I’m Rachel Dolan Wickersham. I’m a registered nurse, Certified Professional Midwife, DONA certified doula and doula trainer, Lamaze certified childbirth educator and certified lactation specialist.
I provide culturally sensitive care and consultations in Chicagoland, Eastern Iowa and the surrounding Midwest. I would be honored to walk beside you on your journey into birth.
As someone who has primarily led a life of white and cisgender privilege with a few other small intersections, I am dedicated to working toward a better understanding of my privilege, my biases, and my self-expression. I value truth, kindness, equity and inclusion and above all, the voices of others sharing the stories of their lived experiences. Becoming a strong ally for those marginalized or oppressed is a continuous process, not a project. I strive to do no harm. I am in process.
