 Rebecca is SO amazing! We had our first child last year shorty after moving a new area. My husband and I were understandably a little nervous and in the dark with this new life transition. I wanted to hire a doula to help us through the pregnancy, but being in a new and young family, I wasn't sure if that hope was financially feasible. Lucky, I got into contact with this angel of a person and she was more than willing to work with us and our situation. She is so patient, empowering, reassuring, knowledgeable, flexible and kind! We felt so taken care of throughout the pregnancy, labor, delivery, and post partum process. I don't think I would have recovered so well if I didn't hire her (I'm back at my highschool graduation weight!! WHAT?!) Because of her, I was given the support to better take care of myself and my family and to better prepare for motherhood. Honesty she helped so much more than my own mother ever could (bless her heart, she tries). She was such a big help to the development of our family!

Rebecca is a great doula and Bradley Method instructor! My husband and I took private lessons from her and she was also present for my birth. I had a long labor, over 48+ hours, and Rebecca was there the whole time to provide support to me and my husband. We could not have done it without her. While of course not everything went according to my birth “plan” - I was still able to have a vaginal birth and a healthy baby boy. Thank you for being there for us, Becky!

Rebecca is truly so gifted at what she does. She is so much more than just a doula, she is your frinend who truly cares about you and your family. My birth experience was so peaceful because my husband and I took Bradley Method birth classes instructed by Rebecca and had her all along the way with every step. It was such a relief to have such a strong support who knows the ins and outs of birth, also to know more options than what the hospital will give you as well. I highly recommend her for birth and postpartum doula services!

I had a traumatic birth with my first baby and wanted a doula for support. I hoped I would be able to VBAC with my second. Rebecca was amazing! I asked so many questions, she answered them right away without having to 'get back to me'. I needed a lot of handholding, she was great. Reassuring and encouraging me my whole pregnancy. Her communication was stellar, she was always a call or a text away. She helped me make informed decisions, and didn't judge me for any of them either way since some of them were not the most naturally leaning. I unfortunately ended up scheduling my c-section BUT she was there and helped my husband and I tremendously afterwards. She even helped my 2 year old welcome her 'new baby' in her own way. She really helped me have a positive birthing experience despite my being unable to VBAC, it helped me get closure, wouldn't have been possible without her. Thank you!!
