SERVICES FOR EVERYONE (Pre-Conception, Prenatal & Postpartum)
The BIRTHFIT Basics is a one-time, in-person or online 60-minute consultation with either Lauren or Jamie. Your BIRTHFIT Basics call will provide you with new avenues to explore during pregnancy, strategies to enhance your nutrition, movement and workout suggestions, and practical advice to prepare for labor and delivery.
You will receive a follow-up report from Lauren or Jamie that reviews the topics covered for your pregnancy and goals.
The BIRTHFIT Basics is not to replace any advice of your health care provider nor will it give you a medical prescription advice or a diagnosis. BIRTHFIT will give you support, information, and a constant resource for you to explore and take an ACTIVE role in your pregnancy.
CHIROPRACTIC & ACUPUNCTURE & NUTRITION
Dr. Lauren Keller & Dr. Jamie Thomure focus on prenatal and postpartum chiropractic care. Both doctors are skilled in muscle work, chiropractic adjustments, and taping specifically for prenatal and postpartum care. As you might expect, both implement therapeutic exercises to enhance overall well-being, performance and recovery.

FREE POWER HOUR
Are you curious about what all this "BIRTHFIT" ruckus is all about? We believe in educating and empowering prenatal and postpartum women through an evolved practice in fitness, nutrition, chiropractic, and mindset. So, what do we actually do? If you experience core or pelvic floor dysfunction (i.e. Diastatis Rectus Abdominus, peeing your pants during a hearty laugh or box jumps, or back pain during lifts) you will NOT want to miss this community class!
We will be practicing movements, so wear clothing you feel comfortable moving around in. Leggings, anyone?
While babies are always welcome to party, we will not provide childcare or childfriendly activities for other precious munchkins at this event.
If you would like to host the Power Hour at your gym, studio, or business, please contact Lauren or Jamie!

BIRTHFIT Breath and Flow
This series is designed for women that may have had a baby in the last six to twelve weeks. This series starts with breath work and evolves into full body functional motor patterns. You will establish a solid core foundation, wake up your posterior chain, and enhance your posture through safe, effective movements that transfers to any activity in our daily lives.
Our top three words to describe this class would be BREATH, BODY, and FLOW. You will also be given movement homework for practice. So, come ready to move and connect with the BIRTHFIT Tribe.
Non-mobile babies are welcome! Bring a yoga mat!
Cost: $125 for 4, 75-min sessions
