What is birthfit?

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, mindset & connection. 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

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 create 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 human can experience and express optimal health in body, mind and spirit.
