BIRTHFIT IS AN EMPOWERED, EDUCATED STATE OF READINESS - SPECIFIC TO CHILDBIRTH - THAT IS ACHIEVED THROUGH AN EVOLVED PRACTICE IN FITNESS, NUTRITION, MINDSET AND CONNECTION.
BIRTHFIT is a movement.
Its 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, mindset and connection. We unconditionally support YOU - the birth mom and birth partner - to make the best decision for you and baby.
BIRTHFIT is a state of readiness.
Childbirth is perhaps the most physical, mental and 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
Our experiences and services are founded on 4 pillars:
Fitness: To functionally train throughout the Motherhood Transition in all planes of motion to develop competencies and physical skills as well as enhance the main metabolic pathways.
Nutrition: 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.
Mindset: 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.
Connection: To open pathways from the cellular to the metaphysical level wherein a person can experience and express optimal health in body, mind, and soul.
