Testimonial for Rachel Carbonneau, CD(DONA)

My husband and I took the Bradley Birth Class with Rachel. I can say so many things about how this class helped us prepare for the birth of our child, but the most important thing that we gained was the support of knowledgeable birth educator and doula. She helped to make my husband feel comfortable and be supportive and helpful on the big day. She answered every question imaginable: everything we wanted to know and everything we didn't know we wanted to know about pregnancy and labor preparation.

Most importantly, Rachel helped us through the unexpected challenges of pregnancy. At 36 weeks, it became clear that our baby was not planning to flip from her breech position, which was highly distressing as the birth center midwives immediately referred us to their partner hospital to schedule a trial version and C section. Versions are not known for their high success rate. I was terrified. I did not want a C section. Rachel offered support and advice on versions, the best chiropractors in the area to administer the Webster Technique to get the baby to turn without a version, and if all else failed the best midwives and drs for a breech birth. She was extremely supportive of our choices and decisions and made us feel empowered to make the right choice for our situation. And this is what we needed most. With this support, we were able to find a good doctor to perform the version, which because of the amazing chiropractic care was an immediate success. Rachel's support during this whole process was invaluable.

Rachel is well connected in the community, so she knows many doctors and chiropractors in the area and she can direct you to the best fit for your situation and personality. She goes so far above and beyond being just a birth class instructor. You know she has your back every step of the way. We are so grateful and we highly recommend her both as a birth class instructor and a doula.
