      “I was on the fence about hiring a doula. I decided to start interviewing some to see if anything felt right. I reached out to approximately 10 doulas and interviewed at least 5. Rachel and I hit it off from our very first conversation. While I was interviewing other doulas, all I could think about was Rachel and how I felt like she was our match!
      Rachel has a very calm demeanor, which is extremely helpful during birth. Her presence brings stillness to the otherwise-sometimes-chaotic delivery room without her even having to speak. She is trained in a variety of coping mechanisms to use during labor and has had personal experience with a hospital birth and home birth. This gives her the ability to provide first hand advice to the mothers she is serving, regardless of the setting.
      In the weeks leading up to labor, Rachel checked in frequently. The morning I went into labor, I called Rachel at 4am. She met me at the birth center within an hour and a half as I was progressing rapidly. My daughter was born 2 and a half hours labor, completely unmedicated. I don’t think I could’ve done this without Rachel. She kept me, my husband, and my sister calm during a very intense few hours of labor. She held cold rags over my body when I was too hot, changing them frequently. She turned on soft music, brought inspirational quotes to hang around the room, and encouraged me with and without words.
      I would highly recommend Rachel (and already have!) to anyone.”

      “Rachel was amazing. I decided to hire a doula a little later in pregnancy after I decided I wanted to try for a natural birth in a hospital setting but didn’t think I could do it on my own without help. Rachel supported me every step of the way through a tough pregnancy and was always available to answer questions and encourage me when I started to doubt myself.

      My son was born in March 2020 and Rachel was incredibly supportive and helped me deal with the mental challenges I faced in giving birth during the Covid pandemic. Rachel wasn’t able to attend the birth as planned because of Covid restrictions, but she assured my husband and me that we were prepared for the birth and that she would be with me at home and then available via phone or FaceTime throughout the delivery if I needed her.

      For me, the most important benefit of hiring Rachel was that I went into the delivery knowing what to expect and feeling prepared. Because of Rachel, my husband and I knew how to handle the physical challenges of childbirth, how to speak with the hospital staff about the things we wanted and didn’t want, and how to stick to our birth plan. My son’s birth was such a happy, stress-free experience, and I attribute that to Rachel.”

      She is simply amazing. With Rachel’s phenomenal support I was able to achieve my goal of a natural labor at the hospital. She preformed many different techniques to help me be as comfortable as I could be going through the contractions. Rachel gave me the encouragement I needed and wasn’t afraid to speak up to hospital staff to make sure my birth plan could go accordingly as possible. Not only is she an amazing support for birth but she truly saved my breastfeeding journey. She was very attentive night and day in helping me with any questions or concerns and would even check on us herself which was so nice. Rachel is very passionate and knowledgeable about her work as a doula. I highly recommend her and will most definitely have her be my doula again if I were to have another baby.
