BIRTHFIT is a movement. Women are taking charge of their bodies and their decisions before conception, during pregnancy, and after birth. We're 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, chiropractic & mindset. 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 4 PILLARS
BIRTHFIT is based on 4 important things:
Fitness: To functionally train in a way that develops competencies in physical skills as well as enhances the three main metabolic pathways.
Nutrition: To consume a diet that is rich in color and nutrients, from a wide variety of animals, fish, plants, fruits, and fats and starchy fibers.
Mindset: To be present in the moment, grateful for your life’s experiences, and embrace with a big ol’ open heart to welcome the transition into motherhood.
Connection: To open pathways from the cellular to the metaphysical level wherein a human can experience and express optimal health in body, mind, and soul.

She became "Mama" to a fiesty + shining + fierce female in 2017, and it's only deepened her love and curiosity for the motherhood transition. She's not a college athlete, or a powerlifting monster, but she loves a good workout and appreciates the power of movement. She wants you to know you don't have to be any certain "type" of mom to be BIRTHFIT. She knows that starting a new class, or joining a new gym can be weird and awkward, but there will always be someone happy to see you at BIRTHFIT. She would tell you more, but her toddler probably just threw something in the toilet. Join her for a class series or consultation to get her undivided attention and find out how BIRTHFIT Cedar Rapids can change your life.
