A unique perspective on being a mum
The popular Instagram personality is now busier than ever. Since filming season two of 'Yummy Mummies', she's given birth to another bouncing boy, Harry.
We asked Rachel how she juggles the mummy and the yummy.
Organisation, over-planning and compromise!
I always plan to fit in five sessions during the week knowing "something" always comes up and knocks me back to three (which is my actual goal!).
I do a mix of strength and cardio classes and Pilates. On the weekends I have a break, or a sneaky Sunday gym session if I've been particularly busy during the week.
My advice is to try and find a gym with like-minded people that fits into your schedule and budget.
Being active is a huge part of my family's life. We love kicking the footy in the park, walking the dog, going to the swimming pool - anything that lets Harvey run outside and burn his never-ending energy!
My husband also loves being active and even rode 1000 km this year for the 'Live for Lily' charity.
I call Harry my little garbage guy - he eats everything and lots of it!
As Harvey, my three-year-old, gets older I feel he is becoming a little more fussy so I have really had to put my creative hat on to get him to eat more healthy options.
It can be a struggle getting Harvey to eat new things, but Mum's lasagna is always a favourite.
My best tip is to make meal times fun and colourful, and if all else fails get creative to hide the veggies!
I don't always have time to prepare, so when I'm in a hurry, I'll just cook up some sausages and steam some vegetables from the freezer.

I decided with my second pregnancy that I wanted to be the healthiest and best version of myself. That included fitness, healthy eating and taking probiotics to assist with my digestive and immune health.
During my pregnancy with Harry I took Life-Space Probiotic for Pregnancy & Breastfeeding. We've now moved on to other products in their range. I'm taking Life-Space Broad Spectrum Probiotic, Harvey takes Life-Space Probiotic Powder for Children, and little Harry's on the Probiotic Powder for Baby.
My nanna's looking after herself too - she takes Life-Space Probiotic for 60+ Years.
Nothing in this world can light up my heart more than seeing my kids smile, laugh and be happy.
Bedtime routine can drive me mad, though! 5pm to 7pm is pretty wild in my household.
I'm just amazed at how incredible a woman's body is. To grow a human being for nine months in my tummy still blows my mind.
Don't sweat the small stuff!
