Parenting a child with disabilities can be daunting and overwhelming, rewarding and incredible.

Welcome, it’s great you’ve stumbled upon Born at the Right Time. In 2005, Rachel Wright’s eldest son was born with a bump. As a qualified nurse and unqualified parent, she hurtled down an unmarked road of loving a child with complex disabilities and life-limiting epilepsy. Ten years later, her 5* memoir, The Skies I’m Under was published and Born at the Right Time founded.
