Born at the Right Time parenting workshops are run by Founder Rachel Wright. She says,
“Becoming the parent of a child with complex disabilities opens up a whole new community that you rarely even know existed. We’re a funny bunch of people from all walks of life held together by the tread of loving someone with a disability.
Over the years, I have found strength in sharing our stories. We are stronger together and can make big changes – for the better. Like the pebbles on a beach our stories shape us, change us and make us who we are today.
I love facilitating workshops with other parents. We explore what it means to be a parent of a child with additional needs and how we can connect well with others. There are some hard lessons to learn and this new normal can be challenge, so doing it together works best.”
The aim for each workshop is to be relaxed and open, where Rachel shares a little of my own life experiences, research and some lessons she’s learned along the way.
