Individualized support during pregnancy is essential, and no two people have the same set of needs. We assess your current needs, anticipate your future needs, and help you become informed and prepared for labor, birth, and the postpartum period. Support includes education on comfort measures for common pregnancy aches and pains, fitness programming, nutrition advice, birth planning, and self-advocacy skills.
Pregnancy and Fitness
Many people are afraid to exercise during pregnancy. But the truth is that a low level of physical activity is associated with complications including excessive weight gain and an increased risk of developing high blood pressure and gestational diabetes. At Mother Wit, you get a midwife, Certified Personal Trainer, Crossfit Level 1 Trainer, and Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach all rolled into one! We 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 foods that you consume while pregnant? Did you know that your diet can have profound effects on the health of your baby and that scientists have found a correlation between maternal diet and risk of allergies, obesity and other conditions? We will help you find strategies that work for you so that you can more easily meet the nutritional demands of pregnancy.
