Having an unmedicated birth was so much harder than I expected it to be. There's no way I would have been able to do it without Rachel. She is exactly what I was looking for in a doula. She came in and quietly took control of the situation. She was in tune to what I needed and gave me the physical and emotional support that I needed to get through each contraction. When I felt like I couldn't go on, she gave me the encouragement I needed and helped my keep my perspective. She also directed my husband to how he could best support me. I had a positive and empowering birthing experience due largely to the support I received from Rachel. I would recommend her services to any pregnant woman wanting amazing support during labor.
