Our Why

We know what it’s like to expect that our healthcare system will tell us what we need before and after birth, only to realize that we are actually the best people to determine how we will give birth and what feels right or wrong postpartum.

We believe moms need to be listened to, tended to and respected. We feel that when given the knowledge they need, moms are equipped to make the best decision for themselves and their families.

Providing these things take time. Time that is sometimes not available in our current healthcare system, unfortunately. 

We have seen moms benefit from:

  • education on how to safely exercise during pregnancy
  • learning that their bodies are capable of giving birth and ways to support their bodies and reduce risk of injuries
  • more than a single, rushed visit postpartum
    • Other countries provide this as a standard of care, so we are taking a bold step to help provide more support postpartum. 

So we have pursued training in obstetrics and pregnancy and postpartum topics to make sure that moms who want these options can have them. 

Alex is here to support you as you gain knowledge and confidence in your voice, your body and your abilities throughout your motherhood journey.

What Clients Are Saying

...my husband and I had no idea there were so many different labor positions and were unfamiliar with the many stages of labor... she explained anatomy concepts i n a way that was easy to understand... My husband and I feel so much more empowered and confident after working with Alex.
Expectant First Time Mom
...Alex was a very motivational instructor and was able to provide great feedback... Her knowledge is extensive and this workshop gave me the confidence to get back into postpartum fitness safely.
First Time Mom
...The instruction and explanation from Alex helped me activate all of my muscles, especially those we don’t think of that need the most attention right after having a baby. She also did a fantastic job of modifying every exercise for each persons ability... The community that Alex builds makes it so much fun... I was so grateful and it has really jumpstarted my journey back into being physically active.
