What Clients are Saying

Allison’s perinatal fitness classes have been so helpful to me both during and after my pregnancies to keep me fit and strong. When I was preparing for the birth of our second baby, I knew that I wanted to try for an unmedicated birth. More importantly though, I wanted to feel connected to my body during the labor and delivery process regardless of the mode of delivery. I took Allison’s coordinated pushing workshop to prepare myself physically and mentally, and I’m so glad that I did! In the workshop I learned about what happens to the body during labor, and how to effectively breathe during contractions and pushing. Allison’s use of analogies for the different breathing techniques helped to keep me calm during my labor as I knew what to expect. I would definitely recommend Allison’s coordinated pushing workshop for anyone who is expecting a baby, regardless of how you plan to deliver.

“My husband and I took Allison’s “Push Workshop” about a month before our due date. The workshop and instructor are fantastic! The information was very helpful. It went beyond the basics of our birthing class by explaining the mechanics of effective pushing and what’s happening on an anatomic level. It was helpful to visualize what my body and baby are doing during the breathing and pushing techniques.

Also, plan to have your partner involved for this workshop! My husband left the workshop feeling prepared to be my support when it’s “go time.” Allison encouraged us to work as a team, even when we’re practicing at home. I can’t say enough good things about our instructor, Allison. She’s amazing! She’s so knowledgeable about the birthing process: she answered all of our questions and demonstrated the correct breathing and pushing techniques (no easy task on Zoom!). My husband and I left the workshop feeling empowered and more prepared for labor and delivery. If you’re looking for something that goes beyond the basics of birthing with an amazing instructor, this workshop is for you!”

-Hadley, Prenatal Fitness and Coordinated Pushing client

“I’ve had a successful birth and wanted to encourage other moms-to-be to take your classes. I used the techniques I learned in (Allison’s) Prenatal Fitness classes and Coordinated Pushing workshop for labor and delivery, and it really helped me physically and mentally prepare, actually deliver, and also understand the recovery process of what muscle is sore and why. This portion specifically on recovery was the most enduring since the first week I just feel like a bus hit me regardless of preparation but I can only imagine how worse the soreness of my back, biceps, and, and legs would have been had I not been training with you. There’s so many muscles I just didn’t know I would need on game day but am so glad I prepared.

The workshop also helped my husband coach me through the birth and it felt like a team effort for us. It’s been great working with (Allison) and I’m looking foreword to the Baby and Me classes!”

“Allison’s post-natal classes are so great! Full of energy and she always provides modifications to suit different fitness levels. She is so personable and also interacts with the kiddos on the calls, too. I look forward to them every week!”

-Postnatal Fitness Client

“Allison’s classes are amazing and I really appreciate her energy, plus she is so good at providing alternate moves (low and high intensity) which is so helpful when you are dealing with the unpredictable ups and downs of pregnancy. I have never felt like there was a workout I couldn’t do under Oh Baby and I have always felt supported during the workouts – that is another thing that makes Oh Baby shine above the rest. 

I am also grateful for Allison’s pushing class, which exposed me to all sorts of information and exercises that have aided in my confidence and readiness for labor and delivery (soon I hope, since I am currently 38 wks).”

-Mae, Pre/Postnatal Client

“ I am so thankful I took Ally’s Coordinated Pushing Workshop when I was pregnant! As a first time mom, I didn’t realize how little I knew about labor before taking the class. During the class, Ally explained the labor process in a way that allowed me to visualize and act out what to expect step by step. She gave my husband and I explicit things to say/do during labor. We practiced nightly, so that by the time I went into labor, we were both prepared. As my due date got closer, Ally even did a refresher class with us, which left us both feeling confident for when our time came. During my delivery, the nurses and doctors were all impressed with how efficient each of my pushes were during contractions. I was in active labor for only 15 minutes. I owe that to Ally’s coaching, and especially the phrase “push from the gut, not from the butt!”. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone having a baby! “
