Hello. My name is Rachel Fitz-Desorgher.
I am an experienced midwife, infant feeding consultant, active birth teacher and parenting consultant. I co-created Henley Birthcare, a unique freelance midwifery and doula service offering bespoke care to clients in Oxfordshire, London and the Home Counties.
In the first private/NHS partnership of its kind, I mentor midwifery students from Oxford Brookes University, lecture at hospitals and conferences on infant feeding and tongue-tie and I am the midwife specialist for EDS UK, a genetic connective tissue disorder.
As the mother to four sons, my knowledge is grounded in my own personal experience and over 30 years’ work as a midwife. Always more interested in the parent-baby relationship than in “catching” babies, I bring my knowledge of evolutionary biology to my approach in preparing parents for labour and birth, feeding, soothing and parenting babies and children.
Whatever your unique needs, I can offer you bespoke help, advice and support services that are sensitive, practical and, above all else, effective.
