008: Core Breath and Pelvic Health with Kim Vopni

 

This week Shannon is pleased to share insight from another enthusiastic expert on the subject of pelvic health. Kim Vopni, also known as The Fitness Doula, is the mother of two children. Her pregnancy and birthing experiences, along with her educational background led her to focus on women’s pelvic health. Kim holds a BA in Psychology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Health and Fitness.

 

Kim’s impressive education includes her certification as a personal trainer and pre/postnatal fitness consultant. She has completed training in The Hypropressive Method and Pfilates (Pelvic Floor Pilates) along with the Pregnancy Exercise and Birth Programming certificate with Burrell Education.  

 

Kim is passionate about normalizing the conversation around pelvic health and is an active voice for women of all ages. She is the author of “Prepare to Push- What your Pelvic Floor and Abdomen Want You to Know About Pregnancy and Birth”, offers courses through Bellies Inc., and is a distributer of the EPI-NO, a pre-pregnancy tool that helped Kim through her own pregnancies. She is also the owner of Pelvienne Wellness Inc. and co-founder of Bellies Inc.
