Rachel giaccone – breastsbirthbabies.uk
I live in the Black Mountains between the Brecon Beacons and Hay-on-Wye. I am 56 years old and live with my partner Chris , an energetic teenager , cats, chickens and 30 beehives. I am a very creative person and worked as a freelance costume maker before my midwifery training. I feel my background has given me an open creative approach to pregnancy , birth and postpartum and enabled me to adapt, learn and share skills and ideas throughout my ‘birth sister’ career.
I was a dedicated midwife in the NHS for 25+ years and a qualified lactation consultant for 15 years. This all sounds very official but basically I love supporting families to learn about physiological birth and ways to achieve an empowered , supported birth using KG Hypnobirthing and other skills which I can teach. I have wisdom about Biomechanics and Rebozo in pregnancy and birth. I have trained with a mexican midwife Naoli Vinaver to offer the Closing the Bones Ceremony . I offer a Antenatal Mindful Breastfeeding group which works beautifully alongside the KG Hypnobirthing course. I am also a qualified Craniosacral therapist and enjoy my home practice with pregnant people, babies and the elderly.
I am passionate about Birth whichever community or country you come from. I have travelled extensively and supported birth, breastfeeding, community clinics in refugee camps in Greece, with traditional Birth attendants in Ethiopa and a small hospital in India.
I will always offer individualised information unique to your own pregnancy and explore the best ways for you and your partner to support each other.
‘ Huge huge thanks to @breats_birth_babies for supporting us back to empowerment & confidence during the challenges we faced, you are simply incredible’ HH oct’22
