I met Rain at 32 weeks pregnant and our connection was instant. I can't tell you how much this woman means to me even though we knew each other a short amount of time. The care, love and connection she shares with you along with all of the knowledge is priceless. Through out our meetings she listened to what I wanted for my ideal birth experience and reassured me that she would advocate for that path, but also helped me to understand that if we veered from it that that was okay too. She was flexible and was able to come over the day I started contracting and she guided me at home until it was time to go to the hospital. I had a very intense 32 hour labor and she was by my side looking into my eyes with support I needed especially toward the end when I had to break from my natural path and get a c-section due to the situation. I never felt alone, she was always there and I knew this even when I was turned internally battling my own storm. Thank you, Rain! I couldn't have done this without you <3

I don’t know what I would have done w/o the support that Rain provide for me.During my pregnancy I knew I needed extra support. FTM w/ high expectations for my birth plan, high risk pregnancy & I had unfortunate circumstances that caused me to be w/o my OBGYN. I WAS SAVED, I hired Rain on my DD! I had Prodromal labor & she was so patient w/ me, guiding me through what I thought was going to be it!She was there every time I needed her!When contractions started she gave me the right tools to count & concentrate. She also provided me w/ reassurance of the decisions I made. During Full on labor, Rain was there to help me concentrate & breathe through the contractions.
Gave me directions to help ease the pain such as rotating on birthing ball/walk/switching positions etc all helped me through contractions & keep my mind focused .
I had back labor due to baby being PO. I honestly don’t know what I would have done w/o her. She taught my SO how to do back compressions & counter pressure. They both rotated applying pressure! When my water broke I freaked out & Rain was there to comfort me & remind me what my body was doing. When the moment got heavy & contractions turned into bearing down at the wrong time, Rain was my rock!! She stared straight into my eyes, help me focused, encouraged me & helped me breath properly. I personally tried So hard to have a natural birth but unfortunately towards the end I had to have medical interventions, my daughter was born via emergency cesarean 32+ hrs of labor Rain stayed w/ me through the entirety of my labor supported my decisions in attempting an all natural & unmedicated birth. I highly recommend Rain to anyone who is looking for support during labor & birth!! She will be your STRENGTH & I Am SO grateful for Rain & everything she has done for us.

For my first pregnancy I knew I wanted to have a doula. I was so stressed out worrying about every little thing. Was I going to squish my baby? Can I sleep on my back? What about decaffinated black tea? I did all the research. I googled more than I ever should. And I always found myself more stressed than I was before I started my google excursions. Rain was my saving grace. She was so patient and responsive to all of my silly questions. She had so much knowledge on everything I asked her. Should I encapsulate my placenta? What are the benefits? And where can I get that done. Rain was a breath of fresh air. Which is much needed for a first time mom with high anxiety.
