As a mother and grandmother with over forty years experience as a maternity nurse, child-care expert, parental adviser and author, Rachel is one of Britain’s most sought after ‘gurus’ in the care and well-being of babies and young children.
Neither a die-hard disciplinarian nor a zealous ‘liberal’, Rachel believes in love and care within a structured, but flexible, routine which suits the natural patterns of both the mother and baby. Her clients include Hollywood stars, most notably Gwyneth Paltrow, MPs, royalty as well as many other families from around the world. Rachel’s first book, The Baby Book – How to Enjoy Year One (revised in 2017) – has proved hugely popular as well as her second book The Toddler Book – How to Enjoy Your Growing Child. Rachel’s third book – The Sleep Book – has sold very well as parents continue to seek Rachel’s advice for the best way to get their baby to sleep!
Rachel now runs a Baby and Childcare consultancy service called Rachel’s Babies. This is a hugely popular service for parents who need Rachel’s help and advice which she can give by telephone or in person with a home visit. Rachel’s Babies also has a small hand picked team of maternity nurses who are available both in the UK and abroad for short or extended work.
Rachel is available for corporate events, seminars, workshops, PR campaigns and other media projects. Click here to view Rachel’s website.
