"Rebecca did a great job helping me learn to cope with anxiety before & during labor. My labor/birth was quick that we didn't have time to call her, but through all her dedication and knowledge I was able to have the birth I wanted. I am forever thankful!" -Brooke W
"In our experience, Rebecca Olson can best be described as radiating love for families, and for the beautiful experience that is birth. We knew when we met Becca that she would be able to provide exactly the experience and loving support we would need during the labor and delivery of our first child. We met several times and we really enjoyed learning about her path to becoming a birth doula and how passionate she is about her calling, as well as about her own birth experiences and family. She came armed with a lot of information about comfort measures, relaxation and self-care, and working through labor and delivery. She made us feel so excited about what was to come! When the day finally came for our little to arrive, labor and delivery went in no way as planned or expected, and we were so thankful for Becca's support through a night of ever-changing plans! Becca was an incredible encouragement through several decisions to change our plans and a hands-on coach through an hour and a half of various pushing positions and intense monitoring of the baby. Finally, Becca made me feel safe and comfortable as she stayed by our side during an unplanned cesarean delivery, took photos of my husband and I meeting our son in the OR, and continued to comfort me while I was being stitched up so my husband could care for our son. When we met several weeks later, Becca continued to shower us with love and support, even presenting our son Duncan with a beautiful write-up of his birth story. We look forward to keeping in touch with Becca as she continues to pursue her calling, and to asking for her support again the next time we are planning to have a baby!!" -Sarah and Ben F
"I seriously could not of done this without the help of Rebecca. I'm so glad that I fullfiled the birth that I wanted. After 3 children that were induced I had a natural labor! Becca was such an asset to me not only during labor and delivery but even in pregnancy. She calmed all my fears and when I really started to doubt my body and myself helped me recharge and change my way of thinking. She was there to answer any worries/concerns/questions night or day for me - I'm truly thankful for her as my doula it was an amazing experience!I could have not done it without you lady!" -A & C
"From the moment I met Becca, I felt so comfortable talking with her and opening up to her about my previous natural birth experience in the hospital, my aspirations for my upcoming birth, and my fears and concerns. Knowing that Becca was going to be present for the birth of our second child (a baby girl), along with, my husband, midwife, and birth assistant, I felt so at peace and excited for choosing a natural birth at the birth center.
The weeks leading up to my labor and birth, Becca checked in on me to see how I was doing and gave me great tips and reminders! If I had any questions or updates, Becca was always quick to respond. It was so wonderful that Becca came to my birth center appointments with me and my son! She was always up-to-date on everything going on with my pregnancy, but my son loved having her there! He always looked forward to going to the appointments so he could play with Becca, help take Mama’s blood pressure, and help listen for baby sister’s heartbeat. When baby girl decided to arrive 6 days late, Becca kept encouraging me. Finally when labor arrived, everything went so fast. I was so thankful that Becca made it to the birth center before baby girl was born - the water birth went quickly and amazingly well! Becca did an awesome job with keeping me calm and focused! Becca, thank you so much for your wonderful doula services and being there for me and my family when we needed you! What a special time and so many memories! Thank you!!!" -Jen & Nate
"Becca has beautiful endurance and amazing patience. The energy during our very long first time birthing period was eased between my partner and I due to Becca’s presence. She simply allowed us to be in our necessary realms, while providing a calming support that kept our hopes up when the end seemed out of reach. If you’re looking for a judge free doula that follows and respects your natural flow, look no further. I feel Becca is able to accompany any family style!" -Sheri P
"Becca Empowered me to help make my VBAC dream come true... and it did! It was an honor of US to have her at our birth of Finley." -V & T
"I did not expect labor to be so intense. Rebecca was there just by outside the whole time to help me overcome my anxiety & fear. She was a believer in me, which helped me be at easy of what my body was doing to bring miss C in to the world." -A & J
