Show Notes

Already having 4 children, with her youngest being 14 years old, and thinking that she was done having children and accepting the fact that she was pre-menopausal, Rachel was stunned when she found out that she was unknowingly 18 weeks pregnant. Initially being concerned about having a baby at this age, Rachel soon embraced this pregnancy and chronicled her entire Pregnancy After 40 Journey on Instagram. Hailing from Australia, super positive and motivational, and refreshingly honest, Rachel had a textbook pregnancy and delivery at 46, which she believes was the result of being naturally fit all her life. Sharing her labor via video on her timeline, Rachel shows how she labored and delivered naturally and unmedicated despite her healthcare provider trying to discourage her from having a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). To hear more, tune in to this episode for Rachel’s full Pregnancy after 40 Journey and Story.
