Rebecca often partners with fellow Bradley Method® teacher Ashley Bennett for Boston-area births. With their combined expertise, they attend all prenatal and postpartum appointments together. At the time of labor, Ashley and Rebecca work to provide Mom and her partner continuous doula support without the drawback of having a tired, worn-out doula or fear of an unforeseen family emergency. Because of their compatibility in personality, style, and in teaching the Bradley Method®, they found their natural partnership to be a service to their clients in providing the best continuous care and support possible.

For Worcester-area births (and some Boston-area births), Rebecca often partners with DONA-certified doula Pamela Gaw. Many years ago, Pam audited Rebecca's class as a doula-in-training. A year later when Pam and her husband were expecting their first child, they took Rebecca's Bradley Method® class.  Their baby boy, Charlie, was born at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA in a very joyful birth! Pam later trained under Rebecca as a doula at Heywood Hospital, and briefly at the Pettaway Pursuit Foundation. Rebecca asked Pam to be her doula for the birth of her 4th, 5th & 6th child.
