“Rachel is amazing at what she does. The attention to details she provides for her clients is unprecedented. She knows what to say and what to do without a word spoken. We all have a calling in life and being a doula is what Rachel is meant to do. I know my patients are going to have the best experience of bringing their bundle of joy into the world!” -Amy T., Labor & Delivery RN.
“Attending Rachel’s childbirth class was one of the most valuable steps we took to prepare for the birth of our daughter. The classes were fun and Rachel was very engaging, covering a wide range of helpful topics for both my husband and me. We were able to approach our daughter’s birth with confidence and make thoughtful decisions based on what we learned in our childbirth classes. Rachel is an amazing resource, and I highly recommend her and her classes to anyone.” -Ilia G.
“Rachel was my doula for the birth of my 2nd child. I went natural for my first birth as well, but without hiring a doula. I can testify to the incredible difference it makes having a doula verses not having one. I always tell people how my 2nd birth was so much more enjoyable. She helped me deal with the pain and fears of childbirth in empowering ways. Rachel helped me be present and actively involved in my birth. When I would begin to slip into delirium, she would pull some doula magic out to bring me back. She was a valuable team member that peacefully fought for the birth I desired, and helped me achieve little goals I had set, all while keeping mine and baby’s health at the front. I am having baby #3 in a few weeks, and you’d better believe Rachel will be there!” -Kristin O.
From a dad’s perspective:
“Rachel was a fantastic resource for our 2nd daughters birth. We did not use Rachel for our first child and we ended up having an emergency csection. After our second child and what Rachel helped us do, I’m confident we would have had a natural birth with our first daughter also. With that being said, Rachel helped me and my wife stay on track. She was able to suggest ideas and positions that were able to keep us progressing. Her hands on approach was just what we needed. During our first child’s birth we got tired and had no motivation. Using Rachel for our second child not only did we have a successful unmedicated birth, it was a vbac which is a pretty special thing. Rachel was able to keep us motivated, and helped us to have a very successful labor! I do not think we could have done it by ourselves. Her knowledge and ideas were invaluable! If we have a third child she will be the first person we call! She is a rockstar doula and you should definitely consider her services!” -Jamie B.
“Rachel was our doula for our fourth child and I can not say enough about what a beautiful experience it was working with her! She was recommended by our pediatrician, who knew that after three previous inductions and epidurals I really longed to go into labor on my own and have a natural childbirth. Rachel was key in educating me on my body during the last stages of pregnancy (since I had never gone into labor on my own!) and my rights as a patient. She also was a huge encouragement while I waited it out (10 days over my due date) and during my labor. Having her come to our home allowed me to labor almost entirely at home and give my husband the reassurance he needed as well. I honestly believe having Rachel allowed me to have the birthing experience that I had prayed for!” -Melissa L.
