Rachel Levesque

My needs were met by Rukiyah. She provided support, knowledge and sisterhood! I benefited from her Dancing for Birth Classes and kept my strength through these classes and felt strong and ready for birth! I really felt like her knowledge about Spinning Babies helped me turn my posterior baby into the best postition. My birth was only 2 hours long and I recovered so quickly bacause I had so much support from Rukiyah, my midwives and my family! It was such an empowering journey to work with Rukiyah, I felt like I owned my birth yet I was surrounded by a supportive sisterhood!!! 

Her postpartum support was priceless! She made sure to connect with my older boy and make him feel special through this beautiful transformation from an only child into a big brother. She offered cooking and some cleaning which took any stress away. She made some lovely healing potions for perenium care and shared knowledge about wrapping too!

 

I definitly will hire Rukiyah if i have any more babes!!
