During pregnancy your body is preparing for what is ultimately the largest physical event it will ever go through: birth. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of information out there to help guide you safely and effectively through this process. Most Doctors will readily claim that the healthier mom is, the healthier baby is but simply “doing what you have always done” isn’t enough of a guideline nor is “listen to your body”. You need proper guidance through this journey to help minimize potential risks. You are now training for birth and just because you CAN still do something doesn’t mean you SHOULD. If you want to stay active during your pregnancy and train with the purpose of having a good birth experience and a healthy baby and mom come talk to us!
