Rebecca attended my recent birth on 5/7/22 and the support she provided was absolutely amazing! We found her pretty late into my pregnancy and though we didn’t have many weeks left she made sure to meet with us to show us the tools she had available and teach us some  pain management techniques that we could practice. She listened carefully to our birth preferences and leant us some books that were very helpful in developing a birth plan and preparing for an unmedicated hospital birth. I was planning a VBAC which Rebecca was very supportive of and she was eager to help advocate for my wishes in the hospital as needed. In the weeks leading up to birth she sent over other helpful resources and helped me craft my birth plan. I ended up having a somewhat long/weird labor- it was ~48 hours from first contractions to birth - and Rebecca stayed in contact with me the whole time, coaching me, helping keep my motivation up, and reassuring me that it was all normal. When my labor picked up suddenly she joined us as soon as we asked her to. In the hospital she was very responsive to my needs, providing different pain relief/comfort measures, coaching my husband, and advocating for our wishes/guiding us through medical decisions. When I ended up having a lengthy and painful tear repair she stayed to help me through that and made sure we were all settled into our room in the mother-baby unit before leaving. She has also checked up on me multiple times since the birth to see how everything is going.

My labor and birth went about as smoothly as I could have hoped for and I feel like Rebecca played a big role in ensuring that happened. It’s not necessarily easy planning a VBAC and I really feel like having her on my birth team was hugely beneficial in successfully achieving that goal. I’m forever grateful for the support she provided before, during, and after birth. She was truly awesome and such an important member of my birth team!!

Hello I just gave birth 03.20.2022 my 2nd full term birth it was another Supernatural delivery pain-free another phenomenal experience praise the Lord. My husband and I decided on a homebirth this time after praying to the Lord for His will we researched a midwife or doula to accommodate our needs as a family of faith to experience the birth God designed women to have I took a leap of faith on an NC homebirth FB Group posting for help in our area and this servant was the only one to respond to our Christian values in childbearing. We highly recommend any mother to book Rebecca of Bearing Precious Seed Birthkeeping. She's understanding, patient, caring, genuine, consistent, active listener, devoted to the needs of the family, personable, reliable, professional and thoroughly knowledgeable about all aspects of delivery. Rebecca answered all of our questions and would provide helpful research, informative videos and was open to how we want each phase of laboring to go especially a prior fast labor with our firstborn it was phenomenal she had an actual homebirth herself to comfort me and understand my peace of mind for minimal pregnancy checkups and ultrasounds at the doctor's. We were prepared for the birth with all necessary supplies recommended by Rebecca and the peace of God each phone conversation, text, email or meeting was reassurance we chose the right birthkeeper for this type of childbirth. I believe any first time mom can benefit from her educational background, hands on approach and blessed experience. Our delivery was smooth, super healthy, unmedicated home birth. Postpartum recovery is going well and I look forward to my 6 week checkup. Do yourself a favor ladies book Rebecca she's our answered prayer for our sweet babygirl. - A GRATEFUL CLIENT
