Frequently Asked Questions
"Rachel is worth her weight in gold! We absolutely loved being able to work with her, and felt really lucky to have her as a doula for our first birthing experience. She is warm, kind, reliable, creative, quick-thinking, assertive, and experienced - exactly the kind of person we wanted on our team."
"As a doula, Diana Hirsch was a crucial part of my birth experience. She helped my husband and me get through the hardest (and most rewarding) thing we have ever done. She knew exactly what to say, what to do, and how to support us both throughout a long and intense labor, delivery, and recovery. She was my advocate when I needed my voice to be heard, the calm in the midst of a storm, and my strength when I felt at my weakest. She literally held our hands every step of the way."
"We weren’t sure about using a doula at first but I will now be using one for every future pregnancy. She provided so much emotional and physical support during the process! She was also a strong advocate for me and helped me avoid having to get a c section because my labor was going so long. I really can’t say enough about how amazing Diana is!"
"Diana was there for us when we really needed a calming presence, rational guidance, and an advocate. If that wasn’t enough, she is also an amazing photographer and was able to collect images and videos that captured so many details we wouldn’t otherwise have had. She was also extremely helpful with postpartum guidance and encouraged us to focus on the important things, while letting us know that most of what we were experiencing was completely normal. I can’t imagine a better doula to have by your side."
"Diana oozed passion, confidence, wisdom & compassion. I texted and called with questions, concerns, doubts, fears and just to complain and she always attentively responded with such knowledge and tenderness. She was fierce when I needed her to be and advocated for my unique experience (2 day labor). She took control and pulled out all of her spinning baby tricks and helped me have the unmedicated VBAC I had been dreaming of! We felt completely comfortable and trusted her guidance due to her extensive experience, training and passion for (evidence based) birth. We would choose her over and over again."
