“Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.”
– Elizabeth Stone
My goals are to help you
Have a Nourishing and Positive Pregnancy
by helping you become educated on options, gain access to valuable resources, and remain nourished and active. Any stage can be overwhelming: the beginning stage planning where you’ll deliver and who you’ll want on your birth team or a later stage deciding on options for childbirth and comfort measures during active labor through the postpartum time of planning freezer meals and baby care.
A proper exercise prescription and alignment check will help ease common ailments, such as back and neck pain and constipation, to glide into your last days of pregnancy with ease.
Prepare for an easier childbirth
by learning exercises in pregnancy to prepare your hips and pelvic floor and mentally preparing for the birth you desire.
Being supported through your entire labor
emotionally through encouraging words and physically by practicing positions during the different stages of labor will help assist with progression and stalled labors. Comfort measures I or your partner will provide will help control and distract from the waves of rushes you will experience.
Recovery quickly and safely in the postpartum
by avoiding or correcting problems like diastisis recti, back pain, and incontinence. Slowly healing your body by noshing on nutritionally dense foods and a restorative fitness program gaining proper alignment and utilizing a Minimum Effective Dose (MED). Because lets face it, as a new mom it will be hard to find the time and you’ll need options that are safe, quick, and effective for feeling good and working toward your goals.
