Prenatal Care

Creating a nurturing space for a peaceful and empowered birth

Rachel Varela Taos Mountain Doula Birth Coach

Taos Mountain Birth Sanctuary provides holistic care for you and your baby throughout your entire pregnancy. 

Our hour-long appointments ensure that we build a trusting relationship while learning about your unique birth vision.

Prenatal appointments are once a month through your first and second trimester, twice a month from 28-36 weeks, and then weekly until you give birth. 

At 36 weeks, we plan an in-home visit  to help you and your family prepare for your labor and new baby. 

When you reach 37 weeks of pregnancy, we are on call for you 24/7 and ready to assist your birth at any time day or night. 

We are available through text or call if you have any questions or concerns at any point in your pregnancy.

I look forward to working with you and your growing family! 
Please call me, Rachel Mayente-Varela to schedule a free consultation.


 – Kind Words –

When you hire Rachel you’re hiring a friend. Rachel goes above and beyond with the passion and expertise she brings to the table. I was initially hesitant about hiring a stranger to emotionally and mentally guide me through the most intense time of my life – giving birth – but upon my first meeting with her I felt instantly encouraged and safe. Beyond the priceless support she gave me during the labor of my son she encouraged me and comforted me in both the days leading up to and the challenging weeks beyond delivery. She became a friend, a mentor, a shoulder to cry on, and a hand to squeeze. I had no fear during labor because I knew I could lean on her to guide me through. Rachel radiates and embodies the maternal spirit – what more could you ask for?
