Work with me


Want my undivided attention?

Step 1:
Schedule a private consultation with me right here. You’ll answer a couple of brief questions and have the opportunity to share any information or files with me. You can pay by PayPal or credit card.

Step 2: Watch your email for your appointment confirmation.

Step 3: At the time of your consultation, we’ll meet by video for 90 minutes. Most people find this is enough time to plan some solid action steps.

“Cristen’s informed consent trainings have been a complete game changer for my students! Her teaching style is so authentic and has connected with my students in a way that allows them to dive deeper into this work while feeling safe to ask questions and expand more on what it means to be a birth worker. I will have Cristen back again and again for as long as possible!”
Sabia Wade, Founder, Birthing Advocacy Doula Trainings

“Cristen is an incredible facilitator, and her module on patient rights is an integral piece of our Labor and Birth Doula Training. Through our collaboration with Cristen, I know our Doulas are well prepared to enter the Rights Informed Birth Advocate role. Working with Cristen has been an honor, and we are so grateful to have her as a part of our training team and community.”
Nickie Tilsner, Co Executive Director, Cornerstone Doula Trainings


Want me to come to you?

How amazing would it be to bring the Know Your Rights course to your community in person?  Can you imagine the momentum that would build in your area?

I love speaking to parents, providers, and advocates about the rights of birthing people as well as obstetric violence, horizontal violence, trauma related to birth or attending births, and navigating maternity care.
