WHAT IS BIRTHFIT?

WHAT IS BIRTHFIT?

Our Mission is to cultivate awareness and enhance education throughout the motherhood transition by developing and producing one of a kind BIRTHFIT experiences through in-person classes and distance learning so that a woman has the space to make her own informed, intuitively guided choices.

 

Here’s what we’re about:

BIRTHFIT is a movement. It’s about expecting and postpartum moms taking charge of their bodies and their decisions, and 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, and consolidate all the common sense, time-honored wisdom, and recent studies we can find and present that information to you through various education models. Our pillars are fitness, nutrition, mindset, and connection. 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, and spiritual experience of a woman’s life. We want you to be ready in body, mind, and 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, and women who are involved in our local communities and we are all rooting for YOU.

Are you…

Our experiences and services are founded on four pillars:

 

FITNESS

To functionally train throughout the Motherhood Transition in all planes of motion to develop competencies and physical skills as well as enhance the main metabolic pathways. 

NUTRITION

To cultivate a relationship with food that is rich in color and nutrients from a wide variety of animals, fish, plants, fruits, fats, and starchy tubers, while nourishing the body through the different rhythms of life and the female cycle.

MINDSET

To create space between a stimulus and a response, to embrace a growth perspective, and create action around values in order to make decisions from a place of love rather than fear.

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.

What are we doing here?

Lindsey started BIRTHFIT out of her frustration with the information and care (or lack thereof) shown women in the prenatal, delivery & postpartum stages of birth. She constantly thought there has got to be a better way. Sometimes, “the better way” is an uncharted path. In this video, Lindsey shares from the heart about how BIRTHFIT got started and why she’s hell-bent on changing what it means to be pregnant in this day and age.
