what is BIRTHFIT?

What we're known for:

You've most likely heard of BIRTHFIT as a pregnancy and postpartum exercise plan.  Which you wouldn't be incorrect about, because BIRTHFIT HQ does have fitness programming you can purchase on our website.  However, the FITNESS pillar isn't just about exercising during pregnancy and postpartum. 

It's about training EFFECTIVELY in a way that will prepare you for your birth experience, adapting movements to keep you connected with your ENTIRE CORE (from your neck all the way down to your pelvic floor), learning proper breathing, core, and posterior chain engagement during movement (can help with common pregnancy and postpartum pains), and movement guidelines to support you during all four trimesters.  If you're pregnant and newly postpartum and your trainer or coach has you doing any type of sit ups, crunches, twists, mountain climbers run for the hills!!!  Our Prenatal Training and Postpartum Programs teach specific movements that are known to help reduce symptoms of diastasis recti,  properly utilize the pelvis and pelvis floor, and build you and your posterior chain to be as strong as a mother!

What we actually are:

We are a network of Regional Directors, Coaches, Professionals, Doulas, Doctors, Nurses, Educators building a tribe to support women and families for a better future.  We aren't just fitness!  We talk all the talk including the importance of consuming nutrient dense foods, but also why you're craving simple carbs during pregnancy.  Did you know that the spinal cord is the first thing built in-utero?  That's why we think chiropractic care is so important, it houses the communication system in your body.  During pregnancy your body, spine, and pelvis are trying to figure out how to support the new load and adjustments can help space for baby.  MINDSET, what BIRTHFIT is really about!  Keeping real with yourself, but also surrendering to the process of what it takes to build a baby (we know its not all magical flowers and rainbows) and giving moms the tools to tackle all of emotions and expectations that can sometimes come with it.   We have been trained to have the tough conversations that come if there is an experience of pregnancy or infant loss, we can provide the space and resources to support you and your family.  We support all women!
