What is BIRTHFIT?
(We're glad you asked.)
BIRTHFIT is a worldwide movement of women and men, coaches and athletes, practitioners, chiropractors, teachers, movers and shakers who are changing the game in the world of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
- BIRTHFIT is a movement. It’s about expecting and postpartum moms taking charge of their bodies and their decisions, and supporting one another’s journeys—together and apart.
- BIRTHFIT is an approach to birth. We challenge the status quo and ask the questions no one else asks. We read, research, experiment & consolidate all the common sense, time-honored wisdom & recent studies we can find and present that information to you through various education models. Our pillars are fitness, nutrition, chiropractic & mindset. We unconditionally support YOU—the birth mom & birth partner—to make the best decision for you and Baby.
- BIRTHFIT is a state of readiness. Childbirth is perhaps the most physical, mental & spiritual experience of a woman’s life. We want you to be ready in body, mind & spirit for the experience of birth and the lifelong journey that follows.
- BIRTHFIT is your support team. We are a team of practitioners, educators, chiropractors, coaches, nutritionists, fellow mamas, men & women who are involved in our local communities and we are all rooting for YOU.

The Four Pillars of BIRTHFIT
To functionally train throughout the Motherhood Transition in all planes of motion to develop competencies and physical skills as well as enhance the main metabolic pathways.
To create a relationship with food that is rich in color and nutrients from a wide variety of animals, fish, plants, fruits, fats, and starchy tubers, while nourishing the body through the different rhythms of life and the female cycle.
To be structurally balanced and free of subluxation, so that the nervous system can function ideally and communicate with all systems of the body and your baby. Adjustments restore ease in the body to facilitate a healthier, more comfortable pregnancy and birth.
To create space between a stimulus and a response, to embrace a growth perspective, and create action around values in order to make decisions from a place of love rather than fear.

Emily has been in the fitness world for 6 years with a background in D1 athletics and a lifetime of sport. Along with sport, she has had a love and passion for pregnancy, birth, and babies. These two fell beautifully hand in hand when she found BIRTHFIT back in 2011. From then she began learning the specifics that go into prenatal and postpartum training and hasn’t looked back! Through this process she completed the DONA Birth Doula Certification at Binibirth and has attended 6 births. Through fitness, nutrition, chiropractic, and mindset practices, Emily not only fulfills her life through BIRTHFIT but most importantly shares this growing community with the women around her.
