Racheal was amazing throughout my pregnancy, labor, and beyond. She answered all of my questions and made me feel educated and comfortable. When I unexpectedly fell and broke my ankle at 36 weeks, Rachael was there to keep me confident and positive. She helped guide me through a birthing center birth on the first day that I could walk in a boot in 5 weeks. I could not have done that without her help! She continued to be there for me and my family through the intense and amazing transition during the postpartum period. I can’t recommend Racheal enough!

Towards the end of my third pregnancy I risked out of my birth center, sending us on a roller coaster ride of finding new care, big decisions, and preparing for an induction at the hospital. I knew we needed help. Rachael was like an angel that came into our lives to help us navigate through each step ending in a beautiful, empowering birth. Rachael is an amazing listener, helping me work through my own thoughts and emotions. She is incredibly informed on all things birth, baby, and beyond. She knew exactly how to support me physically during labor, what positions to try, and when to step back and let me and my partner be. I wish every woman could have Rachael's support during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum!

Rachael was my doula for the birth of my second baby in July 2022. I moved to Texas late in my pregnancy & really wanted a doula, her & I clicked so fast. She is very reassuring & understanding of what you want your birth to look like. She helped me have the natural water birth I wanted. She is so supportive of pregnancy, birth & the 4th trimester after birth! She knows so much about birth & is willing to go above & beyond to find out information for you when you're lost in the world of having 2 babies under 2! She went out of her way to find me a pelvic floor therapist that took my insurance when I was ready to give up! I really appreciate everything she has done for me, she's always willing to answer questions & she is also a very genuinely nurturing person. If you're looking for a doula definitely have a conversation with her!

From the moment we hired Rachael, our pregnancy/birth/postpartum experience improved tenfold. She checked in regularly, was kind and flexible, and sent so many fantastic resources our way. Her priority was making sure we felt supported in every way. I'm a first time mom and Rachael navigated my anxiety like a champ- warm, professional and empowering. If she didn't know an answer to something, she'd ask someone who did. She interacted wonderfully with my husband who was clueless about most things birth/baby and empowered him without pushing or belittling. We'd hire her again in a heartbeat!

I will never have another baby without a doula, specifically without Rachael. Even though this was my second labor and I had done a LOT of mental preparation for it, the comfort of having her encouraging, calm, informed presence was invaluable. I found that at certain points throughout my labor, particularly at the end when I was transitioning and starting to struggle mentally, having Rachael there to say, "This is normal. This is okay. You're one contraction closer to meeting your baby!" was exactly what I needed. Physically, I definitely know she helped me labor faster and more efficiently. She was great at suggesting different labor positions and providing counter pressure during contractions, and she was at hand when I needed her and unobtrusive and quietly encouraging when I needed a break. My husband has also said that we will not have another baby without Rachael. As I moved through early labor, he was ready for her to arrive before I was; he needed her affirmations just as much and maybe even more than I did. We are incredibly, incredibly grateful for her expertise and kindness. She did the work to understand my particular pregnancy and complications, my previous birth trauma, and my relationships with my partner and medical providers. We had a redemptive, joyful, amazing birth experience this time and I credit a huge part of our success to her contributions and support.

I highly recommend Rachel for any of your doula needs, pre/post birth and labor. My pregnancy was a bit different and more complicated as I was a gestational carrier (I carried a baby for an amazing couple, their embryo) so Rachel had an extra person to worry about during labor. She expertly cared for me as the birthing person, my husband and the mother of the child. She stuck with me and supported us all through a long labor and even assisted the midwife with different positions to get baby into birth canal. After 36 hours I made the decision for a C-section (Rachel helped me be at peace with this medically necessary decision through follow up visits) but Rachel was able to make sure that all three of us were comforted during the surgery. Without Rachel the mother of the baby told me she would have been to the level of a panic attack, but Rachel was able to calm and support her through this unexpected and scary time. Rachel also supported me post partum. Even without a newborn, this support was much needed after surgery as my husband had to go back to work. She not only helped with physical work, but again her company and calm spirit helped me process and heal mentally and emotionally as well.

My labor and delivery experience was much easier and relaxing thanks to Rachael. Even though I had a long labor (48 hours), Rachael NEVER left my side and kept encouraging me.  She is such a great supporter and she knows exactly what she is doing. She always made sure me and my baby came first. She never was hesitant about anything and was very confident!! I'm so glad I chose Rachael to be my doula! It was amazing building a bond with her! She really made my labor 10x better. To this day she still is very helpful and sends tips!!! I highly recommend Rachael Ibarra!!! Absolutely LOVED her and her service:)

I have only positive things to say about Rachael. She always knew the right time to step in. When my husband supported me through labor she stood close but did not intervene when unnecessary. When he stepped away or needed a break, she swooped in effortlessly and provide me all of the support I needed. She was level headed and kept her compose but was also compassionate and empathetic, offering assurance when needed. She was extremely knowledgeable and worked well with our midwife group. Following the birth she continued to provide great care and connected us with a wonderful lactation consultant. I will absolutely be reaching out to Rachel to assist with our next birth.
