Doulas | Livonia, MI
The decision to become a doula was an easy one for me. My whole life, I always wanted to be a mom. I was born with a deep desire to take care of an nurture other people. It took a lot longer than my husband and I had planned to make that dream come true. So we adopted our oldest two sons when they were 6 and 7. Shortly after that, my first biological son was born. Sixteen months later, our second biological son was born. Four kids in two years. We certainly had our prayers answered! Having been given the gift of experiencing childbirth, it made me realize how strong a womans body really is. So becoming a doula felt right. Birth shouldn’t be scary and feared but rather embraced and enjoyed. My goal is to offer compassion, understanding, knowledge and evidence based advice during your birth journey. Support for the partner is important as well! Please check out all of the services offered including placenta encapsulation and apothecary for pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
I look forward to hearing from you!

"When I first decided to pursue placenta encapsulation I had a lot of questions. Rachel helped answer all of them and allowed me to take my time and do my own research. She made the process so easy - she picked up my placenta from the hospital in a super timely fashion and dropped them off at my home--easy peasy! My milk supply has been tremendoulsy better than after my first and I attribute that to the placenta pills! She also took time to check in on me and my family, even stopping for a moment to share kind words with my toddler, which really stood out to me as most people focus on the baby post partum. Rachel understands that mom and the other family members need consideration as well. Highly recommend Sun Stand Still Doula Services for all of your birth and postpartum needs!" ~Heather T.
“Rachel is amazing!! I’m so glad my husband and I had her with us during our birth. Our little Liam decided he wanted to come a month early and during the first big snow storm of the year. We had no idea he was going to come early. Rachel came to the hospital to be close to us if we needed her at a moments notice. She was such a vital piece of our team. She helped me achieve my totally natural birth, something I never thought I could do. ♡ thank you Rachel!!!!” ~ Leanna Cromwell
“I have been taking 3 pills a day since I have received them. I was really impressed with the packaging. I loved the umbilical cords you shaped into a heart. It is fascinating to look at all the veins that connected the twins and I and the tea baths were a cute surprise. What I appreciated the most was how hard you worked and went out of the way to encapsulate for me when I know I was very last minute. I hope to use more of your services in future pregnancies.” ~ Jessica O.
“Rachel is an amazing doula….I was in labor for 2.5 days and she stayed connected with me during the whole processes. I wanted to have an all natural VBAC and she believed in me that this was possible! During my transition phase when I wanted to give up….she prayed with me and God heard us because the baby arrived a half hour later!! I could not have done it without Rachel by my side! I was so blessed to achieve my goal of having an all natural VBAC! So grateful that God led me to her and she was able to be my doula. I highly recommend her!! She is a beautiful person inside and out….she will make your birthing experience a memorable one!! I plan on having her for my third baby as well!” ~Michelle R.
“This amazing woman who I am blessed to call a dear friend was a breath of fresh air to have in my delivery room! During labor when I started throwing up she didn’t skip a beat and immediately brought out her peppermint oil to help. She had many techniques to help me out when it became crucial to do different positions to get baby to descend more. Plus she provided some fun as well! Anyone looking for an amazing doula you have one right here in Rachel! Thanks for an enjoyable birthing experience my dear!” ~Gretchen P.
