Rachel's Story

I started Rachel's Remedy while I was breastfeeding, managing my law firm and more importantly, managing being a new mom. I made the decision to breastfeed almost as soon as I found out I was pregnant, but I was nervous about it because I just had no idea what to expect. When I learned about the nutritional benefits to my child and to me, it was a no-brainer, but I wondered how I would manage it all.

I now have two totally adorable boys, ages 6 and 8. When my first son was born, it was more amazing and magical than I ever imagined. I will never forget the overwhelming love and purpose I felt when we stared into each other’s eyes (sounds so corny but it’s true!).

A better way...However, as most women do, I also experienced discomfort and pain, and eventually had clogged ducts and mastitis. My doctor recommended I hold warm, wet washcloths (or diapers!) in place for 20-minute intervals numerous times per day. It was impractical and mostly impossible. While holding the washcloths in place, I was unable to wear clothes because they got wet, I was unable to care for my children, work or perform any function that required both hands. Not to mention, the washcloths needed constant reheating. A doctor even recommended that I lean into bowls of warm water on my kitchen counter, and just comfortably "hang out" there for as long as possible. Ummmm.... no. Seriously?

I knew there had to be a better way — a solution that offers moms the comfort and freedom they need and deserve. That’s when I put my career as a lawyer on the side and devoted my attention to finding a solution that helps moms breastfeed or pump more comfortably and conveniently, while
enjoying the freedom to take care of all those other things moms need to do - and even wear clothes that stay dry (imagine that!).

And that’s how Rachel's Remedy got started. Since the very first product launched- our Breast Relief Packs, we’ve also released Antimicrobial Nursing Pads and our new Down There Relief Pack- an award winner, for "Best New Product For Moms". And as one of the most appreciated new mom gifts ever- we have The Whole Kit and Kaboodle- all 3 in one, as the ultimate gift pack.

We are continuing to grow our product line to provide you with more relief in more places. I love helping people feel better and I love what I do. Your posts and reviews tell me every day that it’s helping. And that makes it all worthwhile.
