"Thank you Rachel! This was so beautifully and passionately presented. Asking those difficult questions of myself definitely refined and clarified my role and certainly brought the focus back to what I can do, rather than what I wish I could do. It's been a fantastic learning experience." 
– Faye Wood

"Thank you Rachel! It has been amazing to have the opportunity to reflect on, and grow in, what I’m offering to women, but also to consider how I can continue doing the role I love more sustainably, while also being part of a bigger collective working to reclaim childbirth. Thank you for this brilliant course!"

"I absolutely loved this course. It's a breath of fresh air to hear the facts vs. practices of the maternity industry. To learn of the herstory of birth practices brings me so much clarity in how modern birth practices have come to be – huge lightbulb moments for me. Rachel, you deliver the information so well, in such a grounded and well articulated way.

"What a brilliant course – I have learned so much about myself. I also love that I can come back and redo the activities as I further develop my skills and abilities in the birth world!"
