BIRTHFIT is a movement. BIRTHFIT is an approach to birth. BIRTHFIT is a state of readiness. BIRTHFIT is your support team. BIRTHFIT BEND, OR is here for you!
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.
It’s about expecting and postpartum moms taking charge of their bodies and their decisions, and supporting one another’s journeys—together and apart.
Four pillars of birthfit
- FITNESS - 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.
- NUTRITION - 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.
- CHIROPRACTIC - To be structurally balanced and free of subluxation, so that the nervous system can function ideally and communicate with all systems of the body.
- MINDSET - 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.
Where did birthfit begin?
Dr. Lindsey Mathews started BIRTHFIT out of her frustration with the information and care (or lack thereof) shown women in the prenatal, delivery & postpartum stages of birth. She constantly thought there has got to be a better way. Sometimes, “the better way” is an uncharted path. In this video, Lindsey shares from the heart about how BIRTHFIT got started and why she’s hell-bent on changing what it means to be pregnant in this day and age.
