Ranelle as our Doula: Priceless!
Having Ranelle as our doula, was a priceless experience! Throughout our 33 hours of labor, Ranelle was there every minute. She stood by us with massages, breathing techniques; birthing postures; prayer and moral support just to name a few. Her gentle spirit and vast knowledge put us at ease. We will forever be grateful to of had Ranelle present at the birth of our daughter Luxe and will be sure to have her present for the next.

We knew within moments of meeting with Ranelle that we wanted her to be our birth doula. She has a calm, warm demeanor with buckets of experience to draw from. As a first time mom, I felt reassured knowing she would be part of my birth team. On our birth day, I truly couldn't imagine what the experience would have been like without her being there. She had her bag of tricks ready to go and was on top of everything before I could have even expressed a need for something. With all the excitement and nervousness in the room, hearing her voice grounded me and carried me through a whirlwind birth experience! On top of that, she captured videos and photos of the birth that are priceless. As a first time dad, my husband is incredibly appreciative of all the support Ranelle provided as well. We can't express enough gratitude for what Ranelle did for our family!

I am a Labor & Delivery nurse and worked with and trusted my midwife and nurses. Even so, I am very aware of changing shifts and the demands of other patients. We wanted a constant reassuring support during labor. Someone who is calm and quiet. It was the best decision my husband and I ever made to have Ranelle with us! Ranelle offered great suggestions and kept me calm and focused. We had a beautiful unmedicated hospital delivery. We also treasure the birth pictures she took. Having a doula was our number one best choice for attaining the natural delivery we wanted.

Ranelle has been with me now for all three of my children's births. I cannot imagine birthing without her support. For all of my birth my husband and I both agreed we couldn't have done it without her! Her presence is so calming and reassuring. She is a beautiful and thoughtful support that anyone would be blessed to have in labor and birth. She is calm, and very attentive. She goes above and beyond every time!   Photo (as well as two on front page) credit:  Seasons Hurd Birth Photography

There are not enough words to describe how grateful we are that Ranelle could serve as our doula for both our son’s births. My husband and I both benefited from the prenatal visits, labor and delivery support, and the postpartum checkups. Ranelle has an incredibly calm and  encouraging spirit which was so refreshing leading up to labor and in the delivery room. Her wisdom, knowledge, and experience empowered us to be our own advocate and make decisions that are best for our family. We are so thankful for Ranelle and will forever be connected as she confidently yet humbly walked through the 2 most life changing events of my life. Thank you for your invaluable gift of birth support

I can’t recommend Ranelle highly enough! Her grounded, empathic nature was such a comfort during my pregnancy. Her birthing skills - massage, positioning ideas, coaching - made a drug-free labor more comfortable, and she was such a great support for my husband. It was obvious Ranelle has helped countless women in labor over the past decades, and I had great confidence in my birthing team. And must mention, she is awesome with prenatal massage!

My husband and I really enjoyed using Ranelle as our doula for the birth of our fourth son. When we originally met with her we were planning a hospital birth as we had done with our three previous births, but we weren't thrilled with the choices of healthcare providers in our area. Ranelle talked with us about the option of a home birth, and we quickly decided that was the way to go this time around. We are very thankful for Ranelle educating us and leading us down the home birth path, because it was an amazing experience! During the birth Ranelle worked very cohesively with our midwives and was a joy to be around. Ranelle has a beautiful heart that is easy to see the minute you meet her. She is also very knowledgeable about what she does, and we are very thankful for the opportunity to bring our precious baby boy into the world with her!
