Register now for the next BIRTHFIT Postpartum Series!
Way more than a postpartum workout, this course will help you heal your body from the inside out.
BIRTHFIT is a movement that is working to empower women through the Motherhood Transition: from preconception through at least the first year postpartum. The intention of the BIRTHFIT Postpartum Series is to honor a woman’s postpartum body by giving it space to heal through breath and movement and reconnecting a woman to her core. Implementing the four BIRTHFIT pillars of fitness, nutrition, chiropractic, and mindset, this Series is unlike anything else on the planet. It’s nothing like a bootcamp class. This course was designed by a team of doctors, mothers, coaches, and doulas to ensure optimal postpartum recovery and rehabilitation.
No matter your fitness history, the BIRTHFIT Postpartum Series can help you navigate movements in your postpartum body and contribute to healing things like pelvic floor dysfunction and diastasis recti.
This is a four week postpartum rehabilitation class that will meet twice per week for an hour per class. We’ll work on functional movements (both bodyweight and weighted); share birth stories/journeys; heal visible and invisible scars from birth; and return to working out and everyday life feeling stronger and empowered. The courses are geared towards women who are 6 weeks to 6 months postpartum, but is appropriate for any mother who is looking to improve herself and her health through movement and community.

What past attendees are saying:
Before I gave birth to my daughter exercising was easy. I was an avid runner. I liked to box, lift weights, and go to Pure Barre. Pregnancy kicked my ass. Even though I was fit I wasn’t prepared for the energy drain that growing a baby took. I started to work out less and less. At the end of my pregnancy I was on bed rest for preeclampsia.
After my daughter was born I was tasked with getting fit again. I had no idea where to start beyond walking. BirthFIT really helped me a lot. Not only did it help me slowly get moving, but moving with purpose. I was also able to talk about emotional mommy things like my birth story and breastfeeding. After just a couple of workouts I felt strong again and that was a really empowering feeling for me. I don’t want to just have my prebaby body back; I want to be strong, fit, and able in order to be good role model for my daughter. BirthFIT was the foundation to getting back into my exercising groove.” – Genevieve
