That same year, Heywood Hospital ranked the lowest in C-Sections out of 47 Massachusetts Hospitals compared by WBUR in their report on statewide childbirth statistics.

Our goal in childbirth has always been for a natural delivery, and with Rebecca’s help, we were able to achieve that goal. Her vast knowledge of pain management, fetal positioning, and mediation with the hospital staff is what allowed us to bring our son into the world naturally. When our pregnant friends tell us they are considering having a doula, we tell them about our wonderfully positive experience with Rebecca and how, without her, my labor wouldn’t have been the same.

Rebecca was an incredible support for us before, during, and after the birth of our first child. She helped educate us about the many procedure choices and helped me become confident in my ability to have a natural birth. She was always available and happily answered endless questions via email, phone, and text. Rebecca helped coach me through the pain and seemed to always know the right things to say and positions to move into... I could not have done it naturally without her! Now after our son’s birth she’s been in touch to make sure we are doing well, still available for questions. My husband tells everyone how incredible it was working with her; she helped him coach me and deal with the stress of the birth as well. We VERY highly recommend working with Rebecca!
