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!”

Born at the Right Time International Specialist Training


Bridging the Gap

Reimagining communication and co-production with families in a post-covid world.


Social distancing, isolation, shielding have all become common words across the globe. How are these changing times affecting our ability to communicate with families of those with complex needs? The Disabled Children’s Partnership research has highlighted that families in lockdown are suffering.

The challenge for practitioners across health, education and social care is to provide connected, meaningful and evidence based service which meets the needs of families where they are.

After a hugely successful presentation at the international eHealth Summit this inspiring CPD accredited study* day explores;

  • Families’ lived experience (including in lockdown)
  • Telehealth: Pale imitation or colossal opportunity?
  • Communication and co-production with families
  • The challenge of reimagining: Is resilience a personal endeavour or responsibility of the system?
  • How professional practice and service provision can be reimagined in a post-covid world.
  • Provides 7 hours CPD accredited training (On-line training either 9.30am-1.30pm or 17.30-21.30 BST)

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. Many parents feel undermined when they are called ‘Mum’ or ‘Dad’ in meetings and appointments.
