6-week holistic group wellness coaching program for pregnant mamas
6 weeks of powerful group coaching for the expecting mamas to be filled with knowledge, power and strength and community.
empower your pregnancy
These 9 months of pregnancy are the most transformative moments of a woman's life and even more impactful for the little you're carrying. Studies have shown that a mamas nutrition before and during pregnancy has an incredible impact on the health of little ones in the future. But pregnancy is also a trying time in your life. It's full of questions and concerns and most of all, the stress and desire of creating the healthiest habits for your growing little one. While you're never alone it often a terribly lonely path to travel.
In these 6 weeks working together, you will learn exactly what to eat for a healthy pregnancy (healthy foods & safe workouts), what supplements are essential and which you can leave behind, what specifics to focus on during each trimester, and many other critical factors to ensure a healthy, empowered pregnancy and a well nourished baby and mama. Not only that - but you'll join a group of mamas on the same path towards a healthier pregnancy. Share resources, fears, challenges and desires. Support each other, lift each other up, empower one another. All under the guidance of a prenatal wellness expert. The content for each week is delivered via an online portal. You'll work through it at your own pace and receive check-ins from me delivered to your inbox each Monday. Group chats will happen every Friday in the Facebook community and you'll receive TWO 1-hour coaching calls with Bri 1:1.
Does this sound familiar?
- Is this food OK/safe/nourishing?
- When and what should I eat next?
- Will anyone understand what I'm going through?
- What's the best snack right now?
- Is my baby getting enough nutrients to grow inside of me?
- Am I getting enough nutrients and calories to support this baby?
- What are these cravings all about?
- What if my non-mama friends don't align with my life anymore?
I know. I've been there. Over the last 6 years I've been pregnant 5 times and have given birth to three beautiful healthy children. I know what it's like to feel completely hopeless and helpless and confused and stressed and alone. I also know what it's like to be completely empowered, strong and confident throughout these precious nine months. Our biological, psychological and social needs are all connected and all affect our bodies and minds. In this program, we'll narrow in on the biopsychosocial model which is a fancy way of saying 'health' is a combination of not just body and mind but also social connections. True health cannot be achieved in a vacuum. It can't come from going alone. The way we interact with one another directly affects our health and wellness.
I went through it alone. But you don't have to.
Clarity. Confidence. Community.
The path to an empowered pregnancy and a healthy, thriving family.
Our work together will help you ...
- Discover helpful tips and tricks you can implement to help with the nausea, fatigue and the overwhelming feeling of yuckiness in those early (or later!) weeks of pregnancy.
- Know what to look for when purchasing your prenatal vitamins, your Omega3s and the other supplements all the blogs say you should be taking.
- Alleviate the uncomfortable side effects of pregnancy: swelling, heartburn, constipation, fatigue, brain fog, appetite changes, insomnia, just to name a few.
- Discover a tribe of mamas to support, uplift and empower you beyond anything you could achieve alone.

Why 'The Grove'?
Did you know that trees talk to each other? They help each other and support each other. If one is sick or dying, the others will transfer nutrients and support to it. The 'mother tree' looks out for the rest of the trees in her grove and makes sure they all have everything they need to thrive. There's been research upon research showing how amazingly beautifully trees grow together, support each other and help each other grow. That is what you'll experience in this program. A grove of trees, mamas going through this journey with you, all here to support and uplift you. And your 'mama tree' (that's me!) to make sure you have everything you need to thrive.
You have the chance, the opportunity, the ability to find an expert partner to hold your hand through this journey.
Together we'll wade through the slog and figure out the best possible way for you to nourish your body during pregnancy based on your eating habits, exercise plans and what your own body is craving.
You may not have all the answers - yet - and that's where I come in. I've got the knowledge, the tools, the secrets and the research I've gained over the years and I can't wait to share them with you!
I know what you're thinking: this is a HUGE decision! Is this really for me?
COURSE MATERIALS -
You'll have access to downloads, PDFs, coaching resources, printables, in addition to 6 modules of video content, checklists, toolkits and more. You will receive private membership to access all of these throughout the course as well as revisit after your 6 weeks have finished. When material is updated in the future, you will receive access to that as well!
LIVE ONE-ON-ONE COACHING -
Every Friday, you will have access to live coaching with me. Your questions will be answered and each call will be recorded to revisit in the future. The calls will last 90 minutes-2 hours depending on the topic and how many questions everyone has!
This is what we're all really here for right? *raises hand* This community is YOURS. You get to grow your own roots as a mama in a grove of women going through the same experience. You'll share ideas, resources, questions and concerns all moderated by me. These women will become your own grove, your friends, your sisters as you grow together.
STRESS TRAINING -
As a stress expert (both in practice - #anxiety, and training), I know how to cope, overcome and REPAIR stressors and the effects of stress in our lives. You'll receive the tools I use in my own practice as well as coping mechanisms from other experts in the field. You'll get access to meditations, breathing exercises, yoga asanas and reading lists.
You're not here to get a list of foods and be done with it. You're here to get your power back. To be the one in control of your body and your food and your exercise. That is what this program will give you. I don't go halfway - we're going to get you ALL THE WAY to your most empowered self. At the end of the day - YOU are in charge and I'm going to help you get there so you can experience the true empowerment transformation.
PRIVATE COACHING -
You will receive 2 private coaching sessions with Bri throughout the course of the program. Each mama is different and if your specific questions, eating habits, needs aren't brought up in our group calls, this is your chance to gain clarity. I want you to walk away leaving nothing on the table so use these coaching sessions to really dig in and get it all out there!
I work with women looking for a healthy empowered pregnancy journey.
