Stephanie F."Monika is so down to earth and easy to talk to, which are essential traits you want in someone helping you through one of the most intimate and vulnerable periods of your life. Monika offered guidance on how to safely continue being physically active while pregnant, which was so important to me, as well as specific exercises that could help my body prepare for labor and postpartum recovery. Monika taught me that healing and recovery first is the foundation for rebuilding strength and offered small steps to safely achieve that. Monika is knowledgeable, professional and genuinely cares about her clients. I couldn’t recommend her more highly."
"As a certified Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Instructor, I deeply value Monika's input and collaboration in working with women. Her knowledge, personal experience and innovation in designing a program tailored to the unique needs of mamas during and after childbirth cannot be valued enough. The women I know who have worked with Monika prior to and following labor and delivery have reported excellent results with respect to feeling prepared and proactive in advocating for their care. Monika's well-rounded approach to the health and well-being of women goes beyond an average level of experience. I highly recommend her program, designed for women of all ages, and her expertise as a PT."
"I have not attended a Train4Birth class with Monika, but I did attend a workshop she led on the pelvic floor at a yoga studio in Chattanooga several years ago and she is an amazing teacher. When she works with people she imparts wisdom, gentleness and compassion. She will encourage you to become more aware of your body and in tune with it. She will help you strengthen parts of your body for birth that you did not know needed attention. You will benefit from her coaching both before and after your birth. Monika has doctorate in physical therapy and you truly are in good hands with this incredible woman. She also brings her own experience as a momma to her work. You will not regret working with Monika."
"As a massage therapist and bodyworker specializing in pre and postnatal clients, I want to highly recommend Monika and Train4Birth. She and her program are an incredible resource for empowering women to be pain free and confident in their motherhood journey. She is incredibly researched, attentive, thoughtful and sensitive to each client's issues and circumstances. I have learned so much from her and really trust her perspective on all things physical therapy, motherhood, and wellness. She is a true gem, a gifted clinician and PT, and a gracious human being."
"Pregnancy/postpartum can be very difficult, but Monika’s program makes the whole process so much easier. The exercises she shares are great at preparing you for a smooth birth process. Her positive energy is contagious, and I can not wait to use her program again for my next pregnancy!!"
"Train4Birth was exactly what I was looking for to prepare for giving birth. i joined the program in my 20th week of pregnancy, and I only wish I had been able to start earlier! I felt empowered and I know it helped me have a smooth delivery and strong recovery. I am grateful to Monika for her program and all of her personal help!"
"This course is AMAZING. Monika answered all my questions and made sure the class was right for my body before I got started. I learned so much about my body and have never felt healthier or more confident about motherhood."
"Monika is a wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional physical therapist. Monika helped me heal postpartum and I am truly grateful for her and her program."
