Birth After Birth recognises the gradual emergence of each woman into motherhood in pregnancy and the post natal period and looks to empower her through the huge physical, psychological and spiritual changes and challenges that occur on the journey. The aim is to hold space for calm, confident mothers to arise, one birth at a time. Support is available throughout Argyll as a birth and post natal doula and private pregnancy yoga sessions. Rachael is a mother of three young ones and has been a yoga and teacher of daoist martial arts for more than ten years, and has run The Soen Ren School since 2011.
