Introducing Brianna Battles New Online Course

Strength Training and Adaptations for the Pregnant & Postpartum Athlete

Are you pregnant and looking to continue fitness or strength training?

Are you a mom who is looking to return to exercise and performance stronger than ever?

If so, this course is for you!

 

I’ve created information to empower you to continue the training you love while being mindful of the impact pregnancy and childbirth has on the core and pelvic floor. Listening to your body and doing what you’ve always done isn’t enough. Most coaches in the gym aren’t up to date on the needs and demands pregnant and postpartum athletes.

 

There has been a significant lack of evidence-based information that provides YOU with the tools you need to train smart during pregnancy and return to the gym postpartum….until now.

The blog about Chance's birth is here, but it's so much more than a birth story.
Our story is of significance in many ways and needs to be told... send this to a woman who needs hope. 💙

"I had a chance and that chance was hope for full circle healing in way I had not yet been able to cultivate."

I've had a lot of people ask me how I'm doing. And then say, "but really, how are you?"

That's because I've been open about how much I struggled with postpartum depression and anxiety after having Cade. It went undiagnosed for a long time, and wasn't until the clouds lifted so to speak, that I could admit/recognize that I wasn't normal...that my feelings of being chronically overwhelmed, stressed, crying, short tempered and incredibly anxious to the point of continual tears...wasn't just part of motherhood.
Denial. I blamed tiredness, a traumatic birth and a challenging baby.

I was worried about experiencing that again, which is why Chance is honestly a miracle baby for us.
I've put in a lot of work to learn more about myself, and prepare as much as possible for this venture.
Although we are only 10 days postpartum, how I'm feeling now is incredibly, amazingly, different than how I felt last time. I'm calm, more confident and engaged. I feel love and a lot less anxious than expected. Dare I say...normal?

Of course this requires continual awareness, and the hard part of returning to work, losing the support of having some help, etc is on the horizon, but this time around just feels so different.
I cried multiple times a day when Cade was a newborn, feeling like I was failing in all capacities. I continually compensated and put on a strong face.
With Chance, even with some struggles, I'm so much more relaxed and haven't cried over motherhood. It feels like a miracle.

I have an appointment pre-scheduled with my therapist.
I took this test at my OB's office today.
My Physical Therapist, @juliewiebept sent me a test to get baseline data and keep monitoring it.
My husband knows how he can support and is taking extended time off work.
And I'm still working on seeking and accepting further support from my village.

We can't do this alone, and I never thought I would be someone who would suffer- I thought I was "too strong minded"😑, but now that I know that I'm far from invincible, I'm doing everything I can to be proactive and open so we feel less shame and more inclined to share, show up and get help when (or before) it's needed.

1 week ago, I saw my baby boy pulled from my stomach and brought immediately to my chest where I got to have skin to skin in the OR.
There's so much to say about the details of Chance's birth (blog coming soon...). 💙

This experience has forever changed my heart, my healing and has fulfilled all that I had desired. It was such a redeeming, powerful, maternal experience. I am still trying to process it.

I'm forever thankful to my OB who heard me, advocated for me, and the team at the hospital who took the chance to change traditional policy to allow for this experience for myself and other women to come.

I am forever changed and forever grateful for this chance.
