Dr. Rachael Elizabeth

Hello I am Dr. Rachael and I love being a mama to my 5 children! My journey, as a mama, accelerated my passion to help women be excited rather than fearful of all aspects of motherhood.

 

I had my first baby almost 2 decades ago and I had no idea how to care for my body or my growing baby. I trusted in my care providers to help me through the process of being a growing mama. Surely they would help me learn how to nourish my body & help me in the delivery room?

 

However, a different story emerged. One that isn’t as beautiful as I had hoped. During labor, I remember lying on my side as the surges moved through my core and transferred throughout my body. The only relief I had was rubbing my head over and over with a washcloth to help ease the discomfort I was fearing would only get worse.

 

The contraction machine warned me of the surges before I would begin to feel them, which caused me a lot of fear. The only support that I had was my epidural, and the need to be coached to push on my back resulting in an unapproved episiotomy, and trauma to my girlie parts.

 

Several years later, after experiencing a natural birth, I saw this journey so differently that it became my passion. Pregnancy, birth, and postpartum looked completely different and empowering to me now, and I needed to prepare physically and mentally for each stage. Although there is an uncontrollable part to this journey, I had the skills and tools to prepare my body holistically. As a result, I went on to have my last three babes naturally and walked away with no symptoms or trauma, to (only…) minor soreness from birth. I felt so amazing that my Midwives had to caution me to rest more!

 

Using my experiences in motherhood and in my profession, I offer guidance, and solutions, to support women in caring for their bodies to feel clarity in the uncontrollable aspects of motherhood.

 

This approach enables my clients to make their holistic plan that helps them find confidence in the unknown, and to optimize their unique journey in motherhood.

Hi! This is Michael and Emily – a husband & wife virtual services team!

We are so excited to support you in your journey with Dr. Rachael and her team. We absolutely love working in virtual services, as we are able to connect with clients, help build systems and business processes, and engage in our creative side with social media and other writing and design!

When we aren’t working, we are almost always outside – okay, maybe we also work outside sometimes!! We absolutely love traveling in our tiny camper with our pup, Murphy! In our free time, we will typically be found scouting flowers on a hiking path, breathing a little too hard up a mountain bike trail, or playing games!

If you have any questions or need additional support, we are your go-to team! We can’t wait to chat with you!

The Path to Wellness

I help mamas discover that the process of becoming and being a mother doesn’t have to be scary. Instead, pregnancy, giving birth and postpartum life can be customized to align with what they envision all stages of motherhood to be like.

So many mamas and mamas-to-be feel afraid of the unknown and wonder if they are going to be able to handle pregnancy, labor and delivery, and recovery. They are often led to believe they must rely on the health professionals on their team to tell them the right ways to stay healthy and happy in the process. But, what I know and believe is that mamas have so many tools and skills in their own power that can bring a healthy labor, delivery, and recovery for both mama and baby.

For 2 decades I’ve become a mom to 5 kids via multiple birth methods and settings, and I’ve also built a thriving women’s health physical therapy and coaching practice. In that process, I have learned first hand that each mom’s journey from pregnancy to recovery is unique and can be full of joy and excitement, rather than fear.
