You have a busy schedule, and you can find good information on just about anything birth-related online. You don't need someone to present you with every single thing there is to know about birth, you need someone to help you figure out what pieces of information matter to you, and what decisions during labor, birth, and early parenting are most important to you. Rather than focused on preparing you for only one way of giving birth, our childbirth classes are focused on preparing you for navigating your labor and birth so that in the end you can feel proud of your decisions, your choices, and your outcomes. We support all birth decisions because they are YOUR decisions.
We just wrapped up a personalized child birth class with Rachel and we are so happy with the decision to work with Rachel in a personal setting. Rachel was warm, open, and honest as well as being informative and helpful. We were glad to be able to ask all our questions without fear of monopolizing group time and customize a class that focused on areas where we needed more information. If we find that we could use the services of a postpartum doula, we will immediately call Rachel. She was comfortable to have in our house right from the beginning--and I'd encourage you not to fuss about "being presentable" for a "stranger." We currently have construction going on in multiple rooms and chaos everywhere. She didn't bat an eye." -K. McQuillin, Albany
