These days you want to avoid long hospital stays.
Traditional birthing classes and regular fitness workouts won’t give you all of the tools and information you really need to be successful heading into the big day.
MY CLASS WILL HELP!
Moms are easy targets for the fitness industry.
But that Instagram influencer you love for outfit-of-the-days and Amazon deals doesn’t know what movements are healthy (and safe!) for you and your baby. Those Free YouTube videos that you’re watching won’t come close to preparing you for one of the most challenging physical events your body will ever experience.
See, I have more experience than most of these influencers have combined and it’s NOT because I’m a decade older than they are. I KNOW PREGNANT WOMEN.
Instead of organizing your dressers and folding onesies, start strengthening your body and learning how to RELAX.
Nesting is normal but knowledge is power! I’m a Physical Therapist AND Diastasis Recti Expert who has specialized in prenatal and postnatal fitness for nearly fifteen years. I’ve created an all-encompassing prenatal class that’s fun, easy to understand (and do), and fits into your busy lifestyle. I’ve removed all the unnecessary and annoying fluff in most prenatal workouts,
I give you that honest, big-sister-talking-to-you-over-decaf-coffee truth
about your pregnancy. Nothing’s off-limits. How to push a baby out of a tiny hole without leaving a disaster in the rearview mirror, check. How to avoid worsening an abdominal separation that contributes to that unsightly after-birth beer-belly look, check. How to do more than just survive the first 6 weeks postpartum, but how to THRIVE as a new mom in a new body, CHECK!
PRACTICING SELF CARE IN PREGNANCY
IS AS SIMPLE AS PRESSING PLAY!
Let me take the guesswork out of designing a safe exercise program, and show you how moving your body better can offer comfort, relaxation, and stress relief when you need it most.
Exercising during pregnancy can help your baby’s development.
A study published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise shows that staying active doesn’t just benefit you. Infants of mothers who exercised in pregnancy scored higher on tests of development and maturation. By getting active, both you and baby benefit!
Don’t make the mistake of failing to register for this MUST TAKE prenatal class.
“I’ve been doing really well after this pregnancy – probably the best I’ve ever been post-partum. The strategies that you talked about regarding labor really helped me. I didn’t hardly tear this time, and feel that I pushed correctly for the first time. And I was bouncing around feeling great only days after!”
Prenatal Pilates Student
“So glad I got to take this class to be able to learn proper abdominal exercises that were different from my normal routine for exercise. I really think I’d have messed myself up doing crunches or other things before taking this class.“
Prenatal Pilates Student
“I could not believe how quickly labor went! The breathing techniques were what got me through the contractions. I was amazed that I was able to stay in control. I can’t thank you enough for everything we learned in prenatal Pilates!”

Here's a snippet of what you
should expect from the program...
But Carrie, Why do you not have “before and after” photos?
I’ve seen women with a body mass index that would land them in the overweight category but have strong, functional core muscles.
I’ve seen stick skinny women where I could sink 2 hands into the crater between their rectus abdominus muscles.
And I’ve seen everything in between.
You absolutely cannot judge a book by its cover, nor should we be glorifying images and messages that celebrate the idea that smaller is better and less is more.
The current standards of beauty often portray unrealistic body types that are not a true reflection of what real health looks like.
I am striving to change the narrative in order to celebrate wellness of both mind and body, encourage you to move your body better wherever you are at, and helping you to celebrate the miracle that is the female body.
