Individualized support during pregnancy is essential, and no two people have the same set of needs. Tanya assesses your current situation and stage of pregnancy, anticipates your future needs, and helps you become informed and prepared for labor, birth, and the postpartum period. Support often includes education on comfort measures for common pregnancy aches and pains, fitness programming, nutrition advice, birth planning, and learning self-advocacy.
Pregnancy and Fitness
Many people are afraid to work out during pregnancy for fear of harming the fetus. But the truth is that not exercising is associated with complications including excessive weight gain and an increased risk of developing high blood pressure and gestational diabetes. Under the guidance of Tanya, a midwife, Certified Personal Trainer, Crossfit Level 1 Trainer, and Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach, you can get and stay in shape without worrying about your safety – or your baby’s. Tanya will create a personalized fitness plan that helps you feel physically and emotionally prepared for labor while avoiding exercises that cause discomfort or excessive stress on the abdominal wall and pelvic floor.
Pregnancy and Nutrition
Did you know that your baby is more likely to prefer to eat foods that you consumed while pregnant? Did you know that your diet can have profound effects on the future health of your baby and that scientists have found a correlation between maternal diet and risk of allergies, obesity and other conditions? Tanya will help you meet the nutritional demands of pregnancy to keep you and your baby as healthy as possible.
