I believe that knowledge is power.

Since college, I’ve always had my nose buried in a book so I can continue to enhance the lives of my pregnant and postpartum clients. I used to spend hours at night losing myself in a prenatal page-turner.

After seeing the information that was out there, I knew I had to create a resource so expecting mamas can have a healthier pregnancy.

I’m happy to report that all of those late nights of reading paid off and I became a published author sharing a step-by-step guide on how to prepare the pregnant body for an easier delivery and faster recovery.

*I was able to make my unique way of training available for moms everywhere!*

Once I finally got my book published, I couldn’t stop.

So I decided to bring my book to life by creating the Knocked-Up Fitness and Wellness online prenatal membership! But like I said, I believe that knowledge is power…so you can still find me today getting lost in the pages of countless pregnancy books.
