Testimonial for Rachel Scienski, CD(MMCI)

We found Rachel through Birthways. The nutshell version is that we adored her and credit the beauty of our birth experience to her influence. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Rachel was amazingly supportive and knowledgeable at all of our pre-birth meetings. She was thoughtful in listening to our concerns and addressing them in a way we could both understand and apply to preparing for the birth of our daughter. If we ever had questions she was justa  text or phone call away and always responded to us within the hour, if not sooner.

The morning I went into labor Rachel responded to our texts and phone calls immediately and when the time came, was at our house in under 30 minutes. I labored at home for a few hours with her and her help and support made what had previously been an uncomfortable experience incredibly bearable. She coached my husband in ways to help me labor so he could be part of the experience.

When we got to the hospital Rachel continued to be wonderful with the coaching. My husband wanted to deliver our daughter so Rachel stayed up with me and coached me through the contractions. We were fortunate in that our daughter was born within 90 minutes of arriving at the hospital. Given the speed of her arrival I’m so glad we had Rachel there to help us navigate the birth experience.

Our post-partum meeting with Rachel was also great. We struggled with the nursing relationship and found her suggestions and input to be very helpful in that area. We were sad when we realized it was our last meeting with her! If we decide to have another child Rachel will be the first call we make!

On an entirely personal note, Rachel has a wonderful sense of humor and is one of the most nurturing people I’ve ever met. You can’t go wrong with her as your Doula!
