You know those events or moments in life where you just need a good nights sleep (or 2) to really digest and assimilate everything that happened? The first-ever, BIRTHFIT Coach Seminar was one of those events. For the entire last week, I’ve been reflecting on “what the heck just happened, how did this happen, and how do we do this again?” Being part of the seminar staff was such a gift. I was privileged to witness the long hours of behind-the-scenes prep, the beautiful, daily intention created by Dr. Lindsey Mathews, and the authenticity of the entire seminar (staff and participants alike).
Most people signed up so that they could expand their coaching tools for their pregnant and postpartum athletes. They definitely got that… developmental kinesiology and ontogenesis, physiological adaptations during pregnancy, appropriate movements to train for birth, and to rehabilitate postpartum. What they didn’t expect was the intangible “more” that is BIRTHFIT. It’s not just well-researched information, it’s a community, a mindset, a way of approaching birth that empowers women and partners during this spiritual transformation.
BIRTHFIT sees moms as full expressions of health and vitality. For a woman to even become pregnant, she as to be on the fit end of the wellness spectrum. She is not disabled. She does not need to out-think (or out-work) what her body innately knows how to do. She needs to be supported, empowered, and loved. This is BIRTHFIT’s commitment and what I feel was so deeply felt during the Coach Seminar.
