Testimonial for Rachel Scienski, CD(MMCI)

My husband and I met with Rachel, loved her, and hired her. Rachel has a very warm, nurturing, and open personality which I thought would be nice to have with us during labor and delivery. It was important to us that we liked the doula we hired and that she was experienced. Additionally, Rachel is up to date with evidence - based practice while also having experience with more complementary areas of health and well being. We felt that Rachel knew her stuff, would do whatever she could do to support me through childbirth, and would be a strong advocate for an unmedicated birth in a hospital setting if needed. We hired Rachel for my first child's birth in 2014 and were thrilled to be able to hire her again in 2016. Using the word "hire" almost feels wrong; more like we invited her to join us in these birthing experiences. She was an integral part of my positive birth experiences and is a large reason why I was able to have the unmedicated births I had hoped for. Rachel LOVES what she does. When she arrived at the hospital for my second birth she was almost giddy to be there! She (and my husband) rubbed my back tirelessly, relieved my discomfort with heat and cold, kept me hydrated, kept me focused, and kept me feeling strong, confident, and capable. I should also mention that she was a great support for my husband by showing him what he could do to assist and by keeping him company during some of the slower times earlier in labor. He also values Rachel's support and guidance. We just adore Rachel and her contributions to my positive birth experiences are deeply imprinted in my memory.
