from Fiona, mom of Owen, born March 2008

Owen on his third day of life! Christy has a lovely aura of calmness and peace about her that is just so comforting to expectant mamas. I remember that that was the first thing I noticed about her when we met - actually, even before that-when we first talked on the phone! I said to my husband, Mike, at one point during my pregnancy, "if anyone is meant to be a midwife, it's Christy!" I often think back to all of those happy prenatal visits and the complete faith you had in me. It truly is a comfort to me. It really is true that compassionate, loving care during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum creates a ripple effect that touches everyone around that mama and baby, and lasts for a lifetime!
