Ask yourself ...

○ Are you a new mum whose baby simply won’t settle in their crib?
○ Has feeding become the nightmare you thought you’d never have to face?
○ Did you expect to be a laid-back parent, able to meet their baby’s needs, only to find that your baby has other ideas?
○ Were you looking forward to exchanging work for motherhood but now feel overwhelmed at the lack of routine?
○ Do you feel that everyone else is coping but that you’ve run out of cope?
○ Do you get past one parenting challenge just to be rocked by another, and another …? 


I am Rachel Fitz-Desorgher, a leading, internationally-known baby and parenting expert, Agony Aunt for Mother & Baby and one of the team of experts for The Baby Show
My passionate mission is to RECONNECT women with their innate inner-mother, to REASSURE them that their experiences of mothering their highly-evolved baby and child are both real and universal, and RE-EMPOWER them with practical, effective and gentle strategies so they can REDISCOVER how to mother confidently. 
As the mother to four sons, my knowledge is grounded in my own personal experience, over 30 years’ work as a specialist midwife, infant feeding consultant and parenting consultant, and as the author of the 5-star book Your Baby Skin To Skin.

I bring my expansive experience and down-to-earth, practical approach into all my work with women & their families and, if you’d like to explore how we can work together one to one to bring clarity and calm back into your life, contact me and I will come back to you.
You’ll get a warm welcome into our popular RachelFitzD Community
This closed, women-only group is for all pregnant women, and mums at any stage on their parenting journey.
Providing a haven away from “Google Garbage” and “Mum Myth”, it brightens your day with non-judgemental companionship from other like-minded women, and regular live expert input from me in the form of reassuring and evidence-based Facebook Lives on sleep and other parenting challenges. 

My book

A baby's instincts are not learned and can never be wrong, so why do we feel the need to try to teach them how to be a baby?

From the perspective of evolution, Your Baby Skin To Skin explains how to parent by tuning into your own and your baby’s instincts.

From your baby's first few days, through feeding and sleeping issues to realistic routines and weaning advice, I answer your questions with a calm, practical reassurance.
