And now she is sharing some of her bizarre encounters while visiting family homes in her new book Handle With Care: Confessions of an NHS Health Visitor.
Rachael revealed how she was forced to teach the husband and wife about the logistics of sex after realising they had no idea about their own biology.
Previously speaking to the Mirror she explained: “They had been married for some years but children ‘hadn’t come along.’
“The GP deduced they didn’t know how to make babies, and it was my job to ensure they did!’

“They genuinely thought babies arrived as a result of simply ‘being married’ and had no clue. Teaching someone about sex is quite a responsibility. But within a couple of visits, the pair couldn’t keep their hands off each other.”
Rachael’s extensive career has seen her witness all sorts of bizarre sexual behaviour, including one visit when a man masturbated in front of her.
She was visiting a new baby whose mum was an offender, while sat with the woman and her boyfriend she noticed the “unmistakable rhythmic wrist action” out of the corner of her eye – but continued with the visit as though nothing had happened.

And during a visit to an 18-month-old and their mum’s home she quickly realised that the parent and child were living in a brothel.
She explained: “’I was ushered through to the kitchen, where I passed by the parlour room on the left, generally used as a dining room in the other terraced houses on the street. This one, however, was clearly ‘the boudoir’ occupied by a double bed and a couple ‘at it’.”
But while the environment was a little out of the ordinary, Rachael says that the child , who was “clutching a copy of a gentleman’s magazine” was healthy and well developed – and she had seen much worse.
