Happy Clients and Happy Parents
“I couldn’t recommend Rachel any higher. She is by your side throughout the pregnancy and delivery process. Along with providing support and techniques for a successful birth, she is truly an advocate for YOUR birth. Her knowledge, huge heart, and experience are sure to make YOUR birth the best experience possible.”
“Through all the variables of pregnancy and birth, Rachel was a constant. Her practical knowledge and innate compassion helped me usher my first babe into the world. I can’t imagine what my birth experience would have looked like without her. Her gentle, informed, unwavering support kept me going when I lost faith in myself. She brought patience, joy, knowledge and commitment to the process of becoming a mother.”
“After my first birth felt a little out of control, with my second child I wanted someone there who knew about birth dedicated to helping both my husband and me through this experience. I knew I wanted to find a doula. It was certainly weird “interviewing” doulas for me, but Rachel and I clicked so well, I felt sure that she was who I needed. From the start, she was very firmly committed to making sure my husband and I both were comfortable, always asking him for input at our meetings (since I am quite the talker!). She offered her time freely, telling me not to hesitate to text her or call if I was in need of some support.”
“My daughter Charlotte came into this world July 2, 2010. My labor and her birth were utterly transformed by Rachel’s presence. As a first time mother, I had and still have, a huge amount of respect and awe for Rachel’s innate ability as a mother and powerful, positive force in this world. Having her by my side as I labored through 17 hours (including a switch from birthing center to hospital) was invaluable. Her knowledge of, and faith in, the birthing process and her calm, loving support made what could have been a traumatic experience for me beautiful from start to finish.”
“We are thankful for what we have learned and to know that we will have you in our corner for what is to come.”
“We can’t thank you enough for helping bring baby Nell earthside. Your help and support was so important!”
“I would have paid thousands had I known the impact her words would have.”
“Thank you so much Rachel for all the amazing support and love! Your presence brought an incredible lift and your words true strength! We’re so lucky to have met you, I know our friendship will endure!”
