About Christine

CFR headshotChristine has a lifelong passion for everything having to do with birth, newborns and the formation of a new family.  For the last 20 years, she has explored this wonderful field  professionally, from practicing as a doctor in a NICU in her native Germany,  internships with a homebirth midwife, a holistic obstetric clinic, and a baby-friendly hospital, and researching “Kangaroo care for prematurely born infants” (Skin to Skin contact).  Her interest in helping prematurely born infants and their families led her to Boston to become certified as a NIDCAP Trainer for health professionals working in this field. She has supported prematurely born infants and their parents during NICU stays and in their homes. She is also a “Birthing From Within” childbirth mentor, postpartum doula, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, life coach and mother of two boys. Christine offers a variety of classes in group classroom settings as well as in individual families’ homes.
