We exist to empower moms from conception through birth recovery and into active motherhood.

Historically, women have lacked access to high-quality and accessible care as they navigated their journeys through early motherhood.

We’re here to change that.

We believe in the strength of women to rise to the challenge of pregnancy, birth, and motherhood. We believe that it’s possible to do more than just “recover” from birth. We think you can be better than ever.


I gave birth in the middle of summer in our 400 sq. ft. NYC apartment.

After a 19 hour labor, I felt like I was hit by a bus. It really caught me off-guard, even though I’d helped guide hundreds of other women through their birth and recovery journeys. I didn't know where to start and I needed help. I reached out to my friend Jessica.

Jessica—a fellow physical therapist—helped me realize that this was bigger than my own recovery. We started to develop a program for moms based on proven principles from physical therapy. And so Chelsea Method was born in my fifth-floor walkup on 14th Street.

We spent the next year perfecting the program. Our goal was to set a better standard for postpartum care and make it available to moms everywhere. We won't stop until we've delivered on that promise.
