“We have a secret in our culture, it’s not that birth is painful.

It’s that women are strong”

~Laura Stavoc Harm, birth advocate

Welcome to Your birth Your baby! I’ve created this page as a go-to resource for evidence-based information on pregnancy, labour and birth, breastfeeding and the early weeks postpartum. Please have a look around.

“Rachel was so helpful and reassuring leading up to my birth. She provided easy to follow information and I felt very comfortable chatting about all my options and in making decisions about my birth.”


“After the birth of our first child, we decided to be more informed, know about different options, and be in charge of our decisions. Rachel’s support from before, right up to the birth of our boy gave me the information we needed to have a successful VBAC. Rachel was always professional, helpful and guiding.”
