After going through a transformative birthing experience, Kellie Edson was inspired to pursue childbirth education. As she began her work with expecting parents, Kellie realized that families could be best served if perinatal services were together all in one place. So in 2018, she opened The Root in Sacramento — the city’s first holistic perinatal wellness center offering prenatal + postpartum yoga, childbirth education and community support. 

Now that The Root in Sacramento is a thriving, nurturing community, Kellie has turned her sights towards expanding into a second location in San Diego’s Pacific Beach neighborhood, just right off the 5 on Garnet Ave. The San Diego location’s offerings are the same as the flagship Sacramento location, including: 

Fitness Studio

The Root offers its members unlimited prenatal / postpartum yoga, strength training and Pilates classes to help you find strength, balance and joy. Members can come into the studio or take the classes virtually from the comfort of their own home. 

Class types include:

  • Prenatal Yoga
  • Baby + Me Yoga
  • Pilates
  • Postpartum Pelvic Floor + Core Flow
  • Strength Training
  • Amba Movement

Childbirth Education + Resources

One of the cornerstones of The Root’s mission is to provide families with a wealth of knowledge and resources. The center offers a variety of classes and workshops designed to empower parents with the information they need to make informed decisions and navigate the early stages of parenting with confidence. Classes cover topics such as childbirth education, breastfeeding, newborn care, and postpartum support. 

The Root can also provide referrals to local doulas, lactation consultants, physical therapists and other perinatal experts to help you through birth and beyond.

Community Connection

Beyond its regular fitness and childbirth classes, The Root serves as a hub for community engagement and connection. The center organizes regular gatherings, support groups, and events for individuals to share experiences, seek advice, and build lasting relationships with other families.
