Rachel Merritt


Amanda was absolutely essential to my wonderful birth experience. She not only encouraged me emotionally, but also spiritually, helping me to prepare mentally (with confidence) for my upcoming birth. She was very open to my natural birth plan and urged me to press forward with it, even going as far to take me to a Japanese birthing center to explore other options. Extremely knowledgeable and gave me tips for exercises to get my little one in the right position for birth. Incredibly sweet and comfortable to work with (I could go on.) She worked with me all through the birth, putting counter pressure on my back and gently giving advice while strongly supporting my decisions. She also did not take the place of my husband, but encouraged his involvement. I HIGHLY recommend working with her!!!
