Deep breath, you. Yes, parenthood is challenging. Full stop. It is also a transformational experience, and guess what? YOU MATTER in all of this.
I’ve been feeling strong and solid in my workouts and noticing I’ve, slowly but steadily, been adding heavier weights!”
This group is EXACTLY what I needed. I feel like I am back home. Thank you!”
Thank you for giving me parts of my life back. It’s so bleak when you talk to doctors that tell you that you are basically crippled with a bladder prolapse."
I’m Jessie! Your fitness, body image, and pelvic health guide – and the start of your support system at To Pregnancy and Beyond.
I have a handful of degrees that have helped to make me a specialist in prenatal and postnatal exercise, and I’ve helped thousands of parents receive the fitness TLC they deserve.
I am focused on effective exercise during pregnancy and postpartum, rehab of the core and pelvic floor, postpartum and C-section recovery, teaching people how to exercise in a way that feels truly good, and helping folks feel capable in their bodies.
My fitness coaching is non-diet and weight neutral focused.
Here, we are getting closer to a full tank of energy, a confident body mindset, and workouts that leave you feeling powerful and strong. A physical power and strength that translates to the rest of your life.
As an MD, I think one of the most important things I learned during pregnancy/postpartum is how arbitrary 6 weeks is (for delivery, surgery, broken bones, anything big really). Yes, after 6 weeks most people are “fine”. Very few people are “well”.
It’s all support and sisterhood, all the time. And no judgement, EVER."
Every month we donate on behalf of To Pregnancy and Beyond members to an organization that helps support mothers, families, and children.
I WISH someone had given me this advice with baby #1, it would have saved a lot of tears, stress and pain. SO glad to have a sensible, safe plan to follow this time around!”
For any pregnant person who wants to do optimal, appropriately challenging, and en-JOY-able exercise that is specifically designed to support the body’s changes of pregnancy. We will keep you moving, strong, comfortable and preparing for a healthy postpartum recovery.
The Prenatal Track is for any stage of pregnancy. The workouts, that change every 4-weeks, specifically fit the phase of pregnancy you are in. We have had members go through the Prenatal Track for 1, 2, and 3 pregnancies!
For new parents, those with older kids, people who have experienced loss, adoptive parents – and more – who want to get the most out of their workouts, efficiently (because we have no time to waste!). Appropriate for those with diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence, and other pelvic health concerns.
The Postnatal Track progresses you through a new workout plan every 4-weeks, ongoing. We have had members working out with us for 6+ years now, through the Postnatal Track!
I am incredibly passionate about nurturing you through this life and parenthood journey. Let’s use fitness as a tool to elevate every aspect of your physical, mental, and emotional health.
You will be directed to a consultation form where we will grab some info from you: your pregnancy phase, how long postpartum you are, or where you are in your parenthood journey.
I am here to help you HEAL AND THRIVE. Your joy matters. I want to help give you the confidence and energy you need to take care of YOU.
OMG…I can jump rope without leaking!!!! This is huge for me! Love this program!”
Most of our TPAB members are working out 2-3 times per week, doing strength training and interval focused sessions that take 15-30 minutes.
For exercise equipment, you will need dumbbells (at least a ‘lighter’ set - 10/15 lbs - and a ‘heavier’ set - 20-30 lbs), resistance bands (at least a ‘lighter’ and a ‘heavier’ band), a bench or sturdy chair. We will send you a ‘mini band’ that you will need, in the mail!
You can always ask in the Facebook group if you need a modification for an exercise based on what equipment you have access to. If you are working out at a gym, you will be set.
After registration, you will receive an equipment list with suggested options if you are starting from no at-home gym equipment. It is totally possible to do these workouts from work with very little exercise equipment, and on a budget.
As soon as 2-3 weeks post. Most moms, including those who have had a vaginal or Cesarean birth, can begin to start back with our gentle postpartum core and pelvic floor recovery program at this time point. Of course, always check with your medical provider to ensure your OK’d for this start date.
This course is designed for folks with full schedules! The strength training workouts typically take 20-30 minutes maximum, and the interval training workouts take 10-15 minutes. I make sure to keep this easy, accessible, and manageable because I GET how tricky this can be to fit consistent workouts in.
Many To Pregnancy and Beyond members are currently managing and treating pelvic organ prolapse. The experience is different for everyone. The goal is always for our people with prolapse to be able to strength train and challenge themselves optimally, without ramping up, or worsening POP symptoms. The beauty of To Pregnancy & Beyond is that we can have constant communication in the private Facebook coaching group to modify for your body and needs, too.
You bet! We would love to have you. If you have been strength training and exercising consistently, please let us know on the consultation form after you register. We can start you at more challenging workouts, if required.
