Testimonial for Rachel Connolly Kwock, CD(DONA), CLC

 Rachel was incredible to work with. During my pregnancy, she met with us several times and lent us some great books and dvds. She always listened intently and generously to my worries, concerns, fears, and anxieties all without judgment. She truly is an amazing and giving person. I had lots of "early labor," and Rachel counseled me through it all. She did it in the best way, though---never intrusive, but just the right amount of support and care. On the birth day, Rachel was with us from 5am until 11pm. She was terrific at keeping our spirits up and helping me try to cope the best I could with the waves of contractions. We did 9 hours of labor together before I threw in the towel and got the epidural, and even though I'd been vehemently against getting any sort of drugs during the labor, Rachel remained supportive of me and my decision, and we went forward like that had been the plan all along. She helped our nurses when they came in and asked for support. She barely left our sides the entire time. Our son's birthday, which was also her daughter's birthday, was more beautiful because of Rachel's presence. My husband, who had been completely skeptical of getting a doula to work with us at all said it best when he proclaimed during labor, "having Rachel here was the best decision we ever made." Yep, pretty much.
