Postpartum Doula, Lactation Consultant, 

Postpartum and Lactation Educator

Rebekah’s passion in life is nurturing and empowering new parents. She is a DONA certified Postpartum Doula, Newborn Care Specialist, and Certified Lactation Counselor. After graduating with a B.S. in Public Health Education, Rebekah served in Ethiopia as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer.

She began her doula career in 2016 after experiencing her own difficult postpartum and breastfeeding journey. Her goal is to support each family with warmth, compassion, and humility. Her motto is, "It's YOUR baby; I'm here to support YOUR way of parenting."

“Rebekah was an amazing support to me as a new mother of twins, and was incredibly thoughtful and competent at settling two very difficult babies. She worked with my twins for 4 months and was instrumental in helping them learn to sleep through the night. She always came with creative ways to work with the twins who were very poor sleepers. Rebekah has a warm presence- she was a great listener and big encouragement to me staying some mornings late for pep talks and strategy sessions. So grateful to have Rebekah by my side.”
