“I knew from my first conversation with Rachel that she was right doula for us. She is knowledgeable, caring, and calm. I never hesitated to contact her during my pregnancy. She was always prompt in responding to any question or concern. During labor, Rachel met my husband and me at the hospital. She arrived about 15 minutes after us. When she walked into the room, I immediately felt like, “Ah, Rachel is here. I can do this. Her calming presence was so comforting, even though I didn’t feel calm myself. We are so grateful that Rachel helped welcome our daughter into this world. I’ve recommended her several times and if we were going to have another child, Rachel would be a part of that birth, too. Rachel, thank you for empowering me to have the birth experience I desired!”
