Into the Portal with Yoga Girl's Rachel Brathen

Watch this episode HERE 

We’re starting the season on a high note with a soulful conversation with Rachel Brathen, lovingly known to many of us as YogaGirl.

Here’s what you’ll hear: 

  • Rachel’s story of having no role models for a healthy marriage or healthy birth, yet her first birth dreams were of unassisted birth.

  • The adorable story of how she and her husband met (Hint: imagine a surf shop, a short getaway, and a small island).

  • Both of her conception stories (& how she knew she was ready for motherhood).

  • Having her first child in Aruba, the birth sabotage she experienced with medical midwives and the system, and how she gaslit herself for years about it.

  • How she leveled up in success and self-responsibility. 

  • The decision to move her family from Aruba to Sweden, her land of origin. 

  • The story of her beautiful and perfect freebirth in the water.
