Have you heard about the Body Ready Method exercise program? (Formerly known as One Strong Mama)

It’s a program for pregnancy and postpartum that helps you learn how to move appropriately, exercise correctly, and learn the best steps to help yourself have a comfortable pregnancy, delivery and postpartum. With this program you may be able to avoid many of those common pregnancy aches and pains and the postpartum results such as pelvic floor dysfunction, prolapse and diastasis recti.

I have been attending births since 2011.  Every year approximately 22-30% are first births, 10-15% of the births are VBACS,  50-60% are waterbirths and 2-5% are c-sections.

In addition to graduating from ATM School of Midwifery and completing an apprenticeship, I have completed the following training and certifications.
