Rachel  has been actively involved with the Sunshine Coast PND Centre since 2010, first as a participant and  since 2011 helping  Lisa facilitate the 8 week PND course.
Rachel has worked in the health sector for a number of years, and has recently returned to part-time work.  Rachel has one child, and was diagnosed with postnatal depression and anxiety when her son was 6 months old. She believes that a history of anxiety and her expectations about motherhood and babies sleep routines contributed to her PND.
Rachel is passionate about supporting women through the challenges associated with PND, and due to her own journey, is able to relate to women in the course, and offer a listening ear and helpful strategies to assist recovery.
At the end of the PND course, all women are invited to join an ongoing weekly mothers group which is facilitated by Rachel.
