Client Testimonials for Rachael Phipps

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.
