Why did you choose birth work?
Well, birth work sort of found me in a way! I was at a crossroads in my life, not
sure of which path to follow. When my sister-in-law introduced me to an
experienced doula in the community, I realized I had finally found my calling. At
first, I was hesitant about entering the birth world without having gone through childbirth myself. However, this doula saw a spark in me that I never knew existed. Now, years later, birth work has become my life’s vocation and ultimate passion.
Birth is intense. Birth is intimate. But above all, birth is sacred.
The love I have for my Little Lamb families is unlike any other and I am so thankful to each of them for choosing me as their doula or midwife's assistant.
Whether you are birthing in a hospital, birth center, or in the comfort of your home, my goal as a birth worker is to protect the very sacredness of your birth so that you can walk away stronger and more confident in your role as a new mother and new family.
My name is Rachel Barb (Wiggins) and I am a certified birth doula through Birth
Arts International and a Midwife's Assistant. I have been a birth doula since
January 2015 and have had the pleasure of serving many beautiful families in that time. I was born and raised in Oklahoma and it has become a passion serving the families of this great state!
A little bit about myself: I am newly married to the most handsome man! I love spending my free time with him and my family (especially my precious nieces and nephews), catching up on my reading, and listening to my favorite musical group, Mumford & Sons, while enjoying a room temp cup of coffee. I am a Four on
the Enneagram and macaroni & cheese is my love language.
