I started working with Becca pretty early in my first trimester. I was a nervous wreck because I had miscarried my pregnancy prior. Best decision I made for myself and my baby! Becca's support brought an ease and confidence to the table that allowed me to move through my pregnancy and actually enjoy it! I labored for 40 hours and in that time period had to make a lot of decisions. Rebecca made sure I understood and was making the best choices for me throughout it all. My daughter is now 10 weeks old and I am still receiving wellness checks and support! I'd 100% recommended Becca to any excepting moms !!

Rebecca was absolutely perfect! She was so supportive for both me and Jacob! She helped me stick to my birth plan when it got hard and I wanted to quit. She literally held me up while I gave birth. She vibed so well with us and it was so special to have her as part of our team. She has been supportive after birth, helping me with any concerns and questions. She has such a positive personality. Jacob and I are so glad we had her support. My labor could not have gone any better.
