Pregnancy and childbirth are joyous and miraculous. However, they are also the most physically and emotionally challenging experiences a woman can endure. Dr. Lindsey Mathews created a movement called BIRTHFIT to offer a supportive community for women in motherhood transition and all cycles of life. Strength conditioning, nutritional guidance, emotional support, and educational resources are what make the BIRTHFIT community so popular.
