Happy Parents

What a truly amazing day!

Rachel embodied the strength, aliveness and knowledge I’d been dreaming of in my pregnancy. I learned and experienced so much. It was such a beautiful bonding experience with my husband and baby.

I’m looking forward to my birth even more now!

I want to compliment Rachel’s amazing time management, and balance of professionalism with warmth. I loved the detailed email I received before class and how Rachel kept the class on track and on time. Rachel is clearly a highly skilled practitioner and educator, AND a kick-ass business woman!

Lis G.

Rachel’s class got me balanced and centered for birth AND life.

Through Rachel’s class, my partner and I connected.. I mean really connected. Instead of just going through our pregnancy on autopilot we became even more aware, conscious, and mindful of who are as a couple and, of course, even more connected to the little love we created and are bringing into the world.
