Rachel is worth her weight in gold! We absolutely loved being able to work with her, and felt really lucky to have her as a doula for our first birthing experience. She is warm, kind, reliable, creative, quick-thinking, assertive, and experienced- exactly the kind of person we wanted on our team when trying to have a natural Hypnobabies birth in a hospital setting. (Note- she's a Hypnobabies instructor, and her expertise with Hypnobabies was really great to have).
Rachel is a super hypnobabies doula. Our experience with her was smooth all the way.
My daughter's birth was filled with surprises, and was very long. I don't know what we would have done with out the support and information Rachel provided us with during T's arrival. With knowledge, and her on-call resources, we were able to avoid several interventions that were discussed. She was an invaluable support to my husband, and respectful of all of our plans. Rachel kept our families up to date so we could stay in our bubble (of peace.)
Rachel was AWESOME!! I needed to hire a last minute Doula for our daughter and she stepped right up to the plate!! She didn't miss a beat and was there for the delivery and offered amazing support. She provided kind support with love and compassion for the situation. Being that we live out of state this was a difficult time for us and she provided comfort not only to our daughter, but to us as well being so far away. She had ongoing resources for us and provided us with a provider of Placenta Encapsulation and Lactation support as well. I could not have asked for a better angel to be sent our way to assist in giving our grandson the best possible start!! I work in the birth and mental health field and know that Rachel is by far and premium example of those that work in our industry. Thank you, Rachel.
Rachel is a knowledgable, compassionate and creative birth worker who so tenderly walks with families throughout their unique birth experiences. Her classes leave families feeling empowered and at peace. Her presence is uplifting and authentically caring. Rachel brings authenticity, creative solutions and unwavering support to those she works with and to the birth community.
Rachel Coughlin with The Chick Around the Corner was a wonderful doula and pregnancy coach. Her calm joyful approach to the birthing process and her knowledge made her a perfect fit for our family. She's also is versed in Hypnobabies. All in all she made it a wonderful experience!
Awesome down to earth chick! Great knowledge of the Hypnobabies program. Very calm and comfortable setting while working with her.
Rachel is a conscientious and reliable birth worker interested in the whole health and wellness of the mother, baby, and family. She's also fun and sweet! A great package. Its an honor to work with her.
I currently have a 7.5 month old son. About a year ago I had started searching for a doula that I felt could support me at my birthing time. I was very interested in hypnobabies so I went on their website to find a local doula- Rachel was the closest one available- so I decided to call and feel out the energy and get some questions answered. From the moment I got on the phone, I knew she was meant to be my Doula. I instantly felt a connection, and had to meet her. When we did, we both lost track of time because of the ease to our conversations and the immediate comfort and support I felt. Some background for you- my strong recommendation comes of high value. I myself am a pelvic floor physical therapist- helping women with their pregnancies and postpartum is what I do for a living- so I’m not just the lay person that is amazed by a brand new experience- I am very knowledgeable and well versed in this arena- Rachel not only supported my foundation, but guided me into one of the hardest and most beautiful experiences of my life. I tear as I type this because I feel she is truly working through divine and beautiful energy. Her compassion and experience is immediately evident. In my weakest moments, Rachel said the most important things to me that 100% allowed me to endure my dream of natural childbirth. I will never forget the words she softly and calmly spoke in my most vulnerable moments. I without hesitation will hire her for every future baby I bring into this world with my husband (who also adored her and found her amazing) She is worth far more than what she charges, and I strongly recommend the package with the photography- she captured moments I will cherish forever. If your considering a doula, or especially the hypnobabies program- seek no further than this wonderfully supportive human. Everything you want and need in a doula is within her.
Let's see, How do I start a review that involves one of the most meaningful time of my life.
We originally picked Rachel as our doula because we were interested in a natural Hypnobabies birth, but that unfortunately was not in the cards for us. We ending up needing just about every medical intervention possible (induction due to pre-eclampsia, epidural, c-section, and more), and Rachel was a rock star through out everything. She was such a positive and calming presence and provided much needed support to dad and baby while mom was unavailable. We could not be more grateful that Rachel was with us on this beautiful but difficult day. We would highly recommend her if you are hoping for a natural birth or not!
Having Rachel as our doula was a huge help and comfort to me as a first time dad. Her professionalism, knowledge and communication are excellent. Just as important she is very sweet, easy to talk to and comforting.
My husband and I chose Rachel, after meeting with several doulas, because although they all have different styles, we were most comfortable with her. She is awesome, and after educating us about her role, it was such a pleasure having her there to support us, before, during and after this miracle of life.
Rachel is AMAZING! We attended Rachel's Hypnobabies course and also hired her as our doula.
Absolutely love Rachel, she's so passionate and knowledgeable from pregnancy to postpartum. She's fabulous with Hypnobabies, and overall just well versed in the welfare of mom and baby.
Rachel is an outstanding doula and provided our family with great knowledge and support throughout our pregnancy. She is kind and patient, and really made our experience from birth education all the way through to the delivery of our baby a joyful time. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for care and support during your pregnancy journey.
