Devon Parish registers are held at 3 offices in Devon: Exeter, Barnstaple (North Devon Record Office) and Plymouth.
Details of the holdings of the first 2 can be found at https://swheritage.org.uk/devon-archives/ but neither of these hold Plymouth area registers.
The Plymouth office was closed whilst a new facility was built called The Box. Their new website should have details of their holdings:
You would need to visit in person to look at the registers or engage a researcher (likely to be costly I would have thought if you don't know which parish the event took place).
If you have not come across it before, the GENUKI website has lots of info on Devon, and might be helpful in helping you track down the possible parishes (Plymouth, Stoke Damarel, Devonport etc).
There is also the possibility that Rachel was baptised in Cornwall as it is just across the water and there would have been movement between the 2 areas.
