Today we’re talking about movement (even if you aren’t an avid exercise or have had little to no energy to actually workout) can prepare you for birth, recovery, and motherhood! Join me now during this live conversation with one of our biggest questions from other Knocked-Up Fitness mama’s.

I’m definitely the biggest fan of working out through pregnancy, so I really believe that correct movement will give you more benefits! You should never feel completely exhausted after your workouts. Instead, you’re goal is to leave the workout feeling energized and more connected. This is something I teach in the Knocked-Up Fitness Membership.
Feeling your core connected and understanding the relationship between movement and breath is imperative to working specifically to improve your labor, birth, and beyond.
Let's Talk About the Deep Core, Labor, and Why The Membership May Change Your Birth Plan
Learning how to strengthen, release, and breath into your deep core can help you avoid an episiotomy… and not tear! (Yes, even first time moms!) Becoming an effective ‘pusher’ means shorter labors and more efficient pushing, decreasing severity of tearing or even not tearing at all!!! If you’re planning a cesarean birth, the simple deep core training movement will help you feel stronger than ever!
In the membership, you’ll learn what movement can do to improve pregnancy symptoms. I address back pain, incontinence, poor posture, pelvic organ prolapse, diastasis recti, difficult labor, tearing, effective pushing, and more!
THE BEST PART OF ALL OF THIS IS THAT YOU DON’T NEED TO EXERCISE TO EXHAUSTION. EVER.
Through movement with simple and effective exercises, you can truly feel amazing. In addition, you’ll be learning the right way to connect to and strengthen your deep core! Everything you need to help your body support the strain of pregnancy is available to you in one place. Check out the deep core tutorials, workouts, release exercises, and even more additional information on movements for birthing and beyond. Specifically giving you guidance to better prepare your body (and mind) for birth!
