Testimonial for Rachel Carbonneau, CD(DONA)

There aren't enough words to describe the unforgettable FANTASTIC experience that I had with Rachel!! I met Rachel late in my 2nd trimester as she was referred to me by an associate of mine. This having been my 3rd pregnancy in three years (first two resulted in miscarriages) and suffering from a blood clotting disorder, I decided to opt for a natural delivery to avoid the risks associated with getting an epidural. I also wanted to be in a position where I control the delivery and learn to be in tune with my body during the birth. To put it simply, there was NEVER a time where Rachel was not available to me! Between my constant, worrisome phone calls at all times of the day/night, she never complained and was always prepared to answer questions or put me at ease with her soothing tone and genuine care. She asissted me in drafting up a birthing plan to pass along to my doctors and hospital nurses to reinforce my wishes for my labor. The birth of my daughter was perfect! Although time didnt allow us to practice different birthing techniques, when we got to the labor room, it all came so naturally. Every call and scream from the intensity of labor was met by Rachel rubbing my head to help me refocus, massaging my back to soothe the pressure and of course pushing on my glutes as a natural pain reliever. To prove how awesome Rachel is, she even climbed on the bed to push on my glutes...all while being 7 MONTHS PREGNANT! Of course I didnt find out until the day I went into labor but it goes to show just how committed she is to YOU! She was great with involving my fiance and was not overwhelming with her presence; she leaves rooms for your partner and family to enjoy the experience as well. After my daughter was born, Rachel stayed to ensure I was ok and praised me for the fine job I did despite my fears! She made me feel like I was super mom!! I would recommend her to everyone and I am so blessed to have had shared such a happy time in my life with her!!
