Holistic Pregnancy Support

Individualized support during pregnancy is essential but no two people have the same exact set of needs. At Mother Wit, we meet you where you are. We listen, assess your current needs, anticipate your future needs and help you form a plan to become informed and prepared for labor, birth and the postpartum period. For many this includes comfort measures for common aches and pains, understanding how to stay active, eating well, birth planning, learning self-advocacy tools and more.

Pregnancy and Exercise

What could be better than working out with a midwife by your side? Tanya is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Crossfit Level 1 Trainer and Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach. Your personalized work out will not only keep you in good shape, which is excellent preparation for labor, it will facilitate the best possible fetal positioning and will avoid exercises that can cause discomfort or put excessive stress on your abdominal wall and pelvic floor.

The most common reason I hear from women for not exercising during pregnancy is a fear of harming the pregnancy. The truth is, not exercising during pregnancy is associated with complications including excessive weight gain and an increased risk of developing high blood pressure and gestational diabetes.

It is recommended that pregnant women exercise for 2.5 hours per week in a fairly even mix of cardio and strength training. However, my years of experience as a midwife have taught me that people are frequently afraid they will harm themselves or their fetuses or just the opposite, that they feel they can push just as hard as they always did. In reality, the truth lies in between and varies from person to person. Both midwifery and my more recent training as a P&PA Coach emphasize the importance of individualized care and training through pregnancy. Message me to learn more.

Pregnancy and Nutrition

Did you know that your baby develops its tastebuds in utero and is more likely to prefer the foods that you consume when 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?

Let us help you meet the nutritional demands of pregnancy. 

If you are interested in learning healthier cooking strategies or are in need of a better understanding of your caloric requirements as well as creating a healthy balance of protein, fats and carbs, we will get creative on your behalf.
