MOVEMENT:: During pregnancy we should should aim for 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week. That's 50 minutes 3 days a week or 30 minutes 5 days a week. Moderate intensity means you can still carry on a conversation throughout the workout.
BIRTHFIT is more than just fitness. It’s also about nutrition, mindset and connection.
Mindset may be most difficult pillar! The BIRTHFIT definition of Mindset includes identifying your values and then create action around those values from a place of love. 👉In the prenatal period, choose workouts and exercises that strengthen and empower you while keeping yourself safe and showing your incredible body (and mind) some grace! You are now training for birth! And remember, just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. 👉In the postpartum period, again show yourself some grace. Give yourself time and space to heal . 💚
BIRTHFIT uses development movements and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) principles through Functional Progressions.
The Functional Progression movements were developed based on the idea that our muscles form in a very natural way during your first year of life but bad habits in movement (or lack thereof) can lead to compensation, poor movement patterns and pain as an adult.
All of the movements are used to develop the core and should be performed with intention to improve stability. The exercises should be performed knowing that #slowisfast , transitions are just as important as each movement itself and quality is more important that quantity!

Let’s talk about what @birthfit isn’t.
It’s not a rush to get your pre-baby body back, because your body will never be the same after having a baby, and that’s not a bad thing.
It’s not a push your body to the limits to shed extra weight exercise routine because, in fact, those extra pounds are there purposely. And, thankfully, our bodies instinctually know exactly what to do and when to do it to grow your beautiful new baby.
BIRTHFIT is not a competition with other moms in the group to see who can lose the most weight, do the most reps, have the cutest baby, or any other way we may compare ourselves.
It’s not even an “exercise class” per se... so what’s the point?
BIRTHFIT IS a safe space to connect with other mommies who are in the trenches with you. It is unconditional, nonjudgmental, “OMG you too?” discussion designed to empower you as a new or repeat mommy.
It’s reconnecting with your body after 40 (give or take) weeks of constant change and relearning (and establishing in some cases) mind-body connection.
It’s laying down foundational and functional movement. There’s a big difference in moving and moving well.
BIRTHFIT has a saying that “slow is fast”, which is something I’ll need constant reminding of on this postpartum journey I’m going on for the second time. The easy thing to do would be to numb out and crush it at the gym to try to hurry my body into whatever unrealistic expectation I’ve placed on it. Allow yourself to let go, trust the process, and move your recovering body intentionally and safely. Postpartum is forever, so why rush? ❤️ #birthfitmsp#postpartum#motherhoodtransition#stpaulmoms#minneapolismoms
