Also Sees Patients In
Rachel is compassionate, knowledgeable and personable when it comes to her job at a CNM. I know I’m in the best hands when it comes to my health during and post pregnancy. She’s delivered both of my children and has done so with a great amount of care and professionalism. I highly recommend Rachel and the rest of the team to any woman who is expecting.

Rachel is such a good midwife. I really appreciate how she talks with me and makes sure to answer all my questions - even if it isn’t directly related to the procedure I went in for today.

Rachel is an amazing provider. I love the McFarland clinic midwives. I have chose a midwife all four of my pregnancies and never had one regret. They listen to you and really cheer you on throughout the whole process. Rachel will respect your opinion on your healthcare and listen to you.

Midwife Rachel was AMAZING !! I get very nervous about new doctors and I had the best experience ever with her. She is calm and explains everything she is going to do before she does it. I highly recommend her to anyone!! Thank you Rachel!

Rachel H, does a great job explaining everything and always provides a judgement free space. At least it feels like it.

This was my first time meeting this provider, and she was exceptional! Spent time introducing herself and getting to know me. Double-checked I had no more questions for her before she left. Probably the most thorough and patient provider I've ever seen!

Rachel is a very caring and compassionate provider. She has many skills, but one of her greatest gifts is being a remarkable listener. She takes the time to really understand the situation. I think all health care providers could learn from her and benefit from her approach.

Rachel was amazing! When Donna retired, she recommended Rachel, best decision. Rachel came in, introduced herself and asked me to introduce myself. She was thorough, informative and I felt comfortable asking all questions. I’m and out of the appointment timely. Excellent appointment at McFarland!
