Hello love,

I’m Rachel, a Trauma-informed Birth Doula as well as a Reflexologist and Womb Healer (@sacredselfwombkeeping). Prior to becoming a Doula, my career history was dedicated to supporting ill-mental health within children, adolescents and parents.

I completed my training with Conscious Birthing over a year ago and have since supported 5 births. I have experience in supporting home births, water births, hospital births, pre-term arrivals, HBAC (Home Birth After Caesarean), postnatal care during time in NICU and families exposed to adverse experiences at time of birth.

My role in all experiences will always be to hold space for you and your family, to remind you of your intentions and power, to provide you with evidence-based research and information and to nourish you physically, emotionally and spiritually throughout your pregnancy, birth and postnatal journey.

As an Holistic Therapist, I also weave together post-partum care with holistic treatments, as well as introducing elemental and ritual practices, if you so feel called to connect that way too.

If you would like to learn more about me or the way I work, please feel free to get in touch for a friendly chat either over the phone or over a brew! I've included a recent testimonial below.

I look forward to meeting you soon,


"Rachel provided information and techniques in preparation for birth, as well as direction on the role of the partner and how they can support in the process. Her labour and birth support was the most important part as she provided on-hands support and pain management with massage and reflexology, as well as mental support during the delivery, so I felt safe and that I'm being taken care of. She offered Postnatal Debriefing on what happened during the delivery really helped me to understand my experience better and have a positive closure. She also provided additional information, and performed reflexology and womb wrapping which was a really special experience. 
5 out of 5 for providing information, advocacy and support.
Partner support-He was included in the meetings and she supported him in both preparation for birth, during the delivery and when debriefing after the delivery. He found this support indispensable. 5 out of 5 recommended!" December 2023
