Testimonial for Rachel Carbonneau, CD(DONA)

Choosing Rachel to be our Doula was the single best decision my husband and I made in preparation for the birth of our first child.

Rachel was great during the early visit we had and provided a lot of great information and guidance during our 36 week visit on laboring at home, things to think about in preparation for delivering in the hospital and the first few days/weeks at home.

We ended up having a very long labor and delivery and Rachel was there to support us every step of the way. She was readily available on the phone during the early stages of the labor to help support us and as soon as we requested, she met us at the hospital. Rachel was not only a great emotional support, but had wonderful advice for things I wouldn’t have otherwise known to ask for – for example: positions to try when laboring and pushing, questions to ask providers when they suggested induction medications and potential alternatives to try. Rachel’s support was also incredibly helpful when my husband needed to get some sleep or get food so he could sustain his support for me, but not feel like he was leaving me alone. Note from husband—I felt like I could really get some much-needed carefree sleep with Rachel looking out for my wife.

Rachel was a wonderful emotional and intellectual presence; she brought so much knowledge, support, and, above all, positivity. She helped us navigate some tough decisions during our birth. We cannot imagine how the birth would have gone without her and are so grateful we did not have to find out. We have also already personally recommended her to friends of ours who are expecting.
