“I was able to recover quickly between pushes because of what I learned in your class, and I remained very calm and focused. I used the muscles I worked on in your classes, core strength, and sheer will power to finish delivering her as the doctor walked in with forceps.  The moment she emerged, I was filled with elation, relief and pride. I didn’t know what I was made of until that moment. It was the best I’ve ever felt.  Your classes helped give me the physical and mental strength to give birth my way, and I am so happy with how things turned out.” -Julia O, First-Time Mom in Seattle, WA

“I am so pleased with my entire pregnancy and birth experience and really have your  training and prenatal care to thank for a lot of it!!”  -Sarah W, First-Time Mom in Seattle, WA

Bodies for Birth is first and foremost a fitness company, but it’s so much more than that.

It’s your village and your source for connection and resources in the community.  It’s my firm belief that women deserve to be supported holistically throughout pregnancy and postpartum.

I promise to meet you exactly where you are,  providing referrals, support, education and commitment all along the way.

I can honestly and proudly say that I’ve created a company that I wish had existed when I was an expectant and new mom.  It’s my absolute privilege to do this work and I would be honored to be by your side. -Maura Shirey, Creator, Bodies for Birth 

Initial phone consults are always complimentary!

“I have to tell you that everyone (midwives, pediatricians, family, etc) are very impressed with my physical recovery and I know I owe a lot of that to you! I actually expected to have a harder time recovering from this pregnancy than my first one, but that hasn’t been the case at all. I felt strong almost immediately postpartum and I think my abdominal muscles recovered faster this time. I of course have some work to do there, but my core felt supportive and connected  within the first week.” – Second-Time Mom in Seattle, WA

“I cannot believe how much the breathing you taught me helped throughout labor!  My doula was shocked at my calm composure and strength as I returned to my breath over and over.  It really works!  Thank you!”  A Happy, Strong & Calm New Mama in Seattle, WA
