General Prenatal Fitness
Exercise is always beneficial. However, when you’re preparing to give birth, the way your body moves can greatly influence your experience during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum. Prenatal fitness prepares your body for the very event it was created for, as well as keeps you healthy and fit during your pregnancy.

Our Mission - FIT4MOM helps moms make strides in fitness, motherhood and life.
We’ve all heard the generic recommendation for exercise in pregnancy, “Do what you’ve been doing and listen to your body.” Well, at Bodies for Birth, we believe and know we can do better.
People ask us what makes us different…we’ll tell you:
It’s the intentional program design, the childbirth education woven into every single class. It’s the specialized services that have been created based on exactly what the pregnant and postpartum body needs to feel it’s best. It’s our community of mamas who long to be active participants in their journey throughout motherhood–individuals seeking education, informed decision making and holistic wellness. It’s the village of friendship that grows week after week.
Ours is a powerful, loving community of strong mamas! If you’re ready to feel energized, strong and to gain fitness in pregnancy (yes, it’s possible!!), let’s get started! We welcome you to join us!
Our musculoskeletal system plays a big role in getting and staying pregnant, giving birth, and recovering afterwards. Posture Therapy is a way to get out of acute and chronic pain, improve overall alignment, balance and mobility through gentle corrective exercise. The exercises are personalized to your posture, your needs and your abilities. They can be done from the comfort of your own home. Your routines are designed to help you meet your goals and makes pregnancy, birth, and postpartum recovery easier.
Posture Therapy might be right for you if:
-you’re struggling to get pregnant and are worried your poor posture is a contributing factor
-you’re suffering from aches and pains during pregnancy and want to make your labor as quick and easy as possible
-you’re a new mom with aches and pains from carrying your newborn and breastfeeding in what are sometimes not-the-most-comfortable positions
-you have more than one child and feel like a jungle gym and think you have pain as a result
Courtney has been helping people get out of pain through Posture Therapy since 2011. She is an Egoscue Institute® certified Posture Analysis Specialist. She has worked/trained under the founder of the method, Pete Egoscue, at Egoscue Headquarters in Del Mar, CA. Meet Courtney in 60 seconds in her video headshot: http://bit.ly/

Empowered Pregnancy is a group of Certified Nurse Midwives and Professional Doulas working to improve the healthcare and birth experiences of women in the greater Seattle area. We are excited to bring our practice to a new birth and wellness center opening in Kirkland later this year.
We are proud to be the only certified nurse-midwifery owned and run birth center in the State of Washington. Being a certified nurse midwife, as well as a nurse practitioner, allows us to prescribe a wide range of medication that our patients might need, offer nitrous oxide and narcotics during childbirth and provide gynecological care and primary care to nonpregnant women. This enables us to care for women throughout their lifespan.
Our practice offers a wide range of services. We have a full-service doula program, offer a wide range of educational classes, a nutritionist on staff, and a complementary therapy room where our clients can receive massages, acupuncture, and other complementary health services.
Our midwives have over 20 years of experience and have caught well over a thousand babies. Our midwives believe in family-centered care and that the client should be an equal partner in her health care decisions. We have a highly trained and supportive staff so our families can feel safe while having the birth experience of their choice. In the rare instance that there would be a complication, our midwives are experienced in handling all OB emergencies and Evergreen hospital is just across the road from the birth center.
FIT4MOM is dedicated to the Strength In Motherhood™. By providing classes and support for moms in every stage of motherhood. Through Fit4Baby's prenatal fitness classes, Stroller Strides, Body Back, and Our Village.
