educator, and a respected professional in our community.

 

With additional passion for supporting families seeking a vaginal birth after a cesarean birth, I co-founded the VBAC Advocates of Lee County. Additionally, I am proud to be a member of the Board of Directors for Birthing From Within International (2020). I am a credible source of knowledge and supportive services in our local birth community and I take my role seriously.  You will have many opportunities to work with me alongside your doula, through our support calls, Intake Call, birth classes, social media and more.

​Expectant families come to us with their birth worries, their excitement, their skepticism, knowing much and desiring to learn more. We guide these families through what they really need to know in order to birth and parent their precious children with the sounds and feelings of abundant love and respect playing in the background.

 

I welcome you to our website! I am committed to doing for you, exactly what I’ve done for so many others in our beautiful community. We'll compassionately guide you through your baby's best possible start in life. This is my Promise to you!

Christine
