What in the World is a Pregnancy Coach?

Right off the bat let me assure you, this coach doesn't own a whistle. She won't make you run laps and she doesn't even like gatorade that much.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, I need to share with you the amazing power that coaching can have as you prepare to become a new parent. Just like a running coach will encourage and motivate you to get in shape for the big race, pregnancy coaching allows you to prepare mentally, emotionally, and physically for the birth of your baby. Pregnancy is much more than a medical event. It's an experience that impacts every facet of your life. As you progress through your pregnancy you may notice effects on your relationships with friends and family. You will surely experience physical changes in your body. You may have new worries or fears that you never considered before becoming pregnant. All of this is completely normal, but can be a lot to process on your own!

Enter, your pregnancy coach! Your coach is a listening ear, ready to accept you without judgement. Your coach will work with you to identify what you need and make a plan to meet those needs. They will offer tools and gentle guidance when it is needed. The goal of pregnancy coaching is to shift from a place of stress, anxiety and apprehension about the future to a place where you feel confident, comfortable in your body, and ready to be an incredible parent to your new baby! Self-doubt, anxiety, and fear are all to common pregnancy symptoms. Let your coach be a support through this time and we will cheer you on as you learn to thrive.
