Author, educator, public speaker and advocate for natural birth
“What we are seeing, particularly with first births, is that Primal Woman is often coming out a bit scared, a bit not knowing and trusting her strength, a bit not knowing the territory. Often it’s expressed as that crisis of confidence that ‘I can’t do it’ or ‘It’s taking me somewhere I don’t want to go.’
Being in that space for me is holding sacred those unravelling moments – that this is the pathway, this is the territory of that unravelling. That opening of the heart and opening of that deeper strength within to birth that mother, at the same time while I am helping birth that baby.
I mean really, what could be more privileged?”

“I do feel if you are following your dreams, then the Universe will look after you. There’s also the fact that in order to do this life, I’ve brought my living costs down, down, down and so maybe that’s not something everyone is prepared to do.”
Rachel makes her two passions – music and natural incense – a viable livelihood by living in a converted van. We speak to Rachel about her journey thus far into her life More Wild.

“We can replace the Old and What we’ve learned, with the New and How we want to be.”
I need to hear more stories about strong women leading beauty-filled and spiritual lives, and so I created Empress Crow and Rabbit. It’s a forum to showcase the inspirational stories of women in uniquely feminine careers. It's also a bridge between what we think we know and what we feel is right. Thank you for joining me – let’s all learn, grow and celebrate the feminine together.
