Books By Kim Vopni
Your Pelvic Floor – The Inside Story: Education & Wisdom From Pelvic Health Professionals Across The Globe
Prepare To Push: What your pelvic floor and abdomen want you to know about pregnancy and birth
This book is designed to inform and empower women with an honest look at how pregnancy and birth change the body and how women can best support their body through these changes. Written by Kim Vopni – The Fitness Doula, Prepare To Push™ highlights the need to prepare the body for birth and recover with core restoration. As a mother of two, Kim used many of the techniques in the book to prepare for and recover from her own pregnancies and births. It is a truly unique book that blends the fitness principle of specificity with the support aspect of a doula to provide women with information and body awareness that will help them achieve a more comfortable pregnancy, a fabulous birth and a body they feel confident in throughout motherhood. Prepare To Push™ is a mind-body approach to pregnancy, birth and postpartum healing. Women will learn about their bodies in a whole new light with information that is too often overlooked in typical prenatal education when it should be foundational knowledge even before conception. This book will ensure women are not left asking ‘why didn’t anyone tell me about this before?’
