My name is Rachel (she/her) and I’m a full spectrum doula. This means that I support people experiencing a spectrum of transitions such as pre-conception, pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I also support those who are experiencing pregnancy loss, and those who desire a deeper connection with their fertility and hormones.

My journey with this work started with my own birth story. My mother had an intense labor, delivering me at home with the help of a midwife. After growing up hearing the story of my birth and later living with a midwife who became a good friend, I realized that I was longing to attend births and support transformations.

My interests and passions have always been aligned with doula care, which allows me the creative freedom to find special ways to support my clients. I love incorporating things like delicious meals and moody rituals into my offerings and will collaborate with my clients to customize care specific to their unique needs and desires.

I'm committed to celebrating authentic emotions by reducing stigma around the word “moody” and embracing the full spectrum of feelings that come during hormonal shifts. I believe in offering trauma informed care and providing clients with compassionate, intuitive support. Sometimes this might look like asking hard questions.

I am committed to confronting my racial and implicit biases by engaging regularly with anti-racist work and by paying reparations. I believe language is very important and will use phrases like birthing person, menstruating people, bodyfeeding, and so on. I hold myself and others in my field accountable to using inclusive language.

I hold myself and others accountable to a standard of care that respects an individual's choices by advocating for body autonomy and consent. I meet regularly with other doulas in my community to receive care and offer support, and further hold myself accountable to a standard of practice that is peer reviewed by community.

I look forward to supporting you and all your moods as you navigate the waters of being a hormonal being.
