You could say that One Strong Mama is an exercise program for pregnant people, and you would be right. But it is also so much more. It’s a movement. A movement of people who have decided they they don’t need to “just deal” with sneeze pee or back pain. A movement of people who want to prepare for a smoother birth and recovery. A movement of people who are taking back their pregnancies.
You deserve to feel strong, beautiful and functional throughout your pregnancy and we are here to help you.
Like our Strong Mamas, the website is smart. Enter your guess date (the word we use for estimated due date!) and the program automatically gives you content relevant to where you are in the journey. In addition to the exercise videos, you can learn about everything from your pelvic floor and core to back pain and SPD. We also have you covered no matter what type of birth you have planned with our Beautiful Birth section. No rock was left unturned as we developed our dream program for you. We welcome you to join the movement of people ready to take back their pregnancies and proclaim that they are One Strong Mama.
Hey, I’m Lindsay and a mother of four! My passion is pregnancy and birth. It must be in my blood because I come from a big family of Labor and Delivery nurses and OB/GYNs! Birth talk was dinner talk in my house. I believe that I have a unique skill set as an Exercise Physiologist who has not only spent years learning about exercise and movement but specifically how exercise and movement relate to pregnancy and birth. Beyond that, I have worked with hundreds of families as both a childbirth educator and a birth doula.
I believe that going through the entire process with families really gives me skills that cannot be obtained in a book or gleaned from a website. I believe that pregnant people deserve to feel strong, beautiful and empowered through pregnancy and birth. I believe that people do not have to “just deal” with back pain and sneeze pee just because they’ve experienced pregnancy and birth. I believe in the power of the amazing transformation that is becoming a parent, whether the first time or the twelfth and whether unmedicated, medicated or surgically.
I believe in parents and I truly believe that helping pregnant people is my life’s work. I am passionate about giving pregnant people the tools to have easier pregnancies, births, and recoveries and look forward to working with you to offer this to your clients.
Hi, I am Lauren and a mother of three. I am an internationally recognized Yoga + Pilates teacher specializing in core and pelvic floor issues. I’ve been teaching movement and training teachers for the past two decades. I create online exercise programs that are challenging, unique, safe, sustainable and life-changing.
I am also a trained childbirth educator and am passionate about shifting the idea that pregnancy is not an illness. I want to empower pregnant people to believe that we do have what it takes to be a part of this unique process, including the many innate shifts, changes and transitions. To that end, my work focuses on cultivating balance, strength and resilience. I love teaching and showing pregnant people that they have the physical ability for a pregnancy, the inner calm to be present for their birth and the adaptability to parent. It is not an uphill battle once you have the tools you need to be a part of this wild and crazy journey and I look forward to being on this learning journey with you.
In addition to Yoga and Pilates, I am also certified as a Restorative Exercise Specialist™, in Neurokinetic Therapy® and in Anatomy in Motion.
