As Seattle Explodes Around Us, Moms and Moms-to-be Find Sanity, Solace and Strength with
Bodies for Birth
Pregnant and postpartum women are ﬂocking to Bodies for Birth for specialized exercise
instruction, labor preparation and a close knit community amidst a city that is changing all
Registered Nurse and Pre- and Postnatal Exercise Specialist, Maura Shirey , of [Seattle,
WA] is on a mission to create a "birth and ﬁtness revolution," improving the health of future
generations one mom and baby at a time. As Seattle changes at lightning speed, the timing
could not be more important.
"It's not about getting back into your skinny jeans, it's about setting your child up for optimal
health at birth and beyond. We live in a fear-based birth culture that is full of misinformation and
myths surrounding exercise and pregnancy. Yet, the numerous beneﬁts for both mom and baby
are undeniable and backed by science," reports Maura. Her mission is to provide education,
resources and to change the current conversation and culture.
"The pressures of parenthood are magniﬁed by a rapidly changing Seattle; an ongoing
discussion topic among attendees as they strategize to arrange and save for maternity leave,
child and healthcare costs." The Bodies for Birth community is providing solace, sanity and
strength amidst the chaos; empowering women in mind and body, while utilizing movement as a
forum for education, stress reduction and self-awareness.
Group classes and one-on-one sessions are held at the Outrageously Fit training studio located
in Ballard. Prenatal Intervals and Mom & Baby classes are offered as a series of four or ﬁve
sessions meeting once weekly, encouraging familiarity and community among classmates.

schedule and to enroll! Classes are small, so book early to reserve your spot! Maura can be
