"I'm so glad that I got the Before the Bump program! There's so much information in the program, but it's broken into small, useful tips that aren't overwhelming.

Thinking about having a baby is scary enough, but this program is helping me get my body and mind prepared to start the motherhood journey.

And I love that it's not just about food or exercise but it includes mindset too.

I'm glad that I have this knowledge to work with before trying to get pregnant!"

-- Julie B.

"It was very well laid out! It was nice to have it be a weekly thing because I didn’t feel overwhelmed to sit down and learn for hours on end. But if I felt like learning more one day, I could watch more than one at a time!

Learning that I had to prep my body with prenatals before even trying to conceive was a big surprise.

I didn’t realize how important it was to prep your body and mind before starting to try, and I think it helped a ton to conceive so quickly!"

-- Kelsey, blogger at "Little Bits of"

"I truly cannot thank Brittany enough for her help and guidance through the Before the Bump course! I am a very Type-A personality, someone who wants to plan for and control everything...and I know nothing about pregnancy! The most important lesson I learned from Brittany was there are things in life you can control and things in life you cannot control. Through the Before the Bump course and consultation with Brittany, I learned what was most important to try to plan for in my pre-conception journey and what items I needed to learn about but might not be able to control. Every single one of the sections in Brittany's Before the Bump course taught me valuable lessons about health that I will carry throughout my life. Sections were concise and full of valuable, interesting information. Lessons related to optimal health and performance, not only relevant in my pre-conception journey, but also helpful to continue to improve my (and my family's!) overall health in the future. And now, I am also very happy to share that my husband and I are expecting our first baby! Thank you Brittany for your kindness and understanding, knowledge and passion throughout my learning process. I truly believe your guidance and support greatly improved my physical and emotional status while preparing for this journey; we are so thankful for your presence in our lives!"

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! Although it was designed to be completed over about 6 weeks, you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Who is this course for?
This course is ideal for anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of planning for a pregnancy, and wants guidance in getting started. In our experience, the typical "preconception consultation" you might experience when visiting your OBGYN does not include recommendations for lifestyle interventions to optimize preconception and pregnancy health. The intention of Before the Bump is to fill in those information gaps and support you in implementing small changes that can have a lasting impact on your health and that of your future children. After each lesson you'll come away with concrete action steps you can take to start intentionally preparing for this amazing transition.
How far in advance should I take this course?
Whether you are currently trying to conceive or are planning a pregnancy in the next year, Before the Bump can be a helpful tool.
I have nutrition and fitness "down," can I still benefit from this course?
Yes, absolutely! One of the biggest challenges we see when working with clients is a resistance to shifting their intention to preparing for pregnancy. Training for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum healing looks very different than training to PR a lift or fit into our favorite jeans. Additionally, we cover topics like recommended preconception labs and dietary supplements, both of which are key considerations in your pregnancy planning journey.

I’m Brittany, a nurse practitioner, BIRTHFIT professional, mama, and creator of Before the Bump, an online E-course for women planning a pregnancy. As a women’s health professional, I am passionate about partnering with women to attain their health and wellness goals, especially as they prepare for pregnancy.

In spite of my conventional medical training I believe the current healthcare system leaves much to be desired. Even as a student nurse, I sought out tools that would allow me to care for my patients (and myself) in a more holistic way. Since that time I’ve pursued training in functional and integrative medicine, herbs and essential oils, fitness, mindfulness, and yoga.

I’ve always felt called to serve women on their motherhood journey.

As I was preparing for my first pregnancy, I set out create a platform for sharing resources that support health from preconception through postpartum (and beyond). That platform includes this course.

I'm so glad you're here!
