Jaime Gallup, founder of The Mama Benefit and Benefit Doula Services, has been in the health and fitness industry for over a decade. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science and Health, & a Masters Degree in Movement Sciences from the University of Idaho. She is a Certified Group Fitness Instructor, Birth Doula, 200hr trained Yoga Instructor and a Trained Prenatal Yoga Instructor. She is also a mom of 3.
While finishing her last semester of graduate school, she found out that she was pregnant with her first child. Her background in exercise science led her to learn as much as she could about the birth process from a physiological, anatomical and emotional point of view. Since then, she has had three amazing birth experiences of her own. Because of the incredible support that she had during her labors, Jaime developed a strong desire to help support other women and families through labor and birth.
Coming from a health and fitness background, she was upset to learn about what few perinatal fitness resources are available. This inspired her to help bring this information to others.
Jaime has personally felt the difficulties and challenges facing moms and understands the importance of movement, proper nutrition and education. The Mama Benefit will help you along your own path as you discover what works for your body and your family.
