Rachel Birth & Postpartum Doula

Rachel is committed to helping women and their families attaining the best possible personalized birth experiences, recognizing that there is not “right” way to give birth; because every birth experience is unique and every birthing space is sacred. Her goals as a birth doula include helping new parents build their confidence, making sure their needs are being met, supporting new families, and especially empowering the birthing person and they make their journey into parenthood, and providing evidence based birth and postpartum care. She is also a big proponent in using humor in her work, and getting that oxytocin going with a bit of humor.

Rachel trained at a DONA International approved workshop in February of 2018. She also was a part of the Doula Love Mentorship program and taking a Postpartum Doula Training at the Birthingway College of Midwifery. She regularly attends new Moms groups at Portland Doula Love, and runs her own at the Oregon City Public Library. After getting her Associate of Arts degree she took Collaborative Practice Doula training at OHSU with Jesse Remer. She also volunteers monthly with the Gateway Doula Group. She has attended hypnobirthing and birth fit classes.

Rachel’s passions beyond birth include enjoying a night at home with her partner Kyle, brewing a cup of coffee or tea, or being out for a solo hike in the Portland Metro area. Rachel is a lover of animals, and enjoys horseback riding, and playing with her pet rabbit Gizmo. Rachel also has an interest in flower essences, micro-housing solutions, aquaponics, and handwork.
