Welcome, it’s great you’ve stumbled upon Born at the Right Time.

Becoming the parent of a child with disabilities can be daunting and overwhelming, rewarding and incredible. In 2005, my eldest son was born with a bump. As a qualified nurse and unqualified parent, I hurtled down an unmarked road of loving a child with complex disabilities and life-limiting epilepsy. Ten years later, my GCSE English teacher and I were both shocked that The Skies I’m Under was published and Born at the Right Time founded.

In my view, the more professionals that hear Rachel speak the better!”

Don't Call Me Mum

The Don’t call me Mum initiative is working towards #bridgingthegap between professionals and parents. It is founded on mutual respect and asks practitioners to demonstrate their passion for parents as partners by simply using the parent’s name.
