meet your doula
Rachael is a dedicated and professionally trained postpartum doula, passionately serving the greater Houston area with a focus on the well-being of new mothers and their children.
Rachael's warm, kind, and empathetic nature enables her to effectively support a diverse range of families. Having experienced two vastly different postpartum journeys with her first two children, she understands the vital importance of providing the care and support that every mother deserves.
"My first postpartum experience was challenging. I struggled to navigate it and didn't know what was normal or how to make this time as special as I believed it should be. With the birth of my second son, however, I was surrounded by friends, food, and a completely different hormonal experience. It was like night and day. That's when I knew I wanted to dedicate my career to supporting others during this precious and transitional phase of life."
