She provides unconditional, non-judgmental support, meeting you where you are, offering balanced and educated guidance, and helping you develop a plan that works for you.  She resonates with strong women who may feel anxious about birth or are wanting to do what they can to be more in control on this wild ride that is parenthood.

Whether you know exactly what you want for your pregnancy and birth or if you are still figuring out all of the options to consider, Rachel helps you sort it out and move confidently forward into parenthood.  Having an unbiased ear and an understanding heart to bounce thoughts and feeling off of is critical in finding your way- it empowers you to have the birth you choose, regardless of what unexpected scenarios arise.

Rachel works with families in Eugene, Springfield, and surrounding areas of Lane County, Oregon, and is welcomed to births at Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend, McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center, and the PeaceHealth Nurse Midwifery Birth Center.

With a background in support services and a solid foundation in our local area, Rachel can be relied on to support you while you continue to support your family.  When you hire Rachel, you’ll feel confident in knowing you will have support your way- when you need it and how you deserve it!


“Having Rachel by my side as I labored through 17 hours (including a switch from birthing center to hospital) was invaluable. Her knowledge of, and faith in, the birthing process and her calm, loving support made what could have been a traumatic experience for me beautiful from start to finish.”


“Even with the help of family, the experience would not have been as smooth and pleasant without her assistance.  Rachel made time to come to appointments to meet my OB and came to my home before I went into labor to become familiar with my personal surroundings. She was sweet and personable to my family and worked very well with them in their roles.”
