Your Amazing Birth

Class 2

Having a Healthy Pregnancy

Preparing your body – both inside and out – for the challenge of labor is exciting. A personal trainer shows how to properly tone the muscles you will need for birthing, how movement can result in a more comfortable pregnancy, and how to encourage ideal positioning for baby. We introduce the nutritional program, thus providing a solid foundation in remaining healthy, strong, and low-risk. Finally, part of your physical training is preparing the mind, body, and spirit through relaxation practice, which occurs each class going forward.
