Serving Families in Maine since 2000
As an active all Inclusive Doula, Rebecca believes that each birthing couple is unique. She respects the diverse needs of birth by supporting unconditionally. Natural labor, Induction, Cesarean, Surrogacy, High Risk, Home birth and VBAC.
By combining her massage skills, Spinning Babies® training , and years of birth journeys, she will guide you towards a calm grounded and informed atmosphere where birth can unveil it's path. Birthing how and where you choose, safely. Birth is a balance in discovering the layers and power within, which in turn helps to creates the strong foundation for family and parenthood.
After the journey of pregnancy and labor support Rebecca continues her doula support with each client navigating the beginning of the 4th trimester, addressing your bodies changes, the joy and challenges.
Gentle guidance towards lactation goals, instruction in infant massage techniques, belly binding/care, and looking at your new role(s) . We will also be working on self care, and goals that are personal to your growth as a new parent.
Rebecca has attended births at most of the Maine Hospitals and including York Hospital, MA, NH, the Ballard House and home births.
For the past 18 years Rebecca had hosted the monthly informational Doula Teas at different locations in Portland Maine featuring professional speakers on all aspects of pregnancy, birth, postpartum and infant care. This service has discontinued for now, once it is safe to be together I hope to resume the Teas'.
Rebecca is continuing to see patients at her Yarmouth office with the CDC COVID-19 protocols in place. She specializes in Prenatal, Postpartum, and Infant Massage.
In 2020 she became a Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner, further educating herself in the practice of physiology before force, this practice allows baby to move into a optimal position for a quicker delivery. As always providing massage as adjunctive health care for the whole family. Rebecca resides in North Yarmouth with her husband and two children. Family, nutrition, running, swimming and Yoga keep her grounded and energized to share in your birth journey.
Once our journey begins I am committed to your health and the well-being of you, your partner and your growing family...
Connecting to your changing body in all stages of life
