If you prefer to read rather than do an online program, I have 4 books for you to choose from. Take some time to relax and unwind with a book that will educate and empower your health and wellbeing.

For Pregnancy and Childbirth

Prepare to Push™ 

This book informs and empowers women with an honest, loving, and no-fluff look at how pregnancy and birth change our bodies – and how to best support these changes.

It blends fitness principles with the supporting aspect of a doula to help women achieve a more comfortable pregnancy, a fabulous birth, and a body they feel confident in all the way through motherhood.  

Here are a few things you will learn:

  • How to prepare your body for birth using the principle of specificity
  • Why you should adopt the traditional practices of mother roasting
  • What core exercises to do in pregnancy
  • Why the first 8 weeks postpartum are critical to your long-term health
  • The best birth positions to minimize tearing
  • The relationship between your pelvic floor and back pain.
  • How to heal diastasis recti
  • How to optimize pushing
  • The spiritual and emotional connections to your pelvic floor

Pregnancy Fitness

In 2015, I was presenting at the canfitpro fitness conference with my former business partners from Bellies Inc.  After our session, a woman came up to us and introduced herself as the acquisitions editor from Human Kinetics.  She asked if we would be interested in authoring a book for them on prenatal exercise.  

Of course, the answer was yes!  It was also the catalyst for creating the Pre/Postnatal Fitness Specialist Certification. This book is free for anyone who takes the course.
