Heart and Soul Doula


My name is Rachel Soumekh and I am a certified Birth Doula with DONA and a trained childbirth educator with ICEA


Accompanying women through labor and birth is an honored privilege and an experience I absolutely treasure. Being able to lift her spirits, hold her hand, and provide support and guidance is tremendously rewarding. Of course, the ultimate blessing is embracing and welcoming a new soul into the world.


I have always been fascinated by pregnancy and birth as far back as I can remember. At the age of seven, I was involved with my older sister's experience of pregnancy and labor.


Becoming a Doula

Being a part of such a miracle of nature and offering my love and care has stayed with me until today. Over the past twenty-five plus years, many friends have asked me to support them through their labor and birth. I've been told that they wanted me at their side because I bring with me a sense of calm and confidence. They feel secure because they are in loving, caring hands.


These experiences motivated me to become a professional Doula and I have been certified by DONA International (Doulas of North America) in 2008 and also became a trained childbirth educator with ICEA (International Childbirth Education Association).  To date, I have accompanied and supported hundreds of women through labor and birth.


For me, pregnancy, labor, and birth are of a spiritual and physical nature. I have spent the past twenty years of my life studying and teaching spirituality, with the emphasis on personal growth and transformation. As a result, I see the rewards of combining these teachings with my doula service.


I have been married to my soul mate Michael for the past twenty-seven years and we have been blessed with four beautiful daughters. As a mother, I have an intrinsic understanding of the precious and wondrous journey you are embarking on. Being pregnant and giving birth has been the most cherished experience of my life.
