Our program, founded on three pillars of care—Education, Care, and Communication—provides essential knowledge, tools, and support from conception to six months postpartum. With a hybrid approach that seamlessly blends virtual resources, personalized workouts, and in-person physical therapy sessions, we ensure flexibility and convenience to accommodate your busy schedule. Plus, enjoy exclusive discounts and partnerships with local providers, because we believe it truly takes a village to navigate motherhood. Let us help you build your capacity through exercise, preparing you for the demands of motherhood. Say farewell to the constraints of traditional physical therapy and embrace comprehensive support throughout your entire journey. Experience the village you never knew you needed with the Athletic Mama program today.


Education is vital in our program, empowering you to navigate pregnancy, birth, and postpartum confidently. Understanding your body not only prepares you for childbirth but also aids in a smoother recovery. Many mothers express concern about the lack of education during pregnancy. At Ascend, we're dedicated to providing comprehensive education and have partnered with community providers and birth workers to offer a well-rounded program. Together, we address all aspects of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, empowering you to embark on motherhood feeling informed and empowered.
