Sarah Gold

Rebecca worked with us both prenatally and postpartum.  Her compassionate care during the delicate early postpartum period was invaluable.  She took initiative to support our family in ways we didn't even realize we needed support.  She has countless practical and actionable suggestions for self-care, breastfeeding, and sleep. She also provided specific referrals and resources, including to an acupturist who takes my insurance.  Rebecca was a grounding presence for us as we anticipated the birth of our baby and continued to keep us grounded as we navigated those long and often overwhelming first days and weeks after birth. We are so grateful for her and would highly recommend her to other expecting parents!

Rebecca was at my son’s birth this past November and I would greatly recommend her as a doula. She was supportive, kind, punctual - she arrived very quickly even on Thanksgiving day, not even getting to eat her meal. She helped me with pain relief measures (I particularly liked the heated rice sock and how willing she was to fetch me water and ice and whatever else I needed), and supported me in my decisions at the hospital, supplied with me information when I needed it and was there for me throughout the entire labor and after, in addition to supporting me in several pre-natal meetings.  She has also been very supportive following the birth, helping with breastfeeding, and caring for the baby while I rest, as well as helping us with finding and connecting us to things we need and information, as we are new to the country and this is our first baby.  She is very kind, patient and an exceptional person. 

I recommend her 100% for everyone and you will not regret hiring her!
