About me: I have a life long passion for everything around birth, newborns and forming a new family, and explored this in my professional life from multiple angles over the last 20 years. I am a mother of two boys and live in Jamaica Plain. 

What class participants say about me and my classes:

A Mother: “Beyond basic practical info, we delved into the emotional aspects of birthing, becoming a parent. An amazing combination and very powerful. The setting also felt completely comfortable, non-judging, safe for all questions."

A Father: “The class started a lot of conversations with my partner that needed to happen. It has made us feel closer.”

A Mother:  “Christine was a great facilitator and really knew how to engage us in the class.  She asked great questions!” 

A Father: “A truly phenominal experience of growing closer as a couple and more confident and empowered to fully embrace our Birthing Journey.”

A Mother: “I feel really well informed and  equipped going into our labor. The time went by so quickly, and Christine did a fantastic job to covering as much materials as possible, without being superficial in the way we discussed the subjects.
