HI my name is Anita Guerra and i’m the founder and owner of Fit For 2 – Total Pregnancy Fitness since 2010. I”m a busy mum of 2, Midwife and Nurse, Personal and Group Exercise Trainer and i specialise in Safe Pregnancy and Postnatal Exercise and Pelvic Floor Health for Women. I’m passionate about helping others with their health, wellness and fitness goals thru this special time in their lives. I love spending time with friends and family and building my own personal development to share more with others!!
I’ve been a Midwife now for over 10 years and I’ve always had a passion for health and wellness. While working at the hospital in the birth suite and the postnatal ward, I had an eye opening moment in 2010 when I was seeing so many women obese, increasing diabetes, high blood pressure, pregnancy complications, pelvic floor issues and being totally unfit and unprepared for labour and birth and a safe recovery period. So to help protect women i created Fit For 2.
My passion in life is to be a successful female entrepreneur and help and ensure women have an easier pregnancy, labour and birth and a quick and safe recovery period with the correct exercises, nutrition, mindset, research guidelines and support.
And most importantly to protect YOUR Pelvic Floor!!
Now a mum of 2, I truly understand the need to remain active during your pregnancy to help minimize complications and to have a quicker recovery period.
In both my pregnancies I suffered from moderate SPD (from 28 weeks with daughter and from 13 weeks with my son) and the only things that helped were regular Resistance training exercise, Pilates, Hydro Pool walking, monthly osteo treatment and wearing the SRC pregnancy and postnatal shorts. These shorts saved my life and allowed me to remain active and in minimal pain.
Many physios, osteos, chiros and my obstetrician advised me that exercise was the best thing along with a supportive garment.
By continuing my exercise classes, I was able to continue work until I was 36 weeks pregnant and not require bed rest.
My continuation of exercise also allowed me to have a speedier recovery, especially regaining pelvic floor activation and having minimal separation of my rectus abdominal muscles.
