Movement can be a very integral part of healing as your body navigates the ‘I just birthed a whole human,’ phase of recovery. This 45-minute class is designed to help you regain confidence in your core, strengthen muscles that may have atrophied during pregnancy, and build endurance to keep up with your family . With a strong focus in functional movement, you’ll feel empowered and confident in your knowledge to get back into all of the things you love that help you to feel strong and healthy.
In postpartum breathwork, we’ll be waking up core muscle groups, get blood flowing with low-impact cardio, and tackle daily movement patterns so you can move through your day more comfortably. This class can be done with just bodyweight and enhanced with small home equipment when you’re ready
(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
- Ankle/Wrist weights
In a world where it is difficult to keep sight of what is most important Birth Smarter 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.
Birth Smarter 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.
