About me

Hi! My name is Rachel Freedman and I’m here to help you with all things baby! I am a certified childbirth educator and doula! Currently, I am a student at Simmons University studying Public Health, and I am set to graduate in December of 2023. I fell in love with doula care due to its caring and relationship-driven nature. I am here for you, to be the helper that you need during this life-changing experience. My birth philosophy is that pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood is the experience of a lifetime that you have the ability to shape. You are in charge of your pregnancy, your birth, and your baby. I am simply here to provide physical, emotional, and informational support.
