Birth is physical, primal, and requires strength of will, body, and mind. I work one-on-one with women prenatally to help prepare them for pregnancy and birth.
You will develop strength to support you as your body and center of gravity shifts - strength you can call on in labor and strength to develop supportive ranges of motion to maintain comfort as you move through pregnancy and birth. You will build the confidence and conditioning necessary to approach birth with a deep sense of courage and acceptance for what is and what will come. This is reflected in my emphasis on building functional strength in the back of your body (your posterior chain), stability in different positions (especially deep squatting), confidence to utilize the power of your own voice, and higher intensity training to prepare for contractions in labor... and a fierce, flexible, and open mindset.
