Meet Avocado Doulas Founder, Rachel Basolo

Rachel Basolo holds herself to the highest professional standards and can be counted on to harness all her education, experience, and resources to provide practical support for clients wanting to add a doula to their birth team. Using her training as a birth doula through Birth Arts International and toLabor, coupled with her B.A. in Psychology, professional training and experience in counseling and advisory services, continuing education in modern birth topics, along with ongoing engagement in the birth community, Rachel Basolo has the tools and resources to provide exceptional service to discerning clients.

Now in a leadership role (and still an active doula), Rachel has grown a team of professionally trained and certified doulas who align with her practice, operate under a shared philosophy, and work well with our area’s OBs, midwives, and medical staff. As professionally trained and certified doulas, we support, educate, and inspire clients throughout all stages of growing one’s family. We provide unconditional, non-judgmental support, meeting you where you are, offering balanced and educated guidance, and helping you develop a plan that works for you and your family. Avocado Doulas resonate with strong parents who may feel anxious about birth or are wanting to do what they can to be more in control on this wild ride that is parenthood.

Since 2010, we have been providing individualized birth and postpartum support to Lane County families.
