Welcome to my page. I am so happy you're here!
During my 1st pregnancy, I quickly realized there was a lack of accessible information and education around how to train throughout pregnancy and into postpartum. Google leads you down a path of confusing and conflicting information with many of it incredibly outdated. The general guidelines & do's and don't of pregnancy do not factor the individual and training variables at hand and simply label movements as 'safe' or 'unsafe'. Personal training is tailored to the individual, why should pregnancy be any different? A quick google search is going to tell you to stop doing all core work (!!!), to not to lift anything over 20lbs and to absolutely not start a new exercise program. Because of this, so many women are left feeling overwhelmed and intimidated by exercise.
For postpartum, you're cleared for exercise by your doctor at 6 weeks, and told to resume activity like before. However you have an internal wound the size of a dinner plate inside your uterus that is still healing, your pelvic floor is stretched from birthing a baby or you're healing from a major abdominal surgery. Your recovery doesn't end after one doctors visits and jumping back to pre-pregnancy standards (which is what is advised) without considering your pelvic health can lead to so many dysfunctions (leaking, prolapse, pain etc).
It's not as simple as just modifying an exercises so that it's 'pregnancy safe' or 'getting your body back' after baby. Your pre/post natal training goes far beyond modifications and one doctors visit. Women's health and fitness is an under served industry and I am here to change that. With your long term performance and interests in mind, I connect the dots between women's health consideration and YOUR body, YOUR pregnancy. I love watching women experience the physical, mental and emotional benefits of a strong pregnancy and supporting them throughout the most incredible journey; becoming a Mom!
