MEET RACHEL

Rachel was introduced to the world of birth work when she and her husband began trying to conceive their first child. After being given a diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) at age 22, Rachel was told that she would likely not be able to conceive and carry her own children without fertility assistance. Knowing that God had a plan for their family, Rachel and her husband chose to trust in His timing. After many prayers, countless tears, years of healing her body, and 18 months of actively trying to conceive, Rachel became pregnant with their son.

Through her struggle to conceive, Rachel learned firsthand how truly miraculous a woman's fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood can be, and how important it is to have support no matter which stage you are in.

 

Rachel has a passion for supporting women as they learn about their body and fertility, experience pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood, and everything in-between.
