Meet your Coach   Hi I’m Coach Harmony. I’m almost two years postpartum with my son Judah. During and after pregnancy, everyone told me to just listen to my body. But that advice didn’t help me to scale appropriately or to heal well early postpartum. I've spent the past few years searching for better advice and learning so much! I've always had a passion for nutrition and fitness, but that has expanded to helping women of all athletic abilities through pregnancy and postpartum and their new stage of life! I’m certified as a Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach and as a PN Level 1 Nutrition Coach.

Listening to your body isn't enough

So often, the fitness advice given to the pregnant and postpartum mom is "just listen to your body." But this advice isn't helpful! 

These are completely new stages of life and you don't know what you're listening for! 

You want to make sure you and your baby are safe, but how do you do that?
 - Can you do what you've always done?
 - Can you get diastasis recti if you do certain exercises? 
 - When should you stop doing certain things?

It can be a very confusing stage to navigate.

We're here to help.

Tell me more about PregnanCY & Postpartum Athleticism

Who is PregnanCY & Postpartum Athleticism For?

Pregnant and postpartum athleticism is for every woman who is pregnant or postpartum whether you had your baby 8 weeks ago or 30 years ago. PPA is important for women to help avoid those perceived normal pelvic floor dysfunctions, like leaking, pain, or prolapse. 

WHAT is PPA?

Pregnant and postpartum athleticism teaches women how to properly recruit their pelvic floor throughout exercises, whether their fitness program is CrossFit, jogging, yoga, or beachbody workouts, as well as during activities of daily living like lifting your baby or stroller.  It is important to properly utilize your pelvic floor to help heal and avoid common pelvic floor dysfunctions while pregnant and postpartum that up until recently we thought we had to just live with for the rest of our postpartum lives.

HOW will we incorporate PPA ino our lives?

PPA coaching can help guide you in learning how to properly move, learn about our body, our pelvic floor and change our relationship with our body.  The goal of PPA coaching is to create good habits physically and emotionally.  We will talk through our birth experience, help heal old wounds and bond with other ladies.
