Meet Christine, Your Soul Care Midwife
Hey sis! My name is Christine. I am a mom of 2 beautiful daughters, a wife, daughter, best friend, sister and Certified Nurse Midwife x 10 years. Oh, I also consider myself a fake farmer. I have 9 goats and 5 dogs who serve absolutely no purpose outside of making me smile. I live on 7 acres in a semi rural area of Fayetteville, GA. My home is my safe haven and happy place that provides me with the space I need to escape from peopling. As a self employed midwife and solo business owner I enjoy being alone more and more often! I can't wait to share more about my life in the blog posts. But I am glad YOU ARE HERE. Because if you are here, you have reached some revelation in your life, personally and professionally, that is calling for a change, shift or reassessment. Let me help you achieve the balance you're looking for! You deserve it!

And if you've sacrificed years of your life to your calling, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.
