Birthsmarter Prenatal Strength and Conditioning
Prenatal Strength and Conditioning (Zoom)
In our Prenatal Strength + Cardio class, the brilliant, Jamie Jones will guide you through variations of exercises that will help you strengthen and stabilize necessary muscles for birth while building confidence in your body.
During class, you can expect lots of breathwork to get you ready to breathe your way through birth, safe and intentional strength training, and low-impact cardio to keep you prepared for walking up and down stairs (because let’s face it, nothing can get you winded during pregnancy like a flight of stairs). This class can be done with just bodyweight and enhanced with small home equipment should you feel comfortable adding them in.
(All relatively inexpensive and small enough to toss in a bin and store in a closet)
- Yoga Blocks (1-2) or a firm pillow
- Small 9” pilates ball
- Small mini loop bands of varying resistance levels
- Light, Medium, Heavy dumbbells
In a world where it is difficult to keep sight of what is most important Birthsmarter aims to call our attention back to what is valuable. Do you notice that expectant parents spend more time choosing a stroller than they do a midwife or obstetrician? More time arranging their nursery than arranging comprehensive support for after the birth. As a business we have the power to convince you that pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal period are worth investing in. If we don’t, women and families suffer and you miss the opportunity to build an intentional foundation for your family; the foundation on which we’d like our society to rest.
Birthsmarter lives in the space where biology meets society, wisdom meets data, and empathy meets activism. We believe that transparency is the key to birth, babies, and business, that it is always worth investing in parents, and that together, we can change the world. Our unique birth and parenting classes offer expecting parents and their support team the information and practice that will enable them to think critically and improvise during high stakes moments. Our continuing education workshops empower health and wellness professionals to become trusted pillars of their perinatal community. We’re shaping the future, one birth at a time.
