WHAT IS BIRTHFIT?
BIRTHFIT is an empowered, educated state of readiness—specific to childbirth and postpartum—that is achieved through an evolved practice in fitness, nutrition, chiropractic & mindset.
BIRTHFIT is a movement. It’s about expecting and postpartum moms taking charge of their bodies and their decisions, and supporting one another’s journeys—together and apart.
BIRTHFIT is an approach to birth. We challenge the status quo and ask the questions no one else asks. We read, research, experiment & consolidate all the common sense, time-honored wisdom & recent studies we can find and present that information to you through various education models. Our pillars are fitness, nutrition, chiropractic & mindset. We unconditionally support YOU—the birth mom & birth partner—to make the best decision for you and Baby.
BIRTHFIT is a state of readiness. Childbirth is perhaps the most physical, mental & spiritual experience of a woman’s life. We want you to be ready in body, mind & spirit for the experience of birth and the lifelong journey that follows.
BIRTHFIT is your support team. We are a team of practitioners, educators, chiropractors, coaches, nutritionists, fellow mamas, men & women who are involved in our local communities and we are all rooting for YOU.
The FOUR PILLARS of BIRTHFIT
Four is the number of greatness. The four compass points. Four-leafed clovers. Four sticks in a Kit Kat bar, and let’s not forget The Beatles. At BIRTHFIT, we have four pillars that guide the education we offer and the services we provide. Read on to meet your four new best friends that will help you rock your pregnancy: the four pillars of BIRTHFIT.
To functionally train in a way that develops competencies in physical skills as well as enhances the three main metabolic pathways.
To cultivate a relationship with food that is rich in color and nutrients from a wide variety of animals, fish, plants, fruits, fats, and starchy tubers, while nourishing the body through the different rhythms of life and the female cycle.
To create space between a stimulus and a response, to embrace a growth perspective, and create action around values in order to make decisions from a place of love rather than fear.
To open pathways from the cellular to the metaphysical level wherein a human can experience and express optimal health in body, mind, and soul.
How is BIRTHFIT different from everyone else?
Well we are different because all of our breathing and functional movements are based off of the research done on Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) by the Prague School of Rehabilitation. While our goal is to get you moving and connecting with your baby and body, all of the movements done are done based off of research and understanding the female body to optimize both safety and effectiveness. You deserve more than just your body back…you deserve to be strong, stable and confident!
