Today, Midwife and P&PA Coach Elena joins me as we discuss all things birth. So often we hear “fit pregnancy = perfect birth”, but in Elena’s experience, this is not always the case. So how do we prepare? Elena shares 5 considerations pregnant athletes should have for preparing for birth. Some of them might surprise you!
Elena is based in England and is the founder of Wise Mamas Wise Mamas and a fierce advocate for family-centered care.
