What People are Saying
The course prepared my wife and me very well for our daughter’s birth, and we liked Rachel so much that we even hired her as our doula!
I HIGHLY recommend this course to any birthing parent and their partner. We left feeling very prepared and more comfortable heading into having our first baby.
My partner and I absolutely loved Rachel's Birth Bootcamp program!
It was so comprehensive, in such an inviting way.
What is the cost of this course?
The virtual group course is $250 per couple or individual. Payment details will be sent to your e-mail inbox.
The course is also available privately via Zoom or in person in the Miami-Dade area for $550.
When is the best time to take this course?
You can participate at any point in pregnancy, but the best time is at the end of your second or early in your third trimester.
This will allow the information to be fresh on your mind, and also ensure you’re prepared in the event of an early birth.
Should my partner or support person join?
Yes, absolutely! We should all be fully informed, and there is plenty of info geared directly toward the support partners. They'll learn the importance of their role and how to step up in the most helpful ways.
If I know I want to get an epidural or be induced, is this class for me?
Yes! This class is universally beneficial for giving birth in any setting. It may be extra helpful in preparing for a hospital birth, as you'll learn how to navigate and advocate in the medical system, as well as become familiar with common medical interventions.
What is the class format?
The course will be given live on Zoom. It is 6 hours, divided into three 2-hour classes. Private courses are offered virtually or in-person in the Miami area.
What if you're at a birth during our scheduled class time?
Since I am an active doula, there is a chance I will be called to a birth during our scheduled class time.
Each class will be assigned a "backup date" in case of a last-minute need to cancel. The backup date will typically be the following week.
Will the class be recorded?
The class will be recorded and accessible to participants for 90 days so you can review and refresh your knowledge before the big day!
Is my payment refundable?
Payment is refundable up to 2 weeks before the class date. If you are registered for a class scheduled within 14 days, payment is non-refundable. If you miss the live class or "backup date", a refund will not be given, but access to the recording is available.
