"Rebecca was great. She was what we needed- someone knowledgeable and calming during the chaos of labor. She provided a steady peaceful presence with her coaching and support. She was very patient with us and took charge when we needed her to. We highly recommend Rebecca."

"Rebecca was a great doula. She was very reassuring throughout my labor. Had she not been there to support me and my husband I think things would have turned out very differently for me. Thanks Rebecca."

"Rebecca is a thorough, conscientious, sweet, and wonderful human being who is full of grace and has a great sense of humor.  She is passionate about babies and birthing and is a font of knowledge that belies her youthful presence. Rebecca's style of offering advice, is truly to offer up information and she never suggests anything with 'shoulds' -- which I really appreciated. It was a great comfort to me that she is also a mother and could relate directly to the experience of birthing and the post partum process.

 

As my doula, Rebecca was a grounding source of support for my 2nd baby. I was having contractions for weeks, and she patiently calmed me through it, checking in periodically to see how I was doing and letting me do most of the checking in so as to alleviate the "when is baby coming" pressure I was feeling from everyone else in the world including myself! When labor finally occurred it was SUPER speedy and Rebecca's presence was exactly what I needed. She was jovial when I needed so that I could remain present and connected; and quiet/calm/serene when the process required my concentration. During the more intense parts of my labor, Rebecca worked seamlessly with the hospital staff and was literally hands-on, providing massage and verbal support.

"My husband and I were very apprehensive about whether or not we needed a doula for the birth of our first child. We wanted the birthing experience to be a reflection of us, and for it to be an intimate experience to be shared among only ourselves. We didn't even want our family present. However, we realized three weeks before our due date that we couldn't handle everything on our own. I had wanted a natural, drug-free birth and knew that we would need someone to assist my husband in managing my pain through alternative methods. I contacted a few different doulas, but Rebecca stood out in her prompt, thorough, and organized responses (she reminded me of myself and how I run my personal business). We wanted to make a decision quickly since we were so close to my due date, so we scheduled a call with Rebecca and she immediately made us feel at ease. We knew right away that we were a perfect match.

 

 

Was it worth it to hire a doula in the end? Yes, worth every single penny. We could not have made it through without Rebecca. The birth happened quickly and was painful, but we made it through with Rebecca. I still remember the little things she would do that my husband would not have thought of - tying back my hair and bangs so that they wouldn't bother me, stroking me while the doctor and midwife stitched me up after the birth, and talking me through as the initial recovery became more complicated. She was able to help my son latch on during the golden hour when the other nurses couldn't.

 

 

We never felt like Rebecca was intruding on the experience between my husband and our new son, she was a necessary asset. We wholeheartedly recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for a doula to help them through this life changing experience."
