Shiquita Jenkins

This was my first baby and Rachael totally made the experience for me and my husband a lot better. She helped us stay calm and reminded us of our opinions when it came to our baby.When you’re in the moment and overwhelmed by everything that is going on it is easy to forget about what you want and the plan you and your husband had laid out, that’s why I’m so grateful she was there to help remind us of everything that is available to us. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a doula.

Rachael was an amazing doula for me. She was patient and caring. I pushed for 4 hours and she’s was by my side the whole time  rooting for me . She had everything I needed and more. She arrived at the hospital with a quick text from me. She also visited us after the baby was born to check on me and baby.Please choose Rachael you will not be disappointed.

Rachael was amazing to say the least. She was there for my every need. She even anticipated my needs and wants. She gave my family the break they very much needed from the long day they had. She was very informative on everything from labor and delivery to breastfeeding and everything postpartum. She did not leave until they transferred me to the recovery room and knew I would be fine. she Stayed in touch with me afterwards and checks up to make sure I am doing well. She was truly an angel. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better.
