About the Workshop and Trainer
Gail Janicola is the founder of Moms On Top, and has been a certified childbirth educator for over 2 decades. She is also a certified health coach and a pre & postnatal corrective exercise specialist, blending these treasured skills to create a roadmap for physical and emotional health throughout a mother’s life, from pre-conception to “empty nest”.
Gail is a dedicated, compassionate professional, providing unbiased, evidence-based information, mentoring, and support for all moms, including moms-to-be and their partners. Woven throughout the courses she offers is a non-judgmental, integrated approach to pregnancy, labor, and birth, encompassing not only the tools to manage the pain of labor and influence its progress, but also - the path to a healthy mindset around birth and subsequent parenthood, the principles to lifelong physical and emotional health, and the building of self-advocacy and partnerships with family, friends, and medical caregivers.
Gail is a grateful, active, young-at-heart mom of 3 grown children. She loves to cook and travel, and her “perfect” day is one spent with her family, her sweet puppy, and her cherished friends.
“Gail has a warm, loving, endless energy to her that wraps you up the moment you are in her presence. She is passionate about her work and offers a thorough, in-depth preparation for childbirth. I can’t recommend her enough."
"Amazing educational, empowering, enlightenment!! Gail is a wealth of knowledge and by then end makes you feel comfortable both with whats going on in your body and in advocating for yourself if need be! HIGHLLLYYYY Recommended!"
