Hello! This is me, Rebecca Wright. I’m a Postnatal Specialist, and I’ve been working with women and families in the Northeast since 2005.
I’m (solo) mama to four little people, aged 1 to 13 years, including a gorgeous baby boy with Down’s Syndrome. I’m a birth and postnatal doula, childbirth educator, breastfeeding counselor, mentor and healer.
I work with women on the journey to and through motherhood. I know that this journey, however much we want it or love it, can get messy!
If you are finding this road NOT quite as easy or straightforward as you’d imagined it – physically, emotionally, or practically – you’re in the right place. 😊
While my focus is on life and health after birth, I know the journey to motherhood isn’t a linear one – very often the experiences and choices that come BEFORE this point have incredible impact on how we experience AFTER, and most of us will circle round a few times before we’re done. I help women at all stages along the continuum: fertility, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, postnatal recovery (whether the baby was born yesterday or a few years ago). This includes healing and support for women who have lost a baby.
As a mother myself, I know that becoming a mother doesn’t always follow the smooth, anticipated course. It is often a time when we face unexpected pressures and challenges…it’s a time when life can get messy! It’s normal and human to feel challenged by that.
But there’s another truth too:
You are important. How you feel matters.
Motherhood often changes us in ways no one tells us about, ways that we never could have predicted. It’s physical, intimate, challenging – we’re talking bodies here! – and sometimes bodies that don’t do what we want or expect them to do. We may end up feeling feel broken…and certainly not cut out for this whole motherhood thing!
Yep, I know that feeling. I’ve been there too. And I know things can change.
I help women feel better in their bodies again, physically and emotionally. When you work with me, I want you to walk away feeling more vital, more whole than when we begin.
The work we do together aims to: *restore clarity and a sense of connection, *rebuild core strength and healthy body function, *re-establish emotional balance and resilience.
“Rebecca has a rare gift. She is able to work with women as a spiritual and physical healer. She is gentle but fearless and, in my view, totally unique as a healer. To meet her is to know that here is someone who can offer something special for those who are trying to make sense of the unique and complex woundings, birthings, losses and re-birthings that women can experience.”

In my 13+ years of being a mother and my 11+ years of working with women and families, I’ve come to understand that there is a difference between ‘normal’ common and ‘normal’ functional, healthy. My purpose is to help you cross that bridge from ‘normal’ common back to ‘normal’ functional and well.
I get that life gets messy. Whatever your story and whatever your starting point, my help comes with no criticism, no judgement, just pure presence and understanding.
