BRIANNA BATTLES- 10 years of Pregnancy/Postpartum Change
Show Notes

Today I am speaking with Brianna Battles, the Founder of Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism. She teaches fitness coaches and practitioners how to understand the needs of their pregnant and postpartum clients (and sometimes their own bodies) so they can go out and be the expert in their community. As a strength and conditioning coach, she realized there was a need for more resources for pregnant and postpartum athletes. She believes the biggest impact can be had when coaches are trained how to help moms regain their athleticism and is doing that through her coaching certification. 

 

We talk about: 

-changes in athletics in the last 10 years 

-no guarantees in pregnancy 

-overcoming birth trauma 

-expanding access to information 

-coaching is creative 

-pushing for answer 

-a lifetime of athleticism 

-different isn’t bad 

-P&P Combat
