Rachel Rivers has been a Registered Midwife for over 20 years, and in 2007 also gained the distinguished qualification of International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She has extensive experience in both the public and private sectors, working with families in one of life’s most incredible yet vulnerable and often very complex periods. She has worked exclusively in the field of lactation for the past four years. Rachel has a passion for empowering women to achieve their breastfeeding goals, whatever they may be. Her approach is always gentle, practical, and family-centred. For every wonderfully unique breastfeeding journey she has the privilege to be involved in, she provides expert support, guidance and plenty of handy tips and tricks.

Families who are unable to attend our clinic to see both Rachel and Dr Annie together are able to contact Rachel directly through her own website – https://www.coastlactationconsultants.com.au – to try to organise a home visit if available.
