Margo Karmin


Rachael saved us when our twins were a week old! She provided the perfect balance of support, care and tenderness we needed as new, sleep deprived parents.  Rachael has a gift in being able to provide overnight care to babies and their parents.

Lucy Drummond


Rachael was an absolute lifesaver! She began helping us the night we arrived home from the hostpital, and it was worth every penny. Rachael was so loving with Artie, quickly attuned to his needs, communicated very well with him, and helped us so much as first time parents. She was punctual, reliable, commnicative, and overall very satisfying to deal with. We are so grateful for her help, and recommend her highly!

Ashley Bouffard


Rachael arrived at the perfect moment--just as surges intensified. She was completely in sync with the rhythm of labor and our environment. She reminded me to stay calm, stay open, in control of my breath and used different comfort measures to ease through transition. She was there for me both physically and mentally, especially during the pushing phase when I needed water, a cold cloth, or hand (arm) to squeeze.

After my daughter was born she reminded me that everything was okay with my baby each time I asked. Rachel took pictures and stayed with me after the birth until we were all settled in.

I'm eternally grateful to have had her on my team. Her strength, intuitive guidance, and support enabled me to achieve the VBAC I’d dreamed of. We now view Rachael as family--she was my rock when I was most vulnerable and helped make one of the most important days of my life even more wonderful than I could've imagined.
