Rebeca attended the birth of my son. I can't put into words how valuable her presence was! She intuitively knew what I needed, even before I did at times, and her calm and steady demeanor and touch helped to anchor me as I relaxed into the rhythm of labor. She respected and supported my birth plan. It was incredibly comforting to know that if plans changed and we had to go to the hospital, Rebeca would be there to advocate on my behalf and ensure that my wishes were followed to the best of her ability. This knowledge allowed me to release the stress of "what if" and truly surrender. My son was born at home, and it was wonderful! Rebeca played an integral part of that process and I will be forever grateful to her for being by my side during that life changing experience!
My husband and I met Rebeca for the first time in the delivery room as the doctors were starting my induction. She was the back-up for our doula. As fate would have it, another one of our doula's clients was induced that same day, and our doula needed to be with them. I was nervous to invite a stranger to the birth of our child, but Rebeca was amazing! Her gentle spirit and calm demeanor were a perfect fit for us. I am certain her suggestions for position changes and reminders to relax are the reason I was able to labor and deliver without an epidural or pain meds. We are so grateful that she was present for our special day and consider her part of our family. I highly recommend Rebeca's services and know any family would be lucky to call her their doula.
Rebeca is hands down an amazing doula! I gave birth to my first child in May 2021. I was terrified of so many things; what to expect during labor, how to cope with the pain, how to get my mindset right to push, how the hospital would respect my birth plan, the list went on. Rebeca met with me several times to learn about me, what my labor and delivery birth wishes were, and helped develop a birth vision. I could text or call her at anytime to ask any questions. No matter how small or silly it sounded, she put my mind at ease. Now, the morning of my labor… she was at my house immediately after letting her know labor started. We labored at home for a while until I felt it was time to go to the hospital. While at home and at the hospital, Rebeca kept me calm and gave me exercises to help with the labor pain. Rebeca worked so well with the hospital staff. They made such a great team, they even thanked her for being there. We tried different positions to help my baby girl come out. We used essential oils for nausea. Again, Rebeca respected all of my requests during labor. Whatever I needed, she was there. Rebeca didn’t stop at that… she continued to support me postpartum with frequent check ins. I honestly can’t imagine going through this birth and postpartum without her.
Beyond Rebeca’s doula services, she also does photography. She respectfully requested my permission to photograph my labor and delivery. I let her know what I was comfortable with and she never violated our agreement. I am SO thankful I stepped out of my comfort zone because those photos were nothing short of beautiful! Pictures that I thought I would cringe at, gave me happy goosebumps. They are once in a lifetime memories that I’m forever thankful she captured. Thank you Rebeca!
I cannot say enough nice things about Rebeca! This was my third child, but my first time attempting a homebirth. I wanted to have someone that could help support me and my husband during this process. We found that and so much more. Rebeca is incredibly passionate, kind, and knowledgeable. She is very open and easy to talk to. It was great to have someone who I felt truly cared about me and what I needed. She had so many wonderful insights and suggestions that helped me before, during, and after delivery. It was nice to see her interact with our kids and blend in with our family. Rebeca showed up in the middle of the night for labor and helped with my pain and our kids. She not only provided amazing support - she was our photographer as well! The pictures were high quality and professional. I know if I ever have another the only person I could think of having as our doula is Rebeca. There are not enough words to express how thankful and blessed we are to have her in our lives.
Rebeca is a kind and caring soul. She truly loves what she does and is incredibly passionate about birth. The way I ended up meeting Rebeca was through complete luck, and I feel so blessed that she helped me navigate such a sensitive territory. I ask a lot of questions and she was always supportive and quick to provide us with educational resources. She was also really big on making sure I knew how to advocate for myself, which is not always easy when you’re doing a hospital birth. My pregnancy journey ended up having some unexpected hiccups and Rebeca went above and beyond and was such an emotional anchor for me. I couldn’t recommend her enough!
