Member Success: Tai

By The DAHLC The DAHLC (@dahlcsocialmedia)

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

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens (@ahrensdesiree)

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 (@ahrensdesiree)

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.

By Tiffany - Coach Tiffany - Coach (@dudleytiffany)

When I started my career at the DAHLC, I’ll never forget the time I met my first prenatal client. I began thinking to myself, what exercises are safe? How am I going to work around this growing belly? So many questions and I was very curious to learn more! The more I kept reading, the more […]
