Member Success: Tai

By The DAHLC The DAHLC

Working out always makes me feel better, but like so many people I struggled to actually do it. There was never enough time, […]

“Feel good” during pregnancy

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens

What if we just didn’t know?

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens

We have information-overload today. Instant access to information is at our fingertips, whether it is valid or not. If we have a question, we google it immediately. Fortunately for my sanity during my first pregnancy I did not have a smart phone. It was still hard to sort through the noise to figure out what […]

You fed them how much!?

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens

Pumping sucks. Literally. As a mom returning to work, it really sucks. Not only are you away from your baby, but this pump is supposed to trigger your hormones to make milk for your baby. Not sure about some of the new pumps on the market, but mine looked nothing like my baby! Plus, I […]

Compassionate Moms

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens

Did you have them naturally? Do twins run in your family? Did you use fertility drugs? Are you going back to work? Did you get an epidural? Are you sending them to childcare?

I GUESS you can keep exercising…a personal tale of prenatal exercise

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens

I rode my bicycle to my first prenatal appointment. I had competed in triathlons for the 4 years prior, so riding my bike was very natural. At the appointment, one of the health care providers hinted that I probably should stop riding my bike. Now that I was pregnant, I wouldn’t want to do anything […]

My Birth Stories

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens

When I was 37 weeks pregnant with my twin boys my feet were swollen, I gained 10 lbs in about 3 days, and my blood pressure shot up. At my prenatal appointment the next day, my midwife informed me it was time to get these boys out before I went into full-blown preeclampsia.

Moving During My Pregnancy & Adjusting Workouts

By Ashlie Smith Ashlie Smith

Essential Yoga Experience In addition to some other classes I have been trying, I decided to attend a Saturday morning Essential Yoga class, instructed by Julie. While I thrive in the cardio, strength and high-intensity interval workout classes, yoga and Pilates have not been part of my exercise repertoire. I realize, however, the importance of […]
