The BIRTHFIT Basics is a one-time, in-person 60-minute consultation with Dr. Candace Gesicki. Your BIRTHFIT Basics call will provide you with new avenues to explore during pregnancy, strategies to enhance your nutrition, movement and workout suggestions, and practical advice to prepare for labor and delivery.

You will receive a follow-up report from Candace that reviews the topics covered for your pregnancy and goals.

The BIRTHFIT Basics is not to replace any advice of your health care provider nor will it give you a medical prescription advice or a diagnosis. BIRTHFIT will give you support, information, and a constant resource for you to explore and take an ACTIVE role in your pregnancy.  SCHEDULE YOUR CONSULTATION!

This treatment includes, but not limited to, chiropractic adjustments, muscle therapy, mobilizations, and RockTape to prevent and heal diastasis recti.  This is the best deal to help with a healthy, speedy recovery.
