Our Approach

The demands of your journey are specific. Your training should be too.

Just as running a marathon or playing a tennis match requires a training program specific to each activity, the same is true for the childbearing journey. Discover how our Performance Training Approach helps you prepare your body to successfully manage the stresses of pregnancy and childbirth, then recover from those stresses most effectively afterward.

Prenatal Training

We follow a 3-Stage approach to train you for 3 goals simultaneously: an easier pregnancy, a smoother childbirth, and a faster postpartum recovery. You’ll begin in the Foundation Stage. Just like building a house requires starting with a strong foundation, this stage is where you will master the principles of proper alignment, core activation, and movement mechanics that will set you up for success, not just in your pregnancy journey, but for the rest of your life. Then, you’ll progress onto the Strength Stage where you’ll focus on building your strength to mitigate the common pains and injuries caused by the stresses of pregnancy and physical demands of early parenthood. Finally, toward the end of your pregnancy, you’ll move onto the Birth Prep Stage where you’ll practice specific strategies to help you physically and mentally prepare for labor, and learn simple (but powerful) tips to help expedite your postpartum recovery.

Postpartum Training

For postpartum training, we also follow a 3-stage approach to help you effectively recover from pregnancy and labor, and get back to doing everything you love (and perhaps more).  You will begin your training in the Foundation Stage where a key focus will be progressing through the PROnatal Core Recovery Protocol to rebuild your core from the inside out, heal Diastasis Recti, and restore strength to your pelvic floor. You’ll also work on proper alignment and movement mechanics to help expedite your recovery. Then, you will move onto the Strength Stage where we will focus on safely and progressively building your strength (especially core strength).  Finally, you will move onto the Performance Stage where the objectives are largely dependent on your goals — whether that’s resuming high-intensity activities, getting back to your favorite sports, or simply preparing for maneuvering life with a 30-pound toddler. It’s absolutely possible to emerge even stronger than you were prior to pregnancy.
